You see, on this particular weekend Marcus and I would travel to central Iowa to celebrate the first birthday of one sweet little man, Mace. This also meant I would finally meet one of my favorite blogging buddies, Sally.
As we approached Sally's front door I was worried, would they like us? Oh gosh, what if they don't? What if we have nothing to talk about? Oh gosh, what are we going to say? Am I going to sound like a blubbering fool? Oh gosh, what am I doing?!
Sally opened the door and we instantly were hugging. It was like reuniting with a friend I hadn't seen in years. I've grown to know (and love) Sally and her family via her blog, but we were finally talking, in real life (we have emails going back and forth something fierce)! All my fears and worries went by the wayside, and everything fell seamlessly into place.
I could gush on and on about the grown-ups time. But, the real reason for the meeting was Mace and celebrating his big day!
...Annnnnd, this is what we got...
|Playing together wasn't real high on the agenda of either boy.|
Naturally, my child decided smack dab in the middle of the party that he needed a nap. Because of this inconvenience we weren't able to stick around for cake smashing or birthday gift opening.
Sally and I decided we needed a picture of the four of us before we left the party.
|We ended up with a couple of quality group shots, I tell ya'.|
At least Sally and I have this one to hold near and dear.
|Isn't her niece just a doll?!|
Sally, thank you so much for inviting us to share Mace's big day. It was beyond amazing to meet you in real life, and I cannot wait for our next get together (just let me know when I need to pick you up from LAX)!!
