I like decorations. I like to color-coordinate. I like little details that probably no one else notices. I like all the "before" stuff that comes with a party.
Unfortunately, it means I tend to pick up my camera before the party really starts, and then put it down and miss all those "moments" during the party itself.
I captured a few... a very few.
The biggest thing I failed to capture, though, is how much it overjoyed me to have my friends and family around to celebrate our little girl.
I didn't capture the laughter and giggles of 6 toddlers when the bubbles came out. The way they grinned as they chased pink balloons. The way our little house was lit up with people and love and generosity. The perfect sunny, spring day.
We're awfully blessed, here in our little corner of the universe. Healthy, happy, full of love.
