Easy Deconstructed July 4th Flag Cake

One of the hardest parts of celebrating July 4th with kids in the in-between stages of babyhood and pre-teens is the tricky timing of fireworks and bedtime.  Add rain on top of that and it's sanity saving quite tempting to completely skip over the holiday with a young family. Our first July 4th as a family of four was super easy: we lived in Jersey City at the time and had an amazing 360 degree rooftop view that allowed us to see about 5 sets of fireworks from Manhattan to deep into New Jersey. 

Here's a throwback pic...

What Happens on Your 9th Wedding Anniversary

Uka and I met in September 1999 - we were 18 years old, and I just a few weeks shy of my 19th birthday. It really does feel like it was yesterday.

Planning a Perfect Party with Paperless Post

Disclosure: I received product to facilitate this review; all opinions expressed are my own.

My Baby Boo at his 1st birthday
It's hard to believe that Grayson turns 4 years old in just a few short weeks, and this year since I'm traveling his birthday weekend I pushed his party out by a week. He is quite the opinionated preschooler and has requested a train themed birthday party so when Paperless Post reached out to partner together it was perfect timing! I've always loved seeing the beautiful details when I receive a Paperless Post invitation (the most recent being my sister's upcoming bridal shower), and I was happy to see they have quite a few adorable train-themed invitations. 

Take a look...
