This cold weather has me thinking back to our long, lazy summer days. I sometimes zoom back on my phone camera roll to look at past summer pictures just to see color and sunshine. While doing that this morning, I realized I never did a post on our youngest daughter’s 9th birthday party which was back in August. She just wanted a few friends over to have their hair/makeup done and to learn a dance to her favorite song. The more I do birthday parties, the more I learn that you really have to listen to the birthday girl and give them what their vision is. I had all these grandiose plans of a Lily Pulitzer party, but her only request was no theme, just bright happy colors and Claire’s makeup! So that’s what she got!
