Good morning and happy Monday! Wow, it feels good just to sit down at the computer for moment and blog. I feel like my life has been on fast forward ever since Thanksgiving ended. Once Christmas was over for us, our crazy life did not finally slow down like every body else. I probably paused a moment to catch my breath from all the hustle and bustle that the Christmas holidays brings and jumped right into planning Jillian's first birthday party. I really wish I would of had more time to commit to planning her party, however in the end, I think it all turned out great. Every one had a great time, and most importantly, Jillian had a memorable first birthday. I plan on breaking down the big event into a series of posts, however, first things first, the invitation!!!
I ordered the invitation from Shutterfly and couldn't have been happier with the final result. All of my hard work in taking Jillian's monthly pictures paid off and the end result was this adorable invitation. One thing I did learn was that if you do plan on ordering invitations from Shutterfly, the turnaround time for regular shipping is at least ten days. Lesson learned for next year.
