Everyone sang one happy birthday song to my two little babies. It was the twins first birthday party and I felt a tear well up in my eye and pushed it aside allowing myself to enjoy this moment with them.


He loved the singing, the attention and the cupcakes- eating it all up as if he was famished. She on the other hand screamed at the candle flame (can you see her look of horror above, “Mom, not a step closer”)! She warmed up quickly though as the sugar from the cupcake entered her mouth.



For the twins first birthday party, the cupcakes were honestly some of the best I have had in my life. A Barefoot Contessa recipe and a grandma with mad baking skills made for a well feed party. They were topped with love…

They were also topped with a nice collection of orange fuzzy balloon picks that will soon be available in my new etsy shop, but we will save the talk about that exciting news for another day soon- stay tuned…

I hope you enjoy hearing about the twins birthday festivities. It was so fun to create and I am loving the chance to share it with you all.
