Life is full of special moments; big moments, small moments and all those in between.  I believe in (and love) celebrating "Just BEE-cause" and this tea party was the perfect occasion for doing just that with our friends.

When summer arrives I start to eagerly look forward to our annual Frio River trip.  We have been going to the Frio with good friends for 9 years and it's always a great time.There is something so relaxing about being disconnected from reality (no phone, TV, internet, work or daily distractions) and surrounded by good friends.  Although we may not see or talk to each other for a while we pick up right where we left off, as if it were just yesterday we were here.This vacation has slowly evolved as … [Read more...]

Oink, Baa, Moo, Parker & Piper are 2!  Our sweet babies, just turned 2 and we had a barnyard bash to celebrate!  I have been planning this party for a few months and couldn't wait to celebrate but we had a few minor snags along the way.  This was going to be an outside party complete with a barn, horse coral and lots of hay, but the weather didn't cooperate and left everything soggy and wet so we had to have the party inside.     When I decided on the theme "Barnyard Bash" I knew I wanted it to … [Read more...]
