Jackson’s Winnie the Pooh birthday party

This past week was a huge milestone in our family–Jackson turned one on Wednesday, April 18!  We waited until Sunday to have his birthday party, and he really enjoyed himself.  I had wanted to have it outdoors in the backyard we’ve been working so hard on, but the weather didn’t cooperate. Jackson had a great time anyway, and that’s what really mattered.

My husband loved Winnie the Pooh as a child, so we chose to do a Winnie the Pooh first birthday party.  He had tons of the plush characters, so I used those for the decorations, and his gorgeous (and yummy!) cakes came from Got What it Cakes.

Aren’t those cakes wonderful?!

I know it’s not Winnie the Pooh themed, but I got this book to use as a message book for all of Jackson’s birthdays until he gets it as an adult–full of years and years worth of notes, advice, and well wishes from everyone important in his life.

Jeremy and Debby {Wedding} The Sharpe House, Statesville NC

If you’ve followed my blog at all, you’ve probably seen some praise for my buddies over at Lunahzon Photography.  They photographed my family portraits on the beach earlier this year, as well as little Jackson’s baptism!  What I haven’t shared yet (and I’m way past due) is their own special day–their WEDDING this past December.  Yep, the awesome Jeremy and Debby over at Lunahzon are a sweet husband and wife photography team!

I was so honored that they would ask little ol’ me to photograph such an important day in their lives…I mean, whenever another photographer wants you to do something for them, it’s a little nerve racking!  This was truly one of the most fun, special weddings I’ve ever attended-it was all about the love, love, love, and who they each are as individuals as well as a couple.  (you’ll notice their logo made a cameo on the gorgeous cupcakes by Cheesecake Etc.!)

Oh, and how gorgeous is this bouquet from the always fabulous Chelish Moore Flowers??
