My daugher, Blue-Eyed Bride, always says to me, "Don't try to force your writing; you'll just get stuck and won't be able to think of anything."
That is not my problem. I have PLENTY to write about; I just can't find a free second to do it. Gone are the days when I could stay up into the wee hours finishing my to-do list. For better or worse, I just figure I'll get to it when I get to it. This morning, I'm getting to it. And, not because I actually have time to do it, but because I am disciplining myself to write before I go do a million things that must be done today: All of my little family is coming home today for Labor Day weekend, plus we will see close friends from Louisiana who are in Ft. Worth, plus a few work-related chores that call for me.
I wanted to share pictures of this cute Giraffe theme birthday party for a one-year old last Saturday. My friend Marsha's little Brenden celebrated in style, for sure. Marsha did a great job picking the theme and colors; and, together we pulled it off.
What a fun day, and I'm so glad I got to be part of the planning and execution of Brenden's first birthday party.
