12 Candles

Wow. How did that happen? How did we go from this...

my sweetie this in such a flash?!


Yesterday, Izzy celebrated her 12th in style. (Nice of the calendar to cooperate and give us a Saturday birthday.) She started the morning making the skirt she's wearing above at a class courtesy of Autie and Uncle. (Side note: The fabulous fabric at Crafty Planet now has me itching to start sewing again.) Then we headed to Target Field to watch the Twins beat Kansas City (Izzy's choice instead of a party this year).


Last night she declared it a great birthday. (Violet still holds the title of best birthday present ever — and I'm guessing will for many years to come.) What a great 12 years I've had being her mom!


  1. OMG! She looks like a grownup! Hope she had a happy day.

  2. Amazing job on the skirt, too!!

  3. How wonderful! Seems like just yesterday when we were looking at her little baby photos and you were getting ready to go get her!

  4. So sweet! Amazing how quick the time goes!
