Lovely Gifts: Eva's 1st Birthday


little monkey!

2016 gave us the opportunity to celebrate the loveliest little munchkin's first birthday, Miss Eva Caroline!

Raine and I put together a birthday package for her in September; a colorful combination of handmade art, expensive apparel, and hand-me-down toys and book. Then we got to hold her, hug her, and try to keep up with her during our trip to Colorado after Thanksgiving.

Oh, the sweetness! Thinking of her makes me so happy.
