Ellie Sue

Summer parties can't be beat, and this one was the party of the summer.
My bestie's baby girl is turning one this summer, and so Kirra and Taylor threw her a magical backyard party on Friday night.

The decor, the desserts, the dim summer sunset fading into party lights strung across the yard.
I mean, magical I tell you!

Ellie Sue,
I fell in love with you the moment I held you in your beautiful Northwestern hospital room with that glamorous Chicago view.
I secretly love that you've always acted so happy to see me, and not-so-happy to see "Big Neal."
You know he's super tall, but every time it just surprises you I think.
It's just the cutest though.

You are book club baby, you are baby bestie, and you are (maybe!) birthday buddy to my little goose!
I cannot wait to see the two of you together.
I love you more than all the city lights twinkling in the sky above you.
Happy first birthday!
