In my defense, we had the entire party set up outside on the back patio...

Having our friends and family around, the people who had been with us while I was pregnant, throwing us showers, and supporting us post birth with meals and cards, was a wonderful part of the day.
And it isn't a birthday without cake! We decided to do our own cupcakes so I could control what went into them. Organic ingredients and 1/2 the sugar. They were delicious.

She doesn't really eat sugar, so I didn't want to get her a cake from the bakery and have her go into a sugar coma.
I put together a little video to chronical Isla June's first year. We all gathered in the living room to watch it. So glad I took the time to get this together.
