Happy 1st Birthday Anna

 Hi friends! This is my first personal blog post, but I am so excited to share this one with you all because it is all about my sweet girl and our family these past few weeks as we celebrated her first birthday! I have always heard people say that time goes by so quickly when you have children, and y'all, they are  not  lying. I don't know how this past year went by so fast, but here we are and I have a one-year-old! I'm a ball of mixed emotions just thinking about it. I miss my tiny baby girl, but I love watching Anna grow into the sweet, sassy, and funny little girl that she is.  I knew I wanted to do a blog post about Anna's party so that I could give credit to all the people who helped make it so special (because yes, I'm crazy, and I used a lot of my talented friends to help pull it off). The inspiration for the party came from Anna's birth date; she was born on Easter Sunday of last year, so I knew that I wanted to do something with bunnies. Bunnies have always been her theme, and we’ve called her our “Little Bunny Girl,” so that’s where I drew inspiration. Once I started looking online at bunny parties, I had a hard time figuring out which direction I wanted to go because there is A LOT of stuff out there and a lot of different decorations and bunnies! The first decorations that came together were the floral hoops (I saw them some somewhere online). I asked my friend from Covenant Threads to make them and I was blown away. Once I had the hoops, they acted as the centerpiece for everything else (the cake topper, the headbands, the flowers).  I’ll give you fair warning now… if you continue to scroll through this post, there are A LOT of pictures. The weeks leading up to it and the week of Anna's birthday, I took pictures of some of the decorations for the party and we had pictures taken of the party, a cake smash session, and one-year family photos. According to my Instagram poll, you all wanted to see "ALL THE THINGS"…so that’s what I’ll show you! I’ll also put a list at the end of the post of the people who made each item and the photographers who took pictures for us because these people are  so  talented. I hope you all enjoy looking at this sweet girl's 1st birthday celebrations as much as I enjoyed it all coming together and showering our Anna girl with lots of love!  *on a side note, please ignore how bad the lighting is in some of the party photos, it was a SUPER rainy gloomy day so the pretty natural light we usually get in our home was all gone so we were working with lots of over head lights.
