i am done with guilt
finished. i have no need for you anymore. i had all this guilt because i wasnt doing a whole list of things for arlo's first birthday party. you know, fabulous invites, favors, music, decorations blah blah blah. yesterday i broke free of all those trappings, why? because it was simple, easy and fun. thats right, i said fun! we had a great time, so relaxing. just friends hanging out, eating cake and plenty of space for kids to run around. really all that i ever want out of a party, and i am sure arlo would agree. so whew. it feels nice to have all that behind me. no more milestones for years to come i think. great! time to focus on the fun stuff like living, good weather, porch sitting, ice cream and night walks. yes. i think that sounds just about right. more pictures on flickr if you feel like looking. i know i love looking at pictures of people i dont know. seriously, i do. i dont want to jinx things, but it looks like kansas city is going to be cooperating on the weather front this week. blue skies and upper 50s. perhaps eliot can actually take his bike outside now. fingers crossed on that one. happy monday people, i am feeling it today!
