Lilly’s Owl-Themed 2nd Birthday Party

September 8, 2015

A few days ago I realized that I’m over two weeks behind on sharing pictures from Lilly’s birthday. WHOOPS. My bad. I love sharing images from personal events in our lives like this because, well, this blog has really served as an online journal for me for nearly a decade. It’s fun to look back and reminisce and see all that we’ve done and all that we’ve been through as a family.

Anyway, I’m rambling…

Lilly LOVES owls. For real. Homegirl LOVEEEEES owls. So, when I asked her what she wanted to do for her birthday party, without hesitation she said, “OWLS!” So, we had a little owl-themed birthday party for her. We kept it simple and just wanted to focus on having little details, in addition to hosting a fun party for all the people we love and all the people that love Lilly!

I hope you enjoy some of the images from her party!

And, of course, my sister made the owl cake and knocked it out of the park AGAIN. Lilly was SO excited for this owl cake. Plus, it was DELICIOUS.
