Birthday Bash: Day Two! CONTEST CLOSED

The Not-So-Blog

The first year of Lily’s life was stressful to say the least. When she was 6 months old, we evacuated for Hurricane Katrina and were living in a hotel room for 3 weeks. When we returned to a flooded home, we moved in with family while we renovated. We were finally able to move home around Christmas (4 months after we left). I was elated to be able to have Lily’s 1st Birthday Party at home!
