ONE! my birthday boy {and a giveaway!}

"Don't cry because it is over. Smile because it happened."

Dr. Seuss

my sweet baby boy is one year old today. never has time passed so quickly as now. *sniff* this little boy with the ginger curls and silly grin has brought so much joy and love to our our family.

today we are going to get out of the house and see where the afternoon take us. maybe we'll visit the coffee shop, and then the saturday market. perhaps a stop at our favorite thrift store to see if there are any treasures waiting. oh, and cake, of course there will be cake. and singing and laughing and so many kisses.

we are planning a woodland themed party to celebrate all three of our may kiddos next week. i sewed luca a little wool felt party crown and a quilted bib so he will be properly dressed for the festivities.

aw, just look at that adorable woodland babe of mine ♥

and look, i made a woodland set for one of you too!

in celebration of luca's first year we are giving away this adorable wool felt forest crown and a quilted woodland bib. the crown features a happy tree with button leaves and the sweetest forest friends ribbon trim. it has a cotton covered elastic back and will stretch to fit until your child is 5 or 6 years, at least.

the bib has a patchwork top in some of my favorite prints (oh, that wood grain! swoon!!) and a layer of organic cotton batting in the middle. it is generously sized to keep your little one mess free!

to enter this giveaway simply leave a comment on this post. maybe a happy first birthday message for little luca!

we will have 2 more super fun birthday giveaways later this month so be sure to follow this blog so you don't miss out - and hey, go ahead and throw your name into the hat one more time for doing so by leaving an extra comment. also be sure to tell your friends to stop by and join the celebration!

on the evening of wednesday may 11th we will choose a winner at random.

i will be back in a couple days with a proper birthday post and lots of photos of luca's special day.

happiest weekend wishes, dear friends!


comments closed! i will post the lucky winners name in the morning :)
