MG TURNS TWO : styling the soirée >
OUR BABY GIRL IS TWO – HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIA GRACE! It was about 10 months ago that I started thinking about MG’s birthday, as I had just found out I was pregnant and that her little sister and was due just 16 days after her second birthday (making me a rather large 37.5 weeks!). If you know me, you will know I LUUUUUURVE throwing a partaaay, but I had accepted this probably wasn’t practical. Unfortunately this wasn’t to be though… After losing Charlotte in January I needed something, anything positive to focus on – and so this extravaganza was born!
To our darling MG – you are something else. Truly. Your love and energy for life is infectious, your smile melts the hearts of those around you, your laugh is beyond hilarious, your sweet and polite nature is something to be admired, your love of performing (!!!) brings us so much joy… I could go on and on, you are the light of our lives. Mummy’s heart and arms ache for your little sister every single day, but please know one day when you’re a big girl and reading this – YOU kept them warm. As the tears roll down my cheeks as I write this, know they are not just tears of sadness, but also tears of such pride and amazement at the gorgeous little lady you already are. We love you so, so much and it was such a pleasure (and welcomed distraction) to create the most magical second birthday for you x
