All that talk of Valentines yesterday really got me in the mood for celebrating the holiday! Since I am packing up my home (or thinking of packing, because letsbehonest, I'm a procrastinator) instead of decorating for Valentines, I thought I would talk about our top 5 holidays with Mia.
Mia's 1st Valentines Day 2013... Dying over her tiny cuteness!
Eric set the bar real high for himself last Valentines when he surprised Mia and I with a sweet gift each day the whole week of Valentines Day! One day he came home with a stuffed dog for her, and she sleeps with it every night! It's the sweetest thing! We can't wait to see what you come up with this year, Eric, ha ha!
There's just somethin' 'bout small towns + holidays! My husbands teeny, tiny hometown does them best! Last Easter was such a blast! We went to the town's egg hunt, then Mia got to enjoy egg hunts with her cousins! She was a pro at finding the eggs and once she figured out what was inside? There was no stopping her from popping them open and shoving as much as she could fit into her mouth, ha ha! I have a feeling we won't be able to make it home for Easter this year :( so we will have to make it special for Mia in Arizona. But I'm already looking forward to it!
4th of July
4th of July 2014 Dress c/o Olive The Things
Mia's first 4th of July was spent on the beach in California, and ended at the Angels baseball stadium, it was so much fun! Her second 4th of July was in Eric's hometown... again with the small town holiday! The 4th is definitely my favorite holiday to go home for! Mia's had the BEST 4th of July celebrations so far, we'll have to come up with something real good this year!
Christmas 2014 Bow c/o Her Joyful Studio
I'm not sure there is an explanation needed here... With Christmas and Mia's birthday in the same month, December is a very special month for us! I can't even believe how each Christmas has been better than the last with Mia!
My birthday - January 2013
I've always loved celebrating my birthday (what can I say? I love the attention!) and it's even better to celebrate the ones I love! Of course, Mia's birthday tops all, but I'm determined to get a "little kid" reaction out of Eric from his birthday gift this year ;) I will never forget my birthday after Mia was born. She was just a month old and honestly? Her sweet, squishy cuddles was the only gift I needed... but then Eric gifted me with my first ever spa day and my post pregnancy body has never been so grateful! I was so spoiled with love!
I'm a huge fan of ALL holidays, but these are some of our favorites to celebrate with Mia! She just makes them SO exciting and fun again :) Now, I'm off to make Valentines with Mia... there's always time for crafting even though I should be packing instead, right?!
