We are so blessed to have close friends here in Alaska that celebrate with us. It certainly helps us feel a little less far away from our families.
I'm only sad because now that A is one, there aren't any more first holidays. I know we still have lots of firsts ahead, but sad we no longer get to experience his initial reaction to new holidays. He's experienced them all now. What a silly reason to be sad; I know! Yet here I am.
I can't thank our friends and family enough for loving on my sweet boy on his birthday, and every day this past year. We are so grateful God has surrounded us with such loving people. And that, dear friends, is something to be cheery about. So cheers to you: thanks for joining us for the journey.
So much cake can be intimidating!
