The past 12 months have been an absolute whirlwind of a ride but watching our little one grow from a tiny, helpless newborn to a sassy and independent toddler has been absolutely magical! Of course, as any mother with a serious Pinterest addiction would, we had to celebrate the occasion with an over the top cake smash… After quite a bit of diliberating, I decided to make the cake and do the photography myself and I’m actually really glad we did that instead of going professional because the whole process of…

    Kitchen – during

    Well folks, we’re just about half-way there and so we thought we’d share some pictures of our space in it’s not so glamorous glory.
