Hello, Friends. Welcome to my new blog!
At my house, a big part of parenting involves Celebrations — and everything that falls under a celebratory banner. Holidays like Valentine’s and Halloween. Special days like the First Day of School or your son’s Piano Recital. Birthdays. Baby showers. Family gatherings. And on and on and on.
So I jumped at the chance to write a column centered on celebrating all the moments, both big and small, that make life grand! There are so many incredible ideas and inspirations available. I’m really looking forward to finding the best of the best and sharing them with you right here.
I hope that this space will motivate you, or at least give you an excuse, to gather together your friends and loved ones and make memories that will be a bright spot in your family narrative.
As a nod to my current country of residence (I love where I live!), I thought it might be fun to kick off this column by highlighting the most darling “Red Balloon” themed first birthday party celebration I’ve ever seen. Click through to see the French flavored party and all the details that make it stand out.
P.S. — Have your kids ever watched The Red Balloon? Have you?
