"A year has gone by so quickly!"
"Where has my little baby gone?!"
"Who is this big kid who is pouring tea on my carpet and tearing pages out of my cookbooks, and who let him in the house?"
Somehow, the weather gods shined their light upon us and gave us the most beautiful day of the month with which to celebrate my son's birthday.
I had no idea if 25 or 125 people would be celebrating with us, and as it turns out, I was glad that we cooked for more!

After the sun set, the early fall air stayed warm, and everyone nursed their drinks, nibbled on cake, and laughed together in my parents' back garden. I took a few moments to take it all in - the glowing lights, the laughing voices of friends and family, my handsome boy in his traditional clothing looking so grown up already. Magic.
