Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

colorful birthday party idea board Holden's first birthday is just a few months away (ack!), so I've begun thinking about her party details (oh, who am I kidding? I've been pinning things since she was 3 months old!).

I'm not one to adhere too strongly to a "theme," so rather than saying we're having a Rainbow Birthday Party, I'll say we're going with a colorful party in general, since Holdy has brought such color and joy to our lives.

Also, how tough is it to create a manageable invite list? Our first list was almost 60 people long! Mr. B put his foot down and made me prune the list to a (reasonable?) 25 people: close family and some friends. I can't wait to celebrate one year with our little girl!
