Sam turned 1 yesterday! He tore into a chocolate cupcake like an old pro. And he’ll get to do it again tomorrow at our low-key BBQ and pool party family celebration. Usually I’m too stressed organizing and corralling the kids to pay much attention to myself. Which I always regret when I see pictures. Ugh. Why do moms do this to ourselves?! But a simple maxi and flowy top is dressy and still lets me bend over to pick up a kid. Short shorts and mini skirts? Um, no. A bit of a metallic heel (God bless wedges) and coral – one of my favorite accent colors for summer – does the trick. Cheers to summer!
