The Goal: to take and post at least one picture each day for the entire year that I'm 27.

I find that I rush through the day, to rush through the week, to get to the weekend...just to find that an entire year goes by in the blink of an eye. So, on the eve of my last day as a 26 year old I decided to make a change. I challenged myself to take the time each day and find at least one moment worth remembering, hoping that in this way I will learn to live each day for what it is. For regardless of how uniform the days may feel at a glace each one is truly unique and worth cherishing.

Day 318 - Still Spinning

So back to Myk's early bird birthday...

First if you haven't seen it already, please look up The Creep video by Lonely Island (so good!)
We were so obsessed after seeing it that we were "creeping" Myk's entire birthday

The real creeps...

Us doing our own creeping

Next up...I posed Myk for a birthday photo shoot (yes, she loved it!)


Next up, throwing blueberries into each other's mouth (while mom was getting ready)
(Haha, we really are little birds aren't we)

We tried to get everyone to bring their birthday crowns to Myk's birthday because she was the last one
In our year long crown extravaganza...bad news was mom's and Kipp's crown didn't make it

Thank you Mykaela for making such a fun tradition...I can't wait to see what you do for the next birthdays!
(And here's me hogging the birthday limelight as always!)

Oh and you know you're a real birthday queen when you get both cake and cupcakes for your birthday

And let's not forget presents...Myk got some of those too

That's right...she now owns Toms! Our little hippie is now a hipster!!!

Best part of the night: The cupcake tree (and no, she is not turning 52 years old)
After lighting all of the cupcakes Myk thought she would give the tree a spin to help her blow out the candles

Well turns out her little spin wasn't so little...she sent that thing flying...along with all of the cupcakes

Yeah that's Myk's "cake" all over the floor...
Good thing the top tiers stayed in place and we actually got to eat some

Oh and you know what's weird...if you spin the cupcake tree and take a picture
The "25" always shows up facing the right way...crazy!

So that's Myk's early birthday...she came, she saw, she conquered
Love you my little bird bones, hippie, hipster, Mykie-Mykers!

  1. This is great, Summer! I have had the image in my head all day of her spinning that cupcake tree like she was on "Wheel of Fortune" and flaming cupcakes flying everywhere and I just about die laughing everytime I think about it. You got everything!!! I love that you captured it all. Thanks!! (also I should mention that I have been singing, "Now back to the good part....This is the tale, of Captain Jack Sparrow....." Make it stop!!!!
