The month of May already seems like a lifetime ago, but I only just now had a chance to go through the images from the joint birthday party Jack had with his dear friend Izzy. Her favorite color is pink, Jack's is red. They both love airplanes, which is not at all surprising given their fathers' occupations. Armed with these details and a whole lot of talent, Izzy's mom Amber whipped up the most darling airplane birthday party you ever did see. (You're not even seeing the half of it here.) She hand folded over one hundred paper airplanes and made (and packaged and hand labelled) the bulk of the food for the party. She hung paper lanterns and blew up beach balls and rearranged the furniture inside and out. She had a vision, and well, it rocked.
Ah, I miss Amber. She has a killer sense of style and knows how to shop like nobody's business. Throughout our time together in Virginia she'd send me a text about a sale I couldn't miss, or a pair of jeans or a bookshelf that I absolutely had to buy. She loves to bake and would often swing by with a (perfectly packaged) sample of her latest creation. She often showed up to play dates with my favorite coffee in hand. In short: everybody should have an Amber in their life.
Amber has talked of setting up a party-planning shop, and if she hasn't already, we'd love to be her first customer -- Dylan has already requested an airplane party for his birthday in January!
