Ariella turns Eight!

One thing I know is that my kids LOVE their birthday! I have made a big deal about their birthday’s since they were 1 and they have become just as excited as I when it comes to celebrating it.

A little background about our home is we built it 2.5 years ago when we moved from our townhouse just a few blocks away. We were on a major budget and I could tell you of all the things I wanted but couldn’t have in this home. But when I think of where we came from I’m so grateful for what…

Adorable basket toy storage
