5 years ago...

Five summers ago, when I was moving to Korea, Ruby was very pregnant with Brave and super emotional about everything. I was expecting a few tears when it was time to say our goodbye's, but the fact that she was pregnant made it a gazillion times crazier than I imagined! We sobbed and wailed as poor Ben and John watched us become weirdos.  Calling it a sobfest would be the understatement of the century.

Not too long after I moved, I got a call in the wee hours of the night that the bff was going into labor! Super excited, but super sad that I couldn't be there to meet baby #2.  I got a lot of pictures emailed and saw tons on the blog, but wasn't the same as going to the hospital and holding a newborn! I made sure my sister and Johnny went to meet her and hold her on my behalf, but again, not the same!

Four months later, I finally met teenie tiny, bald Brave. Cutest, sweetest thing ever. Oh my, time flies!


Sweet little Bravery just celebrated her 5th birthday this weekend with another amazing cakies party production. (See some instagrams of the party here).  Every time Brave's birthday rolls around, I'm reminded of the craziness that ensued as her momma and I said bye that summer day.

Happy birthday, Bravery. Thanks BFF and BFF hubz for letting me (s)mother your Bravery. I love being her auntie/mochi lady!
