Lula’s 3rd Birthday Party + Farewell

mexicanparty_1lowres

I had this post ready about 3 moths ago but I didn’t find the time to publish it and not having internet in our home here in Sayulita doesn’t help! So here you go, better late than never!

After 8 years in San Francisco, a new chapter in our life started with a 6 months break in Sayulita. We finally made the move to Mexico after falling in love with Sayulita a couple years ago. Here we are getting inspired and working on new projects (while Lula goes to school), learning Spanish, explore Mexico and finally getting ready for our move to Los Angeles in the Spring.

Just a couple weeks before we left San Francisco, we had all our friends and Lula’s come over for a little Mexican Fiesta in our backyard celebrating her 3rd birthday and saying goodbye. We had a wonderful time and it reminded me how lucky we are to have met all these beautiful and talented people and we miss them a lot! But of course we expect to see them all again, if not in Sayulita, maybe in LA!

Some super cute cookies I had made by xo bakes! A big success with the kids.

I made this paper cow skull (now in the shop!), a paper cactus I recycled from an old styling project and some paper tissue fans I picked up at my friend’s Oh Happy Day shop. The paper flowers are from a Mexican shop in our neighborhood.

It’s been a long time since I posted anything on my blog. A lot has happened since October including our move to Sayulita, Mexico for 6 months! I have a lot of photos to share from our incredible life here but first: Anouk’s birthday! About a month and half after our arrival, November 19th to be exact, we celebrated the 1st birthday of our precious girl Anouk! Here are some photos of the party. I had a lot of fun making this giant pinata version of my paper flamingo!

Not a party without balloons!

It was a really fun day, really really hot too! So the girl had to escape from the sun for a little moment to enjoy some popsicles inside! Anouk too! I think she got a little taste of all of them.

Lula is 2!

lulais2_5

How did that happen? How can she be 2 already?! I feel like we celebrated her first birthday yesterday…

We celebrated with the family in France where we spent our summer (a month ago already, she turned 2 on august 17th). My parents had bought two little strawberry plants for when we arrived to surprise Lula, everyday she went to pick the red ones, tried to eat the green ones too, she would eat them all if we didn’t stop her, she loves strawberries so much! So I thought a strawberry theme for her birthday would be fun. I made a pinata that I filled up with all her favorite things: stickers, little dolls, jewelries, candies… and confettis!

She’s had her first candies when we were in France and ice-cream and chocolate almost everyday thanks to her grand-parents! She knows the words for these really well now and keep asking for some since we got back! But the vacations are over…
