Since I'm from the Chicago area we are spending an additional week and making this a big family vacation with lots of aunts, uncles, cousins and one wonderful grandma! On August 10th, Tessa will be celebrating her second - SECOND! - birthday in Chicago surround by family. While this makes me ridiculously happy even thinking about it I also know I will be trying pretty hard not to cry the whole time. Besides inherently being a big old sentimental goofball I just can't wrap my head around how fast this last year has flown by. On top of Tessa turning two on August 10th, on September 1st it will be one year to the day since we held our beautiful daughter in our arms for the very first time. One. Year. Truly where did the last 12 months go?!
I promise to post lots of photos from BU09 once we're back and share some of the Tessa birthday magic!!
