It’s an amazing milestone ~ you all made it through the first year! Now it’s time to do some birthday party planning. Figuring out how you want to celebrate is the first step. Big party? A trip to the zoo with just you and your baby? Invite everyone who loves your baby? You’ve got options!

In this episode, I chat with Kim Morrison, who’s passionate about creating cozy, comfortable, inviting gatherings that celebrate life and relationship. Which I know is exactly what you want to do – celebrate that sweet little life.
