Celebrations and Smash Cakes
I love celebrations. Life is too short to not appreciate the little moments, which is why I've been known to break out a bottle of champagne and some sparklers just to celebrate Friday night! So, if that's my attitude towards weekends, you can imagine how excited I was to get together with some friends to celebrate their little boy's first 365 days on the earth.
Kruz woke up from a nap to find his home was full of people. It only took a few moments and some puffy Cheetos before he was on board to celebrate.
Maybe it is because I don't have kids of my own yet, but I had no idea that "smash cakes" had become a thing. Apparently there are bakeries that specialize in smash cakes? I guess the idea has been around for a long time-- I have a photo of myself as a baby covered in frosting and crumbs in my highchair-- but I had no idea it was now part of the million-dollar baby industry! Mama Mika-- who is a super talented/crafty type-- made her own smash cake, and it was adorable.
And of course, the moment everyone was waiting for: Smash Cake!
(For future reference: blue and green frosting is the perfect super-messy-looking color combo.)
