Which somehow reminded me of this photo Maraka passed along from her daughter's 2nd birthday. I love the simple, sweet way that Charlotte was greeted for the day. Personally, I think as long as you make a child (or anyone, for that matter) feel special on their birthday, it doesn't really matter how much you spend or how much of a to-do is put together.
Also-thank you to Melodie for passing along a new cupcake place on the Nashville scene (with $1.50 cupcakes!). I can't wait to check it out!
