bee party

The BEE PARTY turns 1!
A year ago, I decided to open up my blog and start a weekly link-up and the BEE PARTY was born. 
It has been a great year and I want to thank all of you for helping this party grow. I have enjoyed all your creativity and feel so blessed to have been a part of each week.
As most of you know, we have 6 beautiful, active children; the oldest is in high school, and the youngest is preschool age. They are my joy and fill my days. We are in the best and busiest time of our life, and I have found the need to simplify my schedule. I am so sad to inform you all that I have decided to discontinue the BEE PARTY for now, to more fully focus on my family. They are only young once, and I don't want to miss it!

So, thank you, I will miss our weekly meet-ups.

Of course, I want to share the final features from last week's party, I hope you enjoy!
