Happy 7th Birthday Amara

Yesterday Amara turned seven. Her Mommy has hated when people, mostly me, said that Amara was almost seven. She wants to keep her little as long as she can and I don’t blame her, she is growing up so fast. The time is just flying by. But now she is officially seven.

Happy Birthday Amara!

There is a big birthday bash planned for tomorrow (Saturday) and it will be held in the physical AmaraLand, AKA our backyard. This year the theme is fairies and Amara made me promise to do a post about it and include lots of pictures.

One of my birthday presents to Amara is the new look that AmaraLand has gotten. I have been working on it for her since January 14th and unlike the old look, she had a lot of input about how she wanted her blog to look! This has certainly been a labor of love and an incredible learning experience* — but mostly I’ve had fun! I’m a semi-geek and I love playing with Photoshop, doing this was the best of both. I wanted to get all of this done yesterday but between work and the Auto Club, that did not happen!

I had so much fun picking out pictures when I did the New Year’s Post that I wanted to add a new Photo section to AmaraLand. I’ve added a page for each month and each page has a picture for that month from each year. In going forward I will add my favorite new picture once a month.

Picking out all of those photos was hard! Trying to decide which one to use and trying to include ones I haven’t already used in a post somewhere… But it sure made me realize even more, how much wonderful time we get to spend with her and how much fun we are having. I can hardly wait for tomorrow’s big bash.

Happy Birthday Amara!

*I have to add that this new look would not have been possible if I hadn’t taken WordPress 3: Creating and Editing Custom Themes by Chris Coyier online at Lynda.com. I am in no way affiliated with them but I just have to tell anyone that is listening how great this course was!
