How to Make an Impact with an Invitation

My organization, Bulldog Solutions, prides itself with hosting a bang-up annual party in Austin during the month of October and amazingly enough our next event is just around the corner.

Gabby and Mark's Baby Shower

My dear friends Gabby and Mark are expecting their first child later this month. Fingers crossed that it will land on my birthday, which is also their niece Danielle's birthday.

Gabby was showered in gifts from family and friends. Beautiful gifts for a beautiful little girl that's certain to find herself amidst abounding love.

Congratulations Gabby and Mark!

My first

How could I keep from posting such a cute face?!

General in a cute little bow - hoping that daddy won't cut the fur away from his face and make a mess. It was General's first bow!

Immediately afterwards he crashed. It was 10:00 pm. He always crashes at 10:00 pm. You can set your watch by him.
