happy first birthday, small fry!

We can hardly believe this weekend marks our one year anniversary here at Small Fry!

Are you guys ready for a party? We’ve got one in store for the next week!


We had Small Fry as a goal for a month or so before we launched, and didn’t tell a soul. Each of us spent hours toiling over every last detail, details that you’ll see on our very first post, to our very last, every feature, every button, every element, concept, and idea was crafted with care.  It was this same time of night (or early morning) that we hit “send” and surprised our friends and family with an email introducing our little baby blog. What a year it has been! We’ve made so many wonderful friendships, been touched by so many stories, and most importantly, and our very first priority, had an absolute blast with our six boys.


All next week we’ll be celebrating this milestone, and we hope you’ll join us! Small Fry is just pictures and words on a page without you here with us after all, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts.


Here’s to a hundred more!bday4

    It’s a while after the fact, but I’m so happy for you ladies! You’ve done such incredible things with this little space and are a huge inspiration to so many fabulous moms. Wish we could have gotten to know each other better before we left the Beehive State. Congrats!
