Next week Princess A is going on her first plane ride. I am so nervous about it which is odd considering I named her after a famous pilot. Despite my fears of dealing with a crying baby on a plane for six hours I am doing it because I want her godfathers to see her as a baby. Last time they saw her she was only 3 months old and didn’t have as much personality.

Anyway now that it is 2012 I have started to think about Princess A’s first birthday! Of course I will through her a fabulous party and she will get tons of gifts. But I also want to giver her a more unique gift that she can enjoy when she is older.

So I was thinking that it would be awesome if I could make her a scrap-book of postcards from people all around the world wishing her Happy Birthday. If you could help me out I would really appreciate it! So if you have the time send a Happy Birthday postcard to the following address.

Princess A

1636 Third Avenue

Penthouse #361

New York, NY 10128

And who knows?… maybe your postcard will appear on my blog!

Stay Glamorous,

    YAY! I love sending cards. Would you like a ‘proper’ birthday card or scenery postcard of my little rock (country) in the middle of nowhere? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Please don’t be nervous about flying. Cute idea that I’ve used is to take some ear plugs with me and offer them out when Lily gets cranky. Most of the time I just get lots of laughs and sympathy. Take enough diapers for a whole day, some new toys and books, an extra set of clothes for both of you, a few snacks (bribing with snacks works wonders), her beverage of choice and if you’re flying economy, ask for bulk head seating so you can ask for a bassinet.

    Cute idea about postcards. I’ll go on a search for something cute.

      Thanks Mandy! Some people were nice others weren’t. Then I gave her cups and she had so much fun!

        Could you tell me Princess A’s exact birthday? I’d like to know because Lillian will turn 2 soon. Maybe they share the date?!
