i love you :)
as the tradition goes... my snapshot on my last day as a happy 30 year old :)
still in my pj's
in mr. handsome's man cave ( such lovely light in there :)
fluttering about cleaning up the house for party people
thinking about going to starbucks...okay. wishing.but whatevs
missing family too far away to visit
wondering what 31 is going to bring?
new job? new little baby? new hobby? more exercising? more traveling? more celebrating? more decorating? crossing my fingers more cake and ice cream... for sure.
Here's my birthday cake... I kind of let the top of the cake box press down on the frosting and it ended up all over the box. But I knew it would taste amazing anyway. Mr. Handsome and I tried a new bakery for my cake this year. Very home made looking but absolutely delicious. Soft fluffy sweet frosting... vanilla cake with a fresh layer of strawberries in the middle... oh yeah. There were leftovers :) I saved you a piece! xo
I even blew out my candles... even though I'm such a weirdo and really don't like to eat cake others have blown out their candles on. Mr. Handsome bought the little firework kind... and they were so hard to blow out! I was cheered on by family and made a wish and blew out my little candles. and they all have my coodies now :) hahaa! gotcha.
I had been buying little random tea plates especially for this celebration. I knew I wanted to have my birthday cake served onto these dainty little plates. swoon :) Also, Mr.Handsome bought me pretty dahlia's and sunflowers for my birthday... I love that man. xoxo
And I used his awesome height to my advantage as he came in handy to help put up all the garlands and lanterns in our kitchen :) This pretty little garland ( now in my shop ) instantly added loveliness to our little set up. It's still up today. I think I will leave it up until the end of September :) So if you come over to my kitchen you will enjoy breakfast & dinner here in all it's garland glory xoxo
I wish you could come over and celebrate with me. Thank you for sharing some birthday cheer & stories! Happy happy sweet birthday to any and all who are celebrating a lovely birthday this month! May your heart burst with happiness & joy and your cup run over with peace & love.
