i just love the idea of pulling it out for special occasions.

an update of my life, lately. hope you're having a lovely weekend. we have in-laws in town for the big bike race today. which means i have a stocked fridge and the fluffy guest towels are out. we're baking a birthday cake (chocolate sour cream cake to be precise) and generally enjoying the sounds of summer. with all the pencils and crayons out on display, i am getting excited for the back-to-school season. tune in monday, i need your advice on how to amp up my writing skills.

Adorable and nostalgic for me. I used to wear barrettes made in the exact same way when I was a little girl.

have become a huge fan of your blog! you are my first stop when i take time to enjoy the pleasure of blog-hopping!

best family tradition on birthdays is to retell the story of our kid's births - both adopted, it is a wonderful time to reflect on the selfless act of their amazing birthmothers.

i love having a "special" plate (ours is red w/ hearts) that is brought out on bdays or other special occasions (like someone's baptism or something).

also i love going out to breakfast on our birthdays -- it's one of our family traditions. i think it's more fun/special than going out for lunch or dinner (which we do more often).

happy weekend!
i just packaged up your order, btw :)

We never had huge birthdays growing up. My mom did make these button pins (you know like the big campaign ones) that said things like, "It's my birthday!"
But I am planning on making birthdays a big deal in our house - decorations, food, the whole 9 yards - no 10!
