one day older.


portrait by jessica haderlie

today has been rainy and wet. a true fall day; with sweatshirts and soft socks to glide on the hardwood floors. we've had a day inside with cars and legos. whit and wren came, toting lunches to share and lots of chit chat to cheer me from any birthday blues. (i don't remember any birthdays without her!) soon i'm headed out on a hot date with dan. texts and fresh flowers have surprised me today. birthdays are different when you get older, but still just as sweet. benji woke up excited to tell me happy birthday! then immediately asked if i liked scooby doo. we could get you a scooby doo cake, he kindly suggested. to you readers who are so rad, thank you for being my online family. you've made my blogging years super happy.

p.s. my favorite birthday cake and a list of thirty.

Happiest birthday, you sweet mother of two. This picture of you and Seth is breathtaking; you just radiate with motherly glow.

People always tell me I look too young to be a mother, wife, or whatever, but you look exactly 31; both particularly wise and youthfully beautiful.

Lots of love. Enjoy your night out on the town!

Oh Marta..you are so darling. I have never seen you more pretty than these latest pics with your new darling baby. He is soooo cute with his strawberry blonde hair. And I am loving the idea of the ramekins for little cakes...I must try that!!

And thank you for your blog, I love digging through your archives, it always offers inspiration and has made me write so much more. I still remember the day I found your blog - I spent the entire afternoon (at work.hehe) going through your catalog...
