we all have our rituals....

good morning loves...

ok without further adieu or fanfare....I have to get something out in the open. my birthday, I know many of you were confused as it appears that my bubs and I were celebrating last week.

You see once a girl reaches a certain age (we'll just call this the third anniversary of my 29th birthday) the birthday celebrations tend to come with a whole lot of me saying "Do I look old", "Should I dye my hair", "Am I as pretty now as I was when I was 16"

So, bubs and I usually celebrate and unbirthday of sorts, where I get presents, then I get a present a day leading up to the actual date...they are small presents but presents nonetheless....the celebratory week ends with the giving of the birthday card....then, we're done.

Even when I was little I celebrated my birthday for a week (pleasure of being an only child) My father would take vacation that week every year and we would go on little day trips, to Canobie Lake Park, Benson's Animal Farm (yes....of Petite Heights Fame), The beach, and my most favorite thing ever, we would take a bpat out to the Isles of Shoales of the coast of NH.

(some of you may know the Shoales from living there, others because they were made famous in the mediocre movie "The Weight of Water", which was based on the AMAZING book by Anita Shreve.

This year we were low key, as we are STILL unpacking and adjusting, also the new house has come with a ton more expenses, so we have been laying low.

I did wake up and eat a piece of cake and some ice cream for breakfast...I know, I'm a big fattie, but let's face facts, a girl does not celebrate the 3rd anniversary of her 29th birthday every day now, right???

so with that I will bid you adieu.

Oh and in honor of my birthday any order today will get a bonus gift!!! Woo Hoo!!!

Photos today are of my (already messy) work table with a large piece I have been working on for days and days...It may make its appearance in my shop later today!!

Happy Birthday!! You are the hottest 29 + 3 year old I know. Have some more cake and ice cream for dinner, you deserve it. Th new piece looks amazingly big and gorgeous, I can't wait to see it up in the shop.

P.S. I am ecstatic you get ANTM now because the new "cycle" starts in a few weeks and you will be able to snark in on all the fun. Hooray for the new house!

You look goooorrrrrrgeous! Don't get hung up on the number just because it has a *gasp* 3 in it! Happy birthday!

I'm not saying anything about you know who being born because I don't want to jinx anything.

Wait, did someone just wish you a happy 38th?? I am giggling hysterically. I am sorry, I am having the same birthday as you in a few months, and I might keel over if someone said happy 38th hehehehehehe. Simple mistake.. ;)

At least it is only the anniversayr of your 29th. And, I have to tell you, Mr. Lovee says, there are some women who get more beautiful with age. I think he means you for sure!!! xoxoxoxo

Fine wine ring a bell? I know, cheesy but true... xoxo

Happy 3rd anniversary of your 29th birthday a day late, Jenn!

And I'm SO glad to hear I'm not the only one that likes to make it a "birthweek".

I am 30, by the way, and refer to it as 29 + 1.
