birthday

Just a quick “it’s my birthday today” post. These are a few bits and pieces that I received from my parents and close friends. I spent today with a few of the girls, catching up over a big brunch and then heading to the Finders Keepers markets. Once we had exhausted the markets, we spent the rest of the afternoon outside in the makeshift beer garden, listening to bands and eating cupcakes. It was pretty much my idea of the perfect day. I took a disposable camera to the markets and will get the film developed this week. Only problem is that the camera expired two years ago, so I’m not entirely sure how the photos will turn out. Here’s hoping!

    @everyone: thanks for all the birthday wishes!

    @BejewelledDresser: It was a bit like that hey? There was so much going on in just one little area of the Valley! We powered on through the rain, even sitting on wet grass to enjoy the rest of the afternoon + cupcakes ahha.

    @AmyAntlers: next time they roll into town you should definitely check it out!

    @Hannah: Definitely! I wish they were on more often!

    @Abby: Yay for psychic blogger connections! hha (and yes, that is a Grace Kelly book – my friends know me too well!)

    @iamabimarvel: I've already have a quick flick through it and love it! Can't wait to read it from front to back.

    @heleen: Agreed about the flowers. I think I gave a little squeal when I saw them. People should give flowers more often, I say. To me especially haha.

    @everyone, again: thanks again for all the birthday wishes!

Your presents look wonderful! Chloe perfume, I want, I want! Daisy and Chloe are the two perfumes I want! Great birthday cards too!!! Aww I'm glad you had a good day! xoxo
