♥ my birthday isn't until March 7th but already the birthday mail love has made it's way to my doorstep! it feels like Christmas morning every time i get a pretty package. These are from the lovely Lauren Nicole (gift giving goddess) and sweet Alyssa. (i'll blog about the mail love in a different post) THANK YOU dearest friends with all my heart xoxo everything was perfectly me.
♥ speaking of birthdays, my brother Marco's birthday was on the 22nd. Last year, i asked a big favor from my heart. So many of you wonderful friends sent a birthday card/care package to him while he was serving a year long deployment (his third!) in Iraq. I can't tell you how much it still means to me.
I am thankful this year we didn't have to do that, and instead i sent him the above bows from love my boutique on etsy. They're for his little girl that him and his girlfriend Christina are expecting in June. The amazing part of the story is if it wasn't for that deployment in Iraq, my brother would never have met the love of his life.
♥ this is what i wore for my friend Manny's 80s themed birthday party. Remind me why the fanny pack went out of style? it was so convenient! especially when we danced all night.
♥ my friend sarah not only makes beautiful jewelry, she's also an artist. She gave me this pretty canvas with one of my favorite quotes (and truths) : this too shall pass.
♥ my cute new hot pink (with zebra print inside) luggage that i'm using to take home for my birthday trip. I CAN'T WAIT to see my family again!
♥ and because it's been awhile since i've indulged in one (and the weather has been amazing the past two days) i treated myself to a pedicure in OPI's "mermaid's tears" before meeting my girlfriend Candice for a lunch at Corner Bakery (i love their soup bowls!).
Happy Weekend Lovies! what happy things are you ending the week with?
(i can add this to the list-- ♥ my husband just asked to take me out on a date tonight)
+please leave a link below if you do post-- i'd love to share in your happiness xo
