oh boy…

Yep, it’s my birthday… the last one in my 30’s – um, when did that happen?! Anywho, I have always loved my birthday, and today is no exception! I thought I’d share a few of my favorite images from my “random lovely things” pinboard … because, quite frankly, most of them sort of scream birthday! Ok, here we go:

Thanks for being part of my special day… I’m going to spend the rest of the day riding my new pink bike with my lovely husband, and eating chocolate cake. A lot. See you tomorrow!

    happy birthday! (I’m through the other side – gazing with envy at a number beginning with ‘3’ and – it’s fine!) love the squirrel painting: yesterday I saw my first sleeping squirrel, taking a happy hour long snooze on a branch 20 ft in the air.

    I turned 39 in March. I still can’t believe how quickly my 30’s have passed – with each year time seems to speed up. It is a bit nerve-wracking to be facing 40, but for years (especially in my 20’s) I thought I would rather turn 40 than 30. I figured that by 40 I would be settled and not so plagued by stresses about what I was going to be when I “grew up”. That hasn’t exactly been the case. However, 1973 people rock! It’s funny that we have similar tastes and interests (and jealousies about the amazing work other people are producing). I’ve been following this blog via bloglovin.com since I signed up for that site about 6 months ago. Thank you for posting so much interesting work that I might not have discovered otherwise – you do a great job! Have a Happy Birthday!
