What I Wore: Shirt (Popbasic), Jeans (Gap), Shoes (Modcloth), Hat (Similar Here), Scarf (Similar Here), Belt (Similar Here), Bracelet (Popbasic; Similar Here)Downsides to being born on Labor Day Weekend: No one was around to go to your birthday party as a kid. Not even if it was princess themed. It is you and dad (such a good sport) in Princess birthday hats. Also- it is so early in the school year, you are never clear on the cupcake rule. Can you bring them?
Upsides though are... pretty much everything else. Yor birthday is a three day weekend. Or, rather- to cut the second person narrative here- my birthday is. And my sweet Boy insisted we celebrate it all weekend. Mostly, things were fairly low key- they were things we might do any weekend, but all in a single weekend together. So Saturday we hit the Big City where the overcast weather was made to seem atmospheric because we were sipping on hot chocolates in a cafe. This is what I wore. A bit Diane Keaton feeling, I think. Perfect for what filled much of the rest of the day- strolling through the Farmers' Market (with the dogs! Max was a little overstimulated with all the different food smells but they did well), and book-browsing.
The next day was even better thanks to all my incredibly thoughtful friends becoming partners-in-crime with The Boy to bring about surprises- surprise packages appearing out of nowhere and surprise visitors! All your thoughtfulness (yes, you. This is no second-person narrative this time) made my 29th birthday one of the very best I've had. Thank you for that <3
