Perched in my new favorite spot (the windowsill overlooking flowers and concrete), I looked over at Ruggy, arms outstretched, and sang Do you know what day it is???
Yes, he said, it's August 1st and the start of your birthday week. You're beeauuuuuuuuutiful and I looooooooove you he crooned back, as he strode over to give me a hug and a kiss, and a fresh pour of coffee.
Best start to a birthday week ever.
Just popping in to say your oonapalooza makes are making me equally as happy!!! I'll be doing a roundup post on Monday, so if you're not on my 'palooza pinterest board, it means I haven't found you, or you're only on flickr and I can't pin you (also, some flickr photos aren't tagged "oonapalooza" and I don't want to assume everyone in the group is sewing pour moi. That would be supremely bratty and totally out of character; see above story). Please holler at me if I've missed you, here or via email if you'd like to send a photo! And jump on over to the Sewcialists for their roundups and this month's theme: sharing the spotlight, with a tribute to the inspiring blogger of your choice. WONDERFUL. I have about 10 posts ready for that before the month has even begun....
***eta: thank you for the lovely birthday wishes, everyone!!***
