I want to thank all you dear hearts for the birthday wishes and magic you sent my way yesterday; I can't tell you how happy they made me.
Birthday cards have always been my favorite. You can keep them forever, tucked away in your diary so that you can remember the nicest moments when you were very happy (indeed!), even in a million years, when perhaps you might be very sad, and you might need something to remind yourself of a time when you were quite loved.
Also, I suppose birthdays are nice because you are entitled to wish upon your deepest and most secret wishes, and maybe have some hope in your little heart that they might actually come true. And, it's easier to believe this when you are dressed in your most special-est birthday dress with tiny pink roses on it ♥
Oh, and today I am very very happy because I have purchased my first print from the amazing Caitlin Shearer, and I absolutely can't wait to purchase more. I want to cover my whole house in them, Richie Tenenbaum style.
