These flowers SCREAM birthday to me, and since I just celebrated my ‘forty-something’ b-day (hmmmm hmmmm) … I thought I’d put this color palette out for a little splash of birthday hues. BTW – this photo wasn’t manipulated at all! These flowers were actually the colors you see here. Not at all natural, I know, but I totally loved them. In my opinion, you’ve got to go all out on your birthday, and having a lot of color around you can only help make it even more fantastic!
For my special day I had an amazing time: I got to sit and do a little reading under my favorite tree, take a trip to my home-away-from-home beach in Carpinteria, spent time with friends and received some wonderful gifts (including homemade gluten-free chocolate truffles), got a whole bunch of awesome phone calls, texts, and fb messages, took a trip to Anthropologie for a little decadent shopping and another stop off at my favorite art supply store for some much needed goodies, dined on delicious home cooked meals by my husband, and to top it off went to my son’s high school football game where they had a stellar victory! Doesn’t get much better than that! I’m ready for another year! Bring it on! xoxo
