Carpe Diem

It's my motto of the day. I've walked, watered, and gotten a French pedicure. I'm sitting outside at a table at Panera's, eating a Chic-fil-A chicken burrito, and drinking my bottle of water from home. Yeah, I know, I'm being one of those people. I'm the only one outside. It's hot, but I'm in the shade and in 20 minutes I'll be in the air-conditioning for 8 hours of non-stop work. I'm loving the heat. I'm seizing the day.

I woke up to a trail of paper hearts, leading down to the kitchen table, where I found my birthday cards neatly arranged and the table decorated with streamers and a card and present from Emily. It did my heart good.

Happy Friday, friends.

Happy Birthday! How cool - yesterday was mine! I hope you had a wonderful day. I love Emily's heart trail - what a sweet idea.

Your day yesterday looks like it was heaven. I love that cottage - so cute. In the picture where you don't have on your glasses, you look just like Emily. I thought it was her at first.

Happy Birthday, dear one.
