My Birthday

Me birth daaaay

Good day everyone, today is my 47th birthday. I am going to take a week off and play. But I had to share my new vintage hat I got at the Christmas House. It was a steal I could not say no too. I am thinking of wearing it to a evening wedding I was invited to. With a simple linen dress, do you think it is too much (or I am toooo old) ???

I hope you have a lovely week with magical days filled with yummy things. I will be back to share all my birthday goodies and an amazing mango rum slush recipe (you will swear you are on some tropical island, feeling the cool waves ;-) xoxoxox

Happy Belated Birthday! You look lovely! I hope you are having a FABULOUS week!


Oh you are darling! If you wear those flowers you will only make the event more of a celebration- it's exactly what to wear. I can't wait to see pictures!
Thanks so much for sharing so much of yourself with such candor.If we can't be ourselves by this age, then when? You are just a tad younger than I am, and your radiance and honesty- and sweetness exude from the words that describe your world, and make me feel better about myself somehow.


Happy Birthday! That hat looks splendid on you, it doesn't hurt you look so young.
