I’m starting to get a little excited because… it’s less than a week until my birthday! Yaaay! December 3 – mark it in your dairies.
There are few things in life I adore more than a good celebration. This year I’m so looking forward to enjoying dinner with my family and close friends. My mom is making a cake, but I still need to decide on what type (if you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them!)
From when we were really little, my sister and I always did Birthday and Christmas Wish Lists. We would have such fun creating these super pretty pieces of paper with drawings of things we loved. And although I’m obviously no longer five, it’s a tradition that has continued (except the once carefully constructed Crayola diagrams have now been replaced with slick PDF documents and website links!)
I thought I’d share with you my Wish List for this year (however, I always have a disclaimer that they’re just suggestions and I’d be so grateful and appreciative of whatever someone was sweet enough to give me!)
Yes – it’s a big year for perfumes! I just love fragrance, it’s amazing how a scent can instantly remind you of someone or something. I’ve always had a lovely collection (when I was younger my Dad would buy my sister and I little bottles of perfume), but it seems my favorites all ran out over the last few months!
The Shoe Calendar is also much loved, I’m lucky enough to have been given the new version every year (for the last six years!) and I always keep it on my desk at work. It’s become a bit of a tradition that the girls come into my office each morning and see what the shoe is – if it’s cute, it means it’s going to be a great day! (Somehow they always end up being a little bit ugly on your birthday, so in that case we decided the uglier the shoe, the better the birthday!) I also linked this up to Tell Me About It Tuesday, Monday Meet Up and Random Wednesday, weekly link-up’s to share anything and everything!
So, tell me … what’s been the best birthday gift you have ever given or received?
