I apologize for my recent neglect of this space; we had a lovely Father’s Day weekend and have been stocking up on family time since harvest ended. Coming Attractions: I have posts planned to update you on what has been happening on the farm, as well as a crunchy hair and product update.
Yesterday was my thirty-firth birthday. I must tell you, it was the best birthday I have ever had (with the possible exception of my sixteenth, but that is like comparing apples and oranges). All my young friends: Be not afraid of your thirties. They are magnificent.
I discovered this terrifically fun link-up last week through Sellabitmum (hilarious and gripping by turns; read her) – it’s over at The Pleated Poppy and it’s called “What I Wore Wednesday.” I’m linking up today with my birthday date outfit.
My entire outfit came off the clearance rack at Kohls and cost less than $50 total.
Shirt – Candy’s
Jeans – Mudd
Belt – Relic
Shoes – Dana Buchman
I was also carrying a cute metallic choral bag (Vera Wang) but forgot to hold it for the picture.
I included a new accessory – birthday present from my sister!
I thought the kids might feel left out if we went out on my birthday, but My Farmer had planned ahead and pinned down their favorite sitters (they are sisters and not only do they play with the kids, they also clean the kitchen) so they were thrilled. They practically pushed me out the doorway. We went to our favorite romantic date place. Ironically, the first time we ever went there was my thirtieth birthday, the first time we went out alone to celebrate when the kids were little and we have loved it ever since. An example of why:
We had a great date – the only sad moment of my birthday this year was when it was over.
