Birthday wishes coming true.

I truly had the most enjoyable birthday, and I couldn't be more thrilled with all of the beautiful cards and thoughtful gifts I received this year. Would you care to see them? Then keep on reading, dear friends, and prepare yourself for a rather lengthy post! :)

I opened my mailbox a couple days ago, and I found the loveliest surprise: Anthropologie sent their kindest birthday wishes, as well as the most delightful little gift!


What you see above is a 15% discount card for the month of August, as well as a candle necklace that they so cleverly adorned atop of their adorable little cupcake. I don't think that getting mail could have been any more exciting than this! And to top it off, my father came home with some special items bought from Anthropologie (a.k.a. my favorite store on earth): a smart pair of jeans, as well as this gorgeous dress!


The very same day, I received a package in the mail from my very best friend Dorothy! She got me the loveliest little bracelet from Fleur Avenue, and she's such a dear, because she knows how much I adore Paris, let alone anything and everything French. Isn't it just the prettiest little adornment?


And Jake was such a dear for throwing me a party, and he surprised me with a beautiful pot of orchids! They are so very lovely, and they make me smile every single day. :)


And just when I think things can't get any better, my bicycle finally arrived from UPS! With the help of Jake and his professional bicyclist of a father, I now own the cutest bicycle in town. I don't know what I would have done without them; the instructions were simply impossible to follow. Of course, I did have to promise to take Jake out to ice cream.. :)


I don't think I could be any happier right now. I have beautiful friends, with beautiful hearts, and the summer sun just seems to make everything that much better. :)

PS. These pictures were all taken by me, as I'm trying to experiment with photography and whatnot. I've been so inspired by all of the amazing photography in the blogging world; I thought I would give it a shot even though I know I simply cannot compare. Of course, I'd love to hear your comments and feedback! :)

yes! i did! i'm sorry i didn't tell you but i am waiting for the chance to purchase more stamps...i ran out!!! and i think you are tad bit mad when you said sorry for the messy hand writing!!!! because i was examining it for like 10 minutes to figure out if it was a printed font or not...seriously!!!!! did you take a calligraphy class or do you just have freakishly amazing hand writing?! haha

Michelle Elisabeth said...

your photography is lovely! Like anything else, it just requires practice, paying attention to the light source (and adjusting your angle accordingly), and more practice!

Those are very nice pictures! I remember getting my first bike for college. It was very exciting, however my cruiser quickly got dirty after a few months on campus. Yours is the cutest cruiser I've seen!

Abby said...

Happy birthday! And I think your photography is great! Seriously, it's really good right now, who knows how amazing it will be in a few months? I'm also trying to experiment with photography myself, inspired by everyone's beautiful photography.
