photobooth friday

photobooth friday

today I am 39. clearly, my hat is enormous. but after 39 years of living, I think I've earned the right to wear this sort of hat. today I'm going to bake the red velvet cake. I'm going to make a new list. and I'm going to go roller skating.

  13. You look adorable. Happy Birthday.

    My birthday (43!) was last week, but funnily enough today I posted a self-portrait too. And in a couple of weeks when I get my skateboard for Christmas, I'll see you out there on your roller skates.

    (Your red velvet cake looks delish, I think two bottles of food colouring is absolutely appropriate, and I too have old stained recipe cards that bring make memories every time they emerge).

    Enjoy your day!

  38. Happy Birthday!

    My first visit to your site (came from Mati Rose), and what a great image to land on. That smile of yours is like sunshine.

    My 39th is next week, so this made me particularly happy. Hope it was a wonderful day—with a whole year of them to follow.

    Thanks!

  55. Love this! I think I need to join in on the list again this year too. I think it'll be the third year of copying you! Happy birthday. Don't be sad about 40, just be glad that you feel and are so much younger at this age than you probably ever imagined you would be.
