Enjoy Your Extra Day!

I know I am going to make sure that I do! And I hope that you do too. This day only happens every four years. Any of you having a birthday? Also, February being over is a thing to celebrate at the very least.

Looking at these beautiful purchases and gifts that I received tonight makes me realize just how lucky I am. I'm lucky enough to have baby bibs that are so nice they will be passed down instead of tossed aside. Want your own? Check out her shop at Une Petite Etoile. She chooses such beautiful, soft and lush fabrics for little ones that I almost wish I was the baby and not the mom!

No moping. No dwelling. No time wasting, yet allowing myself to relax is important, a tricky balance for sure. No being overly emotional and sensitive. No being angry.

It is supposed to snow here in Boston that night so as long as the day is decent I will be out and about as much as possible. I have some stuff that I need to get shipped out ASAP but lately it hasn't taken much to get us out of the house.

Also, I did some gocco printing today (yay!) and will focus my art on cutting up some of those prints as well as other papers. I was pretty irritated by the Gocco and myself today as I was distracted and wasted four bulbs and those are not cheap. But I still have enough to hold me for awhile.

I'm also going to be sure to get in plenty of snuggles with my best girl. Now I am off to bed as it is past my bedtime and I have a big day tomorrow. See you there. mwah!

I can totally get behind celebrating the end of February. I'll be just as happy to celebrate the end of March, and get this spring thing started!

Yes, as a friend of mine said. March is fired! Spring can't come fast enough.

Happy birthday Ellen you unruly teenager you!

The goodies aren't all gifts but they feel like it! blee officially dressed better than I am!

I am enjoying the day so far but it is pretty cold for a walk. But if that is the only negative I will take it!
