20.9.10

I am writing this post Sunday night and it's my birthday tonight so I have to make this ultra quick! In case you really wanted to know, this was generally what I wore while I was camping the past four days. I think you can bet that I was wearing this hat and these boots, and the stuff in between was pretty much inconsequential.  I have a very sweet hand-full of people I need to write and thank on Monday morning, but right now I just need to shower and hit the hay (OR MY LOVE MUFFIN OF A FLUFFY WARM BED FINALLY!!) Naw, I actually slept pretty good and was surrounded by excellent company, ate great food, drank good drinks, paid no heed to the clock, laid around and marveled at the warmth. It was an IDEAL break.  And now I am 31.  Time to get to business. I don't know if I have ever said it here, but every year I get older I am happier.  I really don't anticipate that changing either. I feel like I am finally growing into myself each year. Ah, I am rambling.  Sleep time.

If you would like a bit more content though, the very lovely Katy from Modly Chic asked me some interview questions a little bit ago and they are different from any of the others I have answered so far. She asks the same ones to a different blogger each Monday as part of her Monday Profiles feature. You can read my answers to the following questions by clicking here.

What would you say is the hardest part about blogging?
What is your one golden piece of shopping advice?
What is the most rewarding part? 
If you had to pick one mantra for life, what would yours be?
What are your favorite items in your closet?
In your opinion, every woman should own:
A woman's most beautiful feature is her: 
Where do you see your blog in 5 years? 
What in your wardrobe could you not stand to part with, ever?

That is such a good way to think about getting older. Although I have a little freak out before each birthday I really shouldn't as I'm the same and feel that I'm getting happier and more comfortable in myself each year. So thanks for the reminder- hopefully I can avoid the freak out this year.

I'm glad you had a good trip and happy birthday! xx

Melissa said...

Happy, happy birthday! So glad you had a good time.

Welcome home! :)

Happy late birthday my dear! I hope it was a good one (sounds like it) I would love to camp for my birthday with friends. I love sleeping under the stars.

If your blog is only gonna last 18 months, I hope we can still stay in touch in 6 months :)

I love how comfortable yet stylish you look. I'm a big camping fan as well & can only hope to look this put-together while roughing it.

Happy b-day!

Happy Birthday!!!

I always used to be scared of getting older, but, funnily enough, reading blogs, especially of those people who are past studying and are uh, 'proper adults', just makes me excited and now I just want to skip those in between years. Kinda!

Corie said...

Well Happy Birthday to you!

Cat said...

Happy Birthday! It is amazing how glorious a long, hot shower (in the comfort of your own home) feel after a few nights of camping :) xo Cat

Terri said...

happy birthday. If you get happier every year, by the time you are my age, you will be ecstatic!

miha, skinny buddha said...

Happy Birthday. I wish you all the best, you are such an inspiration :)

KT said...

Thanks again for answering the questions. And happy birthday! Glad to hear you had a wonderful weekend. And I'm totally with you - each year gets better. - Katy

amanda said...

happy birthday! you give me hope. in just over a week i'm going to find out just how i like getting older. but you look fabulous, are encouraging, and healthy and fit, so it gives me hope for myself :)

Beautifully Invisible said...

Happy birthday! I really enjoyed reading your responses on Katy's blog - especially the one about missing human contact. You are so right - it's so easy to get "lost' behind the monitor, but that can never replace REAL human interaction.

Swalvs said...

You look very beautiful and comfortable, I'm happy you had some nice, relaxed days and a good birthday! You deserve the best! and I've given you an award... Here: http://swalvs-vesaire.blogspot.com/2010/09/happy-end-of-summer-and-sunshine-blog.html

You know, I feel the same as you:

1. about camping: hat, boots, stuff in between inconsequential.

2. getting older. Me too! I was just thinking this exact same thing the other day! How every year older I get the more me I feel!

Also, adore this outfit. You are chic no matter what you do.

ps: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
