to all my friends and family,
yeah! i love this thing! first off, this will be a quick post because everyone's napping after a big long night of projects. bo was literally up all night putting together my wonderful amazing gorgeous book of cards (thank you everyone!). he just fell asleep at 215pm, and now orion is taking a nap too.
orion painted me a very original painting with his own hands and feet! (pics to come). all those cards were so sweet and i love all the words of memories, funny times we've had together, beautiful thoughts of strength, etc etc. i can't thank everyone enough.
bo also made me an apron from fabric we found months and months ago. it's a pretty black with teeny white polka dots with embroidered flowers on. he cut and sewed it (to my specs using his own body, pretending he had my hips and chest, hahahaha) and trimmed it with pink lace, and a little heart balloon sewn on. so cute! he also used that same fabric to line an iphone box to turn into a recipe box. yay! no more lost recipes! with that came a new mixing bowl for a vintage kitchenaid mixer he picked up from some dude along the sidewalk (that's san francisco for ya) filled with goodies like toblerone, m&ms, nerds (because he's my nerd), crayons, and four different scents of handsoap (chocolate, cinnamon, lemongrass and orchid). i love it all.
special thanks (again) to all my friends and family who chipped in for this awesome laptop. i love love love it! it's pretty, white, and glossy. and big thanks to my big bro anson for picking it up and reformatting it and installing all the programs on it. i don't think i'll be letting orion play with this one. now he's got his own (my old one), except it still works and maybe that's not a good idea! thanks again (yes again) for all the amazing cards, especially those who set aside some time to make them by hand. i love the book idea, and i'm so happy it's collected together in this beautiful binding which i will keep forever (pics to come).
big BIG thanks to my one and only beau BO for putting this all together, organizing everything, connecting with my friends, and just being one amazing guy. you are the best. yes, really are the best!!! and orion too, he helped a lot, he is a great assistant :)
we were planning to walk around the city this afternoon since the rain has stopped and it's surprisingly sunny today. once the boys wake from their naps, we'll head out on our adventure. tonight, the lovely diana from new jersey will be joining us for dinner. not sure where to go yet, but at least i have a fast new computer to yelp on!
ok, really i promise pics to come. THANK YOU EVERYONE for being part of my special day. i think i'm gonna like being 28!!!
