An Early Birthday Present to Myself of Myself


Tomorrow is my birthday. I'll be the big 2-8. I've already received one present ... from myself. It's a custom portrait of me and the husband by the mega-talented Nan Lawson. I'd been on her waiting list for a while, but it just so happened the portrait came together this week. It makes me smile every time I look at it. It might be the best present I've ever given. Hope you all have a lovely weekend! Eat a cupcake and think of me!

PS - Please check out the guest posts I did this week, a little fall decor for Natty Michelle and my one piece of wedding advice over at Lovely Little Things.

  14. That is one fabulous birthday present. I'm all about celebrating birthdays and giving yourself presents. My birthday was over a month ago and I am still asking myself "can I justify buying this as a birthday present to me?" Haha

  17. Best wishes (a little early) on your birthday my fellow Libra! My birthday gift to myself this year was a new pair of boots. Jon found this very funny. He said "Well, if you bought it for yourself doesn't that defeat the purpose of it being a present?" I said "No, it justifies me purchasing these damn boots." Have a lovely weekend!!!
