You all are just the loveliest circle of blog friends a girl could ask for, I hope you all know that. I received so many birthday wishes, lovely notes and a few sneaky gifts that I couldn't help but be a victim of the warm fuzzies. Thank you all for taking the time to leave me lots of loving, even though I'm closer to the big 3-0 (I'm 28 now and honestly? I doubt I'll mind 30 one bit) I still plan to continue being as mischievous, spontaneous and the best faery friend I can be for in the words of Peter Pan "If growing up means it would be beneath my dignity to climb a tree, I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up! Not me!"
My birthday was wonderful, if not exactly the day of self pampering I had originally planned. It began with a few extra winks in my cozy warm bed, some coffee and a fresh muffin. The middle was spent getting paperwork that the mortgage underwriters just realized they needed together and heading to a job interview which while I believe it went well am unsure of the day-job fruit it will bear as it was with a temp agency. I made a pit stop by my former coffeebucks place of employment and saw two of the girls I used to work with, one of whom I've become friends with but rarely see due to her ludicrously hectic work/school schedule. I received the gift of free coffee and a bit of chatter before heading home to relax as planned.
But, as are the way of plans, they like to turn tail and run! I ended up being too fidgety to relax and instead opted to pack boxes, eat a delicious avocado and tomato sandwich and work on a goblin art doll whose poor arm had broken when I was clothing him! During of all this, my lovely husband arrived home with a chocolatey, chocolate cake for me and swept me off for dinner.
In the midst of all of this, the fact that I am today's February Fairies blogger completely slipped my mind! I will be back with a post a bit later, that I was reminded of several times by my wee green skinned friend yesterday. Oh, absent mindedness.
P.S. If you have never or haven't in a long while, read 'Peter Pan' by J.M. Barrie. It is so rich with fairy lore, nostalgia and reasons to not turn into a stuffy old grown-up that you'll be the better for it. <3 Conversely, if you've no time to read, I highly, highly recommend the 2003 live action movie of the same name, it was so beautifully done that I won't even pretend I didn't shed a few tears.
