A heavy dose of butter, a thin spread of cream cheese, sliced radishes, thin sliced green onions, salt. 
so so so good. 

*cream cheese not needed, but M will gobble it up, radishes and all, with a dab of it on there. 

I’ve been sick, sick, sick for the past few days. I woke up Saturday morning (the day of the party) with a mild fever. But, with everything set up, the grandparents willing and able to watch Marlowe, and everybody already having purchased they’re sparkling attire, I didn’t want to cancel last minute… so it continued. I dosed and dosed in oils, minerals, vitamins all day long…. and had the best night I’ve had in a long, long time. Whether I had originally planned to have a birthday party, or just a sparkle party— it turned out to be on of the best birthday weekends, I’ve ever had. But now, here I am… fighting the sickness. I spent all of yesterday, my (real) birthday, sick as a dog. Today, I’m actually able to open the computer in front of me… and luckily, I’m slowly, but surely on the mend.

We’ve sprung-forward, the days of sun are longer, I’m another year older, and I can’t wait to feel 100% to keep moving forward. A big spring-cleaning and purge is in order for the new season. I look forward to the freeing feeling that purge and reassessment of priorities brings. Less is more. Quality over quantity, always and forever.

I have a zillion and a half photos from Saturday. (Seriously, best. night. ever. I love my friends.) I’m hoping to pull it all together soon. Until then, I’m back to tea, bed, and movies with M.

  1. LOVE that plate, did you make it yourself? I've been seeing a how-to floating around pinterest for a while now. Hope you feel better!

    • nooo…… but that seems REALLY fun. I'm going to search for it 🙂

  2. Hope you'll feel better soon! Take care and do drink LOTS of water. 🙂

    • I am THE WORST at remembering to drink water… something I work on constantly. I've been doing OKAY today 🙂 Thank you!

  3. Happy belated birthday! On a side note, I love reading about you clean-freakedness. I am the very same way, and while it may annoy the shit out of my husband at times, it's how I've always been. I, too, am looking forward to spring cleaning. It always feels so good to get rid of all the extra stuff weighing you down!

    • Thank you! Today was my first day out of bed for longer than an hour at a time…. I cleaned the whole place (minus bathrooms and laundry) from top to bottom. Looking forward to organizing more tomorrow 🙂 It's such good feeling 🙂

    • I got them about two years ago at Anthro— not sure if they have more, but I hope they do, because I have two, and I would like more!
