So, yesterday was my birthday. I was born. All those years ago. Yay.
It was a splendid time, really.
I made a little cake for myself, I went to a quaint little French restaurant for lunch, I went and explored some little antique shops, I got some new 1940s style gloves with fur on them (thanks, mommy...), I listened to all of my Owl City albums, and as always, I was able to reflect on the incredible life God gave me 18 years ago.
(FYI, I didn't go to the French place in this picture specifically, you know. The one I went to wasn't pink-y like this. :P Ah well. But they did have pastries, which added to the Frenchy-ness! :D )
Then I got on my little computer of course and checked out all my friend's birthday wishes (thanks so much, friends!). Y'all are so nice. :)
Then I did some crafts, and made myself a necklace...
And I did a little bit of writing (yes, even on my birthday, on my free day, because I'm a good little writer...) and it turned out pretty good.
Halfway through a scene, my sister walks in, and asks the horrid question that every writer dreads: "So what's your story about, anyways? Why's it called 'The Hidden Queen'?"
Me: "Well, it's about this queen who has to go undercover to save the brother that she hates."
Sister: "Why does she hate her brother?"
Me: "Because she thinks he killed her husband."
Sister: "... well did he?"
Sister: *stares into space for a second*
Me: "So are you intrigued?"
Sister: (still staring at the wall. Smiles slowly.) "Yeah..."
So if I finish my book and it turns out crummy, I'll know that at least my sister likes it. *smiles smugly* Hehe. :)
Speaking of books, the best thing about my birthday is that everyone (meaning, all of my family) knows that they must get me books.
You'll never see me buy a book for myself around December or January, because that's when people are supposed to give me books.
That's why I didn't do a post or anything on the books I got for Christmas, because I knew I'd get some more for my birthday so I'll just do a post on them all together. :) I'm having the rest of the fam over in February, and they'll probably give me some more books then, so I'll do my little 'Books I Got' post after that. Ok? Think you can wait that long? Wonderful.
Oh, and here's my cake. :) I was trying to make them look like hydrangeas. I think I made the leaf icing a little too bright, but over all I think this year's birthday cake turned out nice. I might do a post on my other blog about the cake, so stay tuned. :)
So after a nice long day of cake and books and Frenchy-ness and vintage stuff... I went to bed quite satisfied with my life. God's in His heaven, and all's right with the world (almost).
Till next year. :)
