Happy Birthday to Me!

Today, I happily turn 29. Courtesy of my mother and sister’s families, I made myself a gigantic latte with my new stovetop espresso maker and milk frother:

And, there is the little matter of my new BFF, Coco. She hails from New York via the outlet mall in Clinton:

Soon, I will post a video of my now completely-organized, clean and gorgeous home. There are a few loads of laundry to do, so that I can finish putting some clothes in storage (only I do the laundry in this house). But thanks to my unbelievably generous fairy mother-in-law, everything was organized by professionals!

Today, I feel blessed. Not because I received useful outdoor equipment, although I do love nice things, but because there is so much love and joy in my life and my home. This is a happy home, and that is all I have ever really wanted in life. I am happy. And I got my guys, who could ask for anything more?
