Birthday Week Traditions

Beautiful Friends,
This week is my birthday week. 
It officially starts tomorrow when we go to Atlanta to pick up my sister at the airport. 
While in Atlanta, Daniel is going to take me to Anthropologie to use my birthday 15% off to get one of my favorite candles and to Trader Joe's for birthday treats.
We love to celebrate the little things around here.

We have had a rainy week or two here in Alabama.
It rained on the 4th of July.
We are saving our sparklers for clear weather.
July 5th marked the 12th year since my Daddy passed away so we celebrated him by watching Gene Kelly movies and going out for Frosties at Wendy's (my Daddy loved them). 
Then today my sweet Daniel cut his hand and he had to go to the hospital to get stitches.
So scary and stressful. 
I love rainy days but I am ready for my sister to bring some sunshine from California.

Last year we started a tradition with Roscoe where he gives me a frame-worthy card or print for my birthday gift and he puts his hand and footprints in them or on back of them.
I hope to one day have a wall covered with these special cards filled with love notes from my baby boy.
This year he is giving me this Emily Martin print (because I love black swans) and last year he gave me this Amelie print by Nouvellegamine. 
Isn't he the most thoughtful little thing?

Also, we have a winner for the Doo Nanny flower crown / headband.
Congratulations Sonia V, picked your number.
I want to make everyone who entered a special little something so please email me at fritzimarie(at)yahoo(dot)com with your address. 
Thank you so much for supporting me and my little shop.
I adore you all.

Happy birthday Kat! We always make a big deal out of birthdays at our house. This summer, Max actually got to celebrate three times. I think that Kiz was a little jealous. Good luck and have Dan "build you a cake".
