A banner day!
Editors Note: This post is actually from March 2010. Unfortunately, when our website crashed in December 2011, we lost most of our content, but we were able to retrieve this and one other post from Google Archives. Because we are a nostalgic folk, we added them back to the site again. Sorry for any confusion the date on this post may cause! We just wanted to keep a tiny taste of our former site.
It is late (early?) and a week to end all weeks. Tax deadlines are approaching, school has been out all week (equals Finn has had to endure full days with Mommy at the shop), there is a mountain of laundry to be washed and packed before we leave for a weekend trip to Virginia, and end-of-the-month bills and paperwork are upon me. If March came in like a lamb (and didn’t we love every sunny minute of it?), then this is the lion! If I was gnashing my teeth and hiding under my covers, it could actually be forgivable.
Except that today, the last whiff of March, was a banner day. After a dismal stretch of rain, cold, wind and winter’s last hurrah, today the sun came out, the coats came off, the front door swung open to the street and–well, that’s not even the best of it.
Today, my first born little girl turned 11! She celebrated with donuts for her classroom, a half-day of school, and then a very grownup trip to the salon (On the Fringe–I wholeheartedly recommend them!). Dinner out (her choice), cake and presents and old family friends. Next weekend is her “for friends” party–I can’t wait to post a recap. Our parties have themes and usually request costumes and other foolish acts of our guests, and this year’s theme is one of my favorites!
Also, the shop was featured on Scoutie Girl with a wonderful write up for the new series “best of the bricks!” Obviously, “brick and mortar” shops hold a special place in my heart–so hop on over and take a look at the article and past features, leave a comment and let Khristian and Tara know if there are any bricks in your town that deserve a shout-out!
So, goodbye winter, march, taxes, laundry, lions, lent…Hello new world, new life, new month, new decade!
