IMG_20150902_123109I was traveling yet again last week when it came time for my birthday.  It’s funny.  In my mind my birthday is both a personal new year and the point when I can legitimately begin looking for Autumn to arrive.  (I love Autumn.  Favorite season.)    So, I’m always surprised when the phone rings with well-wishes, or boxes arrive in the mail.

It was especially delightful to arrive back home to a stack of such boxes filled with beautiful, thoughtful, amazing gifts.  The photo shows just a sample of things, the birthday suite of the post’s title.

Maybe I’ll post about the finished designs.

Take care.
