That's what birthdays are for. And peonies.

When the doorbell rang this afternoon, I couldn't be more excited to run to the door because the only thing it could be was my Abro bag! And may I tell you, it makes me so, so happy! It's big, the leather is soft and supple and it turns out the beige color of the bag has a pinkish undertone which make the color adjust to the colors you're wearing. 
The other photo's are nearly all from recent birthday gifts. I'm so thrilled to practice with my new flash, slowly glance over the beautiful pages of Vogue Living Houses, Gardens, People and spoil my feet with cooling, mint smelling balm. The coffeecup was given to me last year and the peonies last weekend, fresh out of the garden. My living room smells so sweet and delicious. I'd wish they never wither! Oh, and the astonishing chandelier is from the place where we had dinner on my birthday.
