You guys.

I have been dreading this day for months now, but today was actually quite wonderful!

Fun-filled evening with friends last night!
Sleeping in this morning!
Margot cuddles!
Legitimate Autumn weather!
Many phone calls and messages!
Cry-worthy packages!
Successful craftiness!
Christmas music because I can!
Delicious and obscure Thai birthday dinner!

I was smiling SO MUCH today. My heart is so full. Full right up to the very brim. Who cares if I'm getting older?! Adulthood? What??? Nah, we'll just chill here in the middle...wherever this is...and pretend we have no responsibilities and concerns. Good plan, huh?

Most of the day was spent by myself as Phillip was in Tucson for an ultimate frisbee tournament. Initially, I thought I would be bored and just spend the day catching up on Parenthood, but once the day actually arrived and I realized God had gifted me beautiful sunshine and cooler temperatures I knew I had to get out and accomplish something today. Enter phone dates and Jo-Ann Fabrics!

I received all these treasures in a package from my parents. I tell ya, my mom really knows what makes my heart tick. After my griping over a lack of Autumn in Arizona I can now smell true Autumn straight from Mom & Dad's home! Plus, I get to taste the yumminess of buckeyes from The Party Shop!

I'm so proud. Yes, it's a simple design but I made it! The original design doesn't have any pockets or anything, but I intended to use some of the excess fabric to get some pockets on the inside. Welp, that didn't happen. I was so intent on making sure I didn't screw something up that I didn't want to add the pocket at the wrong time or add it on the wrong side! I'll consider this the trial run. I feel like I have finally swung the DIY door wide open. My sewing machine and I grew closer today =)

Thank you to everyone for all the lovely birthday wishes! You have no idea how much I appreciate your words!
