a cause for celebration

30th birthday

today I embark upon a new adventure: my thirties.  so far, so good.  here’s a little birthday dreamlist.  I’m off to eat cake and celebrate with my two favorite guys.  happy weekend, friends!

one: silk boyfriend shirt / two: philly boots / three: black tartan polish / four: black diamond ring / five: staub cocotte / six: score & solder terrarium / seven: bodhi desk

{most of these I’ve pinned over the past few months.  follow me here if you’d like}
