on playing catch-up...

There's been a whirlwind of things happening this week, all of which I haven't been able to share here. I'm 25! And feeling great. I was spoiled beyond belief and was taken back by how much love I received all over the place. It made my heart swell! 
Let me rewind and start with Tuesday because that was the day that I got my fingers tattooed! I've been wanting to get my fingers tattooed for some time now and I thought I'd treat myself for my birthday (I've been treating myself a whole lot this birthday!). I went downtown near Chinatown to Eddie's Tattoo, a place that was recommended to me by one of my loyal customers at the coffee shop. I couldn't be happier :)

FULL MOON. It turned out just the way I imagined and I love it to death. I got full moon because of my fascination with the full phases, full moon being my favorite of course! For me, the full moon represents wholeness and strength, both things I like to hold on to. It hurt like crazy but only for the first two days and now I am back to normal.

Wednesday was my birthday and I got to spend it with my husband. It was a nice relaxing day. We headed up Peddler's Village which a neat little town full of fun shops that we browsed around for the longest time, hand in hand. The evening was spent at my in laws where my mother in law cooked me the best homemade dinner a girl could ask for. Bobby bought my favorite cake in all the land, an Italian Rum Cake. Delish! And when it was time to open gifts I was not disappointed.

That's right! I got my beloved banjo. I freaked out to say the least. Her name is Norma and she sounds like heaven. I've never played any sort of guitar or stringed instrument so I'm basically learning from the ground up. However, Bobby has been playing guitar for a while and has been teaching me all he can. We did find out that the banjo is completely different and so now we are both learning as we go along. Thursday night I tuned the whole thing on my own and I was proud. I'm excited for this journey and so excited to have a new toy to pour my soul into. 

It's been a fun birthday and so thankful for all I have. Now it's time to have even more fun for we're heading to Dorney Park for day for some thrills :) 



  1. Happy belated birthday!! I am all about (over)treating myself during my birthday so I love that you did something you really wanted. The tattoo looks great!
