Wednesday, February 23

many moons ago...





Today is my birthday, three days ago was my mom's birthday. Befittingly she is here with me at my house for 5 days since a winter storm rendered her house without power for 5 days. So there's a lot of sewing, some baking, some thrifting and even a perfunctory dose of bickering filling the days. She also told me she was in labor with me for 12 hours while she laughed through my brother's labor three years later, so that was nice to hear. :/

I'll be spending my birthday with Chad (Mr. DG) in Detroit, vintage shopping, antique mall browsing and gin drinking. So yeah, just like a regular Saturday, only it's Wednesday.

Gasp, you look so like your mum. Especially the top left and bottom right sets. These are so lovely. Hope you both enjoy your few days together (Even the bickering)!
Happy Birthday to you both.

I love these photos! (Also the "perfunctory dose of bickering" to which I can relate.) Have a wonderful time in Detroit--I know you will! (And I'll be there a month from now, doing the very same for my own birthday. Hey, Detroit makes it special!)

Happy happy birthday!

That's so funny. First off Happy Birthday. But my mother, and grand mother all share the same birthday on the 18th. And half my family is all in February it's really odd how that happen, but neat at the same time.

Love these photobooth images of you and your mom! (Your adorable little haircut!) :) And I do have to say that your remark about the bickering brought a smile.
