A Hoot.

I just came to the realization that I have a thing for owls. I was perusing the anthropologie website when this adorable plate caught my eye. A french owl smoking a pipe. Doesn't get any cuter than that.

Then I realized I am also sporting my Forever 21 Owl necklace today!

I've got this owl Kleenex box on sitting on my desk as well! I did a little detective work and discovered the Illustrator is named Cori Dantini - check out her blog and etsy shop, her illustrations are just adorably whimsical. Hoot hoot!

Are You The Favorite Person of Anybody?

Happy Birthday Mom,

Thank you for being a shining example of a woman with a big heart and a beautiful spirit. You have always been caring and giving even when we didn't have much. You inspire me with your creativity, through your writing, painting, photography, and even your little games and jokes. You have a way of putting fun into any situation.

Thank you for always supporting me in every endeavor and for letting me make my own decisions and mistakes. I'm sure it wasn't easy having a teenage daughter who could be moody and sassy at times (ok let's face it, I can STILL be moody and sassy), but you managed to put up with me with grace!

I love you with all my heart, Happy Birthday!
