Birthday Magic

This post is about two things: my love for snow and my birthday.  When I was a teenager, I was convinced I would move to Canada when I was a grown-up because I loved snow so much.  There is something so wonderful and whimsical about flakes gently gliding from the clouds.

Today is my birthday and I'm calling this snow an extra special treat for an extra special birthday.  This birthday isn't really special by any means, other than the fact that it is my special day.  There's no special number or special thing happening, just birthday magic.  And that's all I need.

Okay, so this post is about three things... I have to at least mention this dress!  I found it a few days ago while thrifting, and being pretty certain it wouldn't fit, I decided to bring it home with me anyway... vintage dresses are so deceiving on the hanger, aren't they?  I haven't found such a good dress while thrifting in a long time, so I'm definitely calling this one a score.  It has also rekindled my love for red.  I need more of this color back in my wardrobe!

I'm off to eat cake and stomp in the snow and do whatever else I want!  Happy January 6th, friends!

  13. This is a lovely post, I am also always very happy if I find a Vintage dress, it is not easy but it is special. Snow always makes the streets become clean and the city becomes smaller, beautiful... Happy Birthday Katie!
