Birthday Bird

  Marisa of The Shades of Monet Chronicles

Greetings from this chilly mountainside November morning!  Marisa here today bringing you another critter infested swap via Lisa here on my birthday.  Yes, that's right, bust out the birthday cake - today is the day that I celebrate becoming another year wiser...notice how I didn't say older, ha!  

Anyhow, as birthdays go, I will be be diving into a healthy heap of German chocolate cake and be hitting the road for a birthday dinner with the Mr. to feast on whatever my little heart desires.  As for today, my little heart was desiring this bird printed dress of Lisa's laced with plenty of layers because snap, it's cold here on the mountain and a double shot of color because I'm feeling rather festive being the birthday bird and all.


Clearly this dress can fly you through the seasons.  I just love how Lisa wore it dolled up for summer and Hannah with tights and a blouse for a more transitional look.  Now onto that cake and those candles.  It's time for me to celebrate darlings!

Have one happy Thursday!
Love Bunches,
