Falling Forward

Birthday Wishes

Posted by in A Little Conversation

It’s my 29th birthday on Wednesday (and also my two year anniversary with Q, horrah!). We’re having our engagement photo session with our wedding photographer (Maria Farrelly if you’re interested) in the afternoon and then heading out for a seafood feast at the Loch Fyne restaurants in the evening. (Can we say yum?)

I’ve never been mega crazy for presents, but I do have a Pinterest board called “Gifts for me, please” because it’s easier to point people to that when they ask me what I want.

Some of my choices are more frivolous than others, but if I receive any of these it’ll be a pretty great day:

Roller skates. I don’t know why I want them so much but this pair has yellow wheels and that is obviously AWESOME.

Snow globe rings (!). I just love these full stop. How amazing would it be to wear a different one every day?

Origami heart necklace. We’ve been making a lot of origami hearts for the wedding recently, so it’d be nice to have this reminder of them :)

EE Cummings Journal. The only poem in the world that I actually like.

Snow globe stamp. (I am a bit obsessed with snow globes right now)

Yellow Swiss Army Knife?! Even if I never used this it would still be amazing.

S is for Sushi (& Sarah) plate. Because I love sushi and I’m sort of starting to love decorative plates.

Fortune Cookie necklace. Just because it’s super cute.

Of course, if I don’t get any of these things it’s just a nice excuse to purchase them for myself, right?

Dear Contact Lenses,

Thanks for being a free trial. I’m hoping that we’ll get along this time around but if we don’t at least I didn’t have to pay for you to find that out.

Love Sarah

PS. Welcome to my eyes! Make yourself at home.

Dear Soy Sauce,

Thanks for being an easy way to add flavour to food. We’re cooking more and more chinese meals these days and you’re the perfect accompaniment to all of them. Don’t ever change.

Love Sarah
