Birthday Eve Favourites

Today was my birthday eve. You didn't know that was a thing? It totally is. To be honest, I've been celebrating my birthday all week, and you know what? It feels pretty amazing to just be nice to myself for a week. This week I slept well, took it easier than usual, didn't overbook myself and got a few birthday treats.

My favourites this week:

*I got a party dress that makes me feel like a birthday princess. Life is complete.

*I made this little festive mason jar and got some stripey paper straws. Straws make everything feel festive. Even water.

*I ordered something I've wanted for a long time, an Erin Condren personalised planner. It was supposed to take like ten days to ship, and then the very next day I got an email saying it shipped already! I should be getting it any day now. PS if you have been eyeing these yourself, click this link to sign up for an account on the site and then we both get ten dollars off! The only downside to this site is you can't ship directly to Canada unless you want to pay $40 (?!) so ship it to a US address like I've done or order it from this site, which ships to Canada for cheap. I will naturally be doing a full post on it when I receive it.

*While I was in the states last weekend, I finished reading Bridget Jones: Mad About The Boy. I highly recommend it, it was so fun to see Bridget as a mom, despite the sad circumstances. It's very rare that a book actually makes me laugh out loud, but this one did!

*I am honestly so at peace with myself and my life at this moment in my life. Nothing is perfect, but it's perfect in it's own little way. I am enjoying where I'm at and how far I've come, and I also can't wait to see what the future holds. I'm constantly learning new things about myself and learning how to handle what life throws at me. I am so grateful for the people in my life, Leigh, my parents, my in laws, all my family and friends, and my awesome clients. I have so many good people in my life. Not to mention my super-bff, my dog.
