Birthday Girl

Today is my birthday (twenty-six!). It's clearly a great day for a birthday not only because the weather is perfect and the leaves are turning but also because I share my day of birth with other important people: a dear friend from grad school, a sweet anonymous commenter, Elaine's Adam, and Alfred Nobel (may he RIP), among others. Christopher took the day off work and my dad is in town, so I'm so overwhelmed with the possibilities of everything we could do today (bike rides! waffles! museums! hikes in rock creek park! movies! dancing! twizzlers! exclamation points for everyone! and all the parentheses I want in my blog posts!). I hope you have a terrific weekend and I'll see you next week, older, wiser, and fuller with waffles.

Happy Birthday! I love the cropped pants, but don't your ankles get cold?

Happy Birthday!! I also turn 26 today and I have to say October 21 is probably one of the better days of the year :) I am glad that I share my birthday with all those amazing people, and you as well! I have been following your blog for about a year now and I look forward to your posts each week! I hope you are enjoying DC and this beautiful weather we are having on the East Coast!! (so many exclamation points!!)

Happy Birthday! I'm a new reader and love your blog. It probably helps that I'm currently wearing basically the exact same outfit! I'm an elementary school teacher and your blog is inspiring me to be more stylish while still school-appropriate. Also, I just started blogging this summer (about cooking). If you have a chance to check it out, I'd love any feedback!

You are adorable. And if I was still in DC, I would totally take you out for ice cream at Cone E. Island's or whatever that place is. Maybe when I get back there...one day...hopefully soon.

In the meantime, I hope you had a fantastic birthday!
