happy weekend to me


This weekend was wonderful in that it seemed to last forever. I was blessed to spend some quality time with both family and friends and that is what a happy birthday is all about. The weekend seemed to start on Thursday and go well into this evening. These are just a few of my favorite things.

::opening my shop:: going to hear an author speak about her great book::receiving a gift subscription to Selvedge magazine:: going to the museum with the family:: not cooking a single meal:: having brunch with the extended family:: receiving a beautiful necklace made by SCHEER:: going to see a great movie at this new theater in town. i would recommend this place to anyone who lives here:: wrapping up brown paper packages tied up with string and shipping them off:: sketching ideas in a new journal, it always feels good to finish a journal:: walking to the park with friends and playing in the sun:: knitting with friends::

There is something about having the sun come out that just enhances the events of a day. The weather around here has been so nice and is has put everyone in such good moods. I know that the rain is said to be coming tomorrow but I believe the events of this weekend will hold me over till the next sunny day.

Indeed, a happy weekend! The Living Room looks awesome - a step up from the Cinemark back in MS (Yee haw).

Happy birthday.

Re Living Room Theater - even better, in a couple of months a restaurant will open across the street (my best friend's brother's place - Clyde Commons) in the new Ace Hotel. Already the Ace is worth checking out (for the photo booth in the lobby), but the CC should be a great before/after movie place to eat and get a drink. (Nate hasn't paid me to say this, I'm just excited about it.)

Your shop is lovely!!
So insirational. I share a early march birthday with you and happen to have a great time as well. Long weekends are in fact some of the best things. I'd love to link to your blog if that is ok with you.

I just checked out your Etsy shop- I think you've got great stuff in there. There are so many creative people in Portland! My husband and I almost moved there but chose McMinnville instead.
