21 July: Sunlight
23 July: Annoying
I at first wasn’t sure how to feel about my birthday falling on the prompt “annoying.” Is that a serendipitous hit on my personality? I realized shortly, though, that it’s pretty fitting. I am incredibly annoying on my birthday. I use my “Birthday Week” to get out of doing anything I don’t want and also celebrate my Birthday Eve and Birthday Boxing Day. I don’t think it’s as self-centered as I make it sound here–I wish everyone would celebrate their birthdays just as much! It’s a fun day.
Oh and the gifts featured above, because I know you’re curious: an ice cream maker attachment for my KitchenAid stand mixer, a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream recipe book, and diamond earrings (disguised in the large central box). And yes, that’s Leonardo you spot in the back eyeing my presents.
25 July: Forever
I go through phases of wearing my grandmother’s old wedding ring. It pains me to see a symbol of so many happy years of marriage hidden in a closet, so I pull it out. The ring is a size 4 and doesn’t fit anyone else I know, so my grandmother gave it to me when I got married. It has no use for her since she’s remarried, so I consider it my duty to keep it alive.
26 July: Spiral
27 July: “Can you hear me?”
The universe makes me so small.
29 July: Robot
Magical, wonderful machine.
30 July: Fur
I like that this week’s pictures features gifts from each of my grandmothers: this vintage coat was given to me many years ago by my paternal grandmother.
31 July: Yellow
I haven’t mentioned my Anthropologie obsession here. It’s bad.
My favorite photo from this week was “sunlight.” What about yours?
