Today is my birthday. A big one because it ends with a zero. I am sharing my celebration with my dad since it's also Father's Day. In fact, all those years ago I was born on Father's Day.
A few friends will be over in a while for cake but my big party is next weekend. So today is really just the pre-birthday.
I was in a party mood last night. I recently purchased some paper lanterns with a gift certificate from Victorian Trading Company (a gift from my sister) and I decided to hang them on my balcony. I bought a set of three but I only hung two of them. Believe me, it was plenty bright with just the two of them. I do not need anymore paper lanterns. If you read my post about illumination night, you will see why I make this statement. But these vintage look lanterns are fabulous. I love the muted colors and the floral patterns. They are perfect for summer parties. I might even hang them in my bedroom when the summer is over.
Anyway, I'm off for my pre-birthday cake and then to watch the Lakers get crushed by the Celtics. Oh, and in case you're wondering, no I don't feel any older!
