Today’s my birthday, and I’m celebrating blogger-style by throwing myself a virtual party! The theme: pretty in pink, with ruffles, flowers, bows, and a little sparkle. Perfect for little girls’ parties too, I know – but don’t we all want to be princesses on our birthdays, no matter how old we are? : )
