It’s the middle of August, which means wild chanterelles are growing in the back forest, the hot air balloons go up twice a day at the nearby balloon festival, and it’s my birthday again.
Now that I’ve gotten over the shock of turning thirty (it took me a few years; you’ll understand if you too have recently left the twenties behind), birthdays are no big deal. Tomorrow I’m turning 33 and can’t wait to celebrate with a group of dear friends.
I also wanted to celebrate here, with you. One evening back in June, I scratched out a list of things I was currently obsessed with and thought ‘Wouldn’t that be a fun idea for a post?’. It didn’t occur to me that a giveaway of my favorite things would be even better, but eventually I put two and two together, contacted some of my favorite companies, and here we are!
This giveaway is epic. But first, do scroll through my list of current favorites things – everything from beauty products to iPhone apps, kitchen knives and shoes. Plus the all-important ingredient of a girl’s thirties – chocolate.
