8 things for today.

the gang is off to the beach

*  *  *

today.  i realized that it's been a while since my last {8 things}.  so here it goes...  


today.  
i turn 32.  my mom always tells the story about how she had to get the doctor off of the softball field to deliver me.  apparently, he was the pitcher in the middle of a tournament and was not too thrilled about this baby who was ready to come into the world two weeks early! 

today. 
honestly, i am not feeling particularly festive due to the weather and my knee.  neither of those rascally things are cooperating!  the weather is rainy, dark and cool.  my knee is swollen, sore and covered in an ugly new rash.  (i see the doc tomorrow, so i'm trying not to worry)  

today. 
i declare that official birthday celebrations will take place this weekend instead!  

today.   
we are heading to ithaca this week for my husband's thesis defense!  on friday, he'll earn his PhD and will no longer be a grad student!  hooray!  i think we'll end up here for a celebratory/belated birthday dinner.  

today. 
{day one} of twodaysinjuly is here!

today.  
sending birthday wishes to stephanie!  have you seen her latest venture called kitchen sketches?  she is such a sweet and talented superwoman!   i'm not sure how she does it all, she continues to amaze & inspire me with all of her projects and adventures~  happy birthday to you, dear stephanie!  

today.  
i'm loving this old photograph of my grandmother.  my mom is the little girl on the left, she's shown here with her two cousins, and my uncle (on the bike).  the infamous family dog called "skid" is leading the way, heading off to the beach for the day with the kids.  growing up, my summers always included days like that too.  i feel very lucky for those special days on the cape.  

today.  
i am heading into my 32nd year.  looking forward to seeing what it has to offer!

  1. Sarah, happy birthday! What a lovely post. I keep forgetting that you live sort of near me (Now I won't forget!) I will have to check out that restaurant in T-burg. Looks great. And congrats to your husband. I agree- celebrate next week. Hope your knee feels better. :)
