Bloggie Birthday + Introduce Yourself!

Yesterday marked a big day ... my blog's 2nd birthday!

Let's plan a celebration in style, shall we?
Of course you are invited.
After receiving this in the mail, you learn the party details.

It will be a most colorful affair.

With St. Germain drinks galore, of course.

And for the meal, we will have cookie dough dip.

And will the party end after that?

Because we've got a bounce house, ya'll.

And then I will send you all on your merry way with a vintage teacup candle that I effortlessly DIY'ed. (Remember, we're dreaming here)  

But seriously, it's been such a FUN two years, and I have met so many sweet people through this ol' blog. 

Now, in true cocktail party fashion, let's do a fun little introduction game.  Please comment with your name and where you live.  For those of you that have a blog -- your blog name & web address, and your favorite three things to write about!
