my little sister, ivy, turned 19 on monday!
we both have mondays off, and levi was in north carolina, so we were able to spend the whole day together. we didn't really do much, but we somehow managed to have A LOT of fun.
we did all the things that make a day good:
1. we ate good food.
2. we shopped.
3. we tried on clothes we couldn't afford just for fun.
4. we drank good coffee.
5. we talked.
6. and talked.
7. and talked.
8. we discussed the merits of beards.
9. and we laughed.
10. and ate some more...
i think my favorite part of the day was laying out by the fountain at fashion island in the sunshine. it was so pretty and warm... you couldn't help but feel content.
her birthday present still hasn't arrived in the mail yet, but this is what i bought for her:
it's a 5-year diary that asks one question every day. i bought one for myself too, so that we can do them together!
happy birthday, ivy! thank you for letting me spend your day with you! i love you!!!
**update: the diaries are available at anthropologie. i bought mine on amazon for cheaper, but they're really expensive on amazon now.
