The big 2-8

It's my birthday! This means that I'm another year older (thanks for the old lady jokes, Max!), but more importantly, it's a wonderful excuse to PIG OUT on all the food that makes me happy. Namely, ice cream.

On Friday, I celebrated with my colleagues by going to a frozen yogurt place where I gorged myself on 13 ounces of ice cream (and I was this close to going back for seconds!). Yesterday we went to this local place that milks their own cows for their ice cream. I had two scoops of mint chip and rocky road, and it was delicious! And who knows what today will bring? I've already opened such kind cards from family members (thank you!!). And I envision swimming in a vat of ice cream at some point before this day is done. Don't judge me. Eating ice cream is what distracts me from the ever-growing amount of gray hair on my head.

And... an ANNOUNCEMENT! I've opened up my very own Etsy shop (if you're not familiar with Etsy, it's like the amazon.com of handmade goods) in an attempt to sell my handmade cards. It might be a total flop, or I might become a millionaire. Either way, it's been FUN so far!

Here's the link: http://yesteacher.etsy.com

There's not a whole lot in the store just yet... I'll be adding new cards in the next few days. And don't you love the banner at the top of the store? My brother made that (he's crazy talented).

So today, I'm also celebrating the birth of my business (my tiny, microscopic, miniature business)!
