This morning I nearly leaped out of bed. I'm going on a treasure hunt, love marks the spot.
Today is the first day of Birthday Week and I can't let a moment go unwasted! I planned a special surprise for myself for this weekend, so I have to be all amazed when I hand myself my car keys, with a tank full of gas and a box full of cupcakes, and say: "Go dear, go!"
I'm really excited to hug and compliment myself all week long! Actually the self-hugging thing probably won't be happening, but I will be taking a full week to value myself! And I'm going to track down the people I love and coerce them into hanging out with me, even if I have to steal them from their beds, sheets and all, at five in the morning to go to Denny's. Oh wait, that happened to me once. :)
My co-worker, Mike, brought me lots of Ghirardelli dark chocolate, because I think that's all I talk about when he comes around. And my co-worker, Lizzie, surprised me with a fountain pen and a supply of ebony purple ink to last for myself and three generations! I was so touched by her thoughtfulness, and then suddenly my hands and face were covered in purple ink, and she had to kindly show me how to use a fountain pen. And my other co-worker, Will, brought me a homemade spice cupcake with maple-something frosting! Which I shoved entirely in my mouth and shouted-
I LOVE CELEBRATING AND SUNLIGHT AND HUGS AND COMPLIMENTS AND PINK TOENAILS AND SNUGGLES IN MY BED WITH MY TEDDY IN A GIRAFFE CAPE THAT MACE GAVE ME, WATCHING PARKS & REC AFTER I DISCOVERED THE NETFLIX PHONE APP!!
And then his face was covered in crumbs.
But this week I will be soaking up lots of joy.
Cupcake cheers to all,
