Peonies and Chanel

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Good morning, sweets! Hope you're having a fabulous start to the week. I sure know I am!

J started my week of on the right foot by having a gorgeous bouquet of peonies delivered to my office to kick off bday week. They're so gorgeous, they just lit up the entire room. It was a total surprise too since my actual birthday isn't until Friday.  But this way I get to enjoy them the whole week long before heading on out to the beach and vacation.

And even more exciting is that tonight we're going shopping at Chanel, yup I said Chanel for an early birthday gift! I can't believe I'm finally getting my Chanel bag after all of these years. Lucky me! I guess there are pluses to turning the big 4-0 after all. And if this is how the 40s are starting, I'm really not minding them in the slightest.  Bring on the new decade! :)

Enjoy the day, lovelies and I'll see you all tomorrow!

xoxo
