Happy Birthday to You
At our house we make a big deal of birthdays. Actually we turn them into week long festivals if we can get anyone to cooperate, and sometimes even if they don't. The celebration of life, of course should happen everyday, but birthdays are an excuse for a little self indulgence.
That's why we have extreme empathy for those who are born in December or January. Those born in December have the whole holiday thing overshadowing their birthday, and those who have a birthday in January. Well, it's a month when everyone is pretty well broke from the holidays. Granted there are some good sales going on that giftors can buy for giftees, but pretty much, a lot of inventory is picked over.
This is where buyoutsidethebox.com can come in and save the day. We always have beautiful art and fine, handmade things for sale. We also have a wishlist option and so you can register for all the wonderful things that will nurture your sole.
A.A. Milne was born on this day. He's the author of "Winnie the Pooh." If you have no one else's birthday to celebrate, then think "Pooh."--Ruth Mitchell
