Thank you, Anthropologie!

February is my birthday month, and for reasons unbeknownst to me, I dread it every year. I can't explain it, every year, I resolve that I will attempt to love February - and though I am getting better at it, it's hard for me.
I try to make as small a deal out of my birthday (Leap Year, literally) when it does come around - as I can, so I hadn't been thinking about the month being my birth month until a sweet letter came in the mail today.
I'm serious, Anthropologie, you've got me pegged... I walk slowly by your windows every time I pass one of your stores, I carry your catalogs around in my sketchbook, I walk in for inspiration when I can... all of my birthday and Christmas money goes to special treats that I find in your store - and your Christmas wrapping finds ways to hang around my house all year. (did anyone else love the strands of cotton with tons of buttons sewn on them as ribbons this year?)... but today, you sent me the sweetest little letter in the midst of bills and other random items - with this lovely little fabric envelope inside and a coupon for a birthday discount this month. THANK YOU! I literally sighed - and I smiled - as if a store really could care about me - hey, I know how this world works, but I also know that someone in your ranks thought the extra money it would take to send this out was a genius. The inspiration continues.

I love it. Thanks for the birthday smile... 27 days early.

i think anthropologie is a real person, too, liberty - an inspirational, creative, and thoughtful person at that. :)
