And as the special day nears {with tomorrow being my birthday} I wanted to take this time to thank you for following my journey of planning a very c&é English tea party to celebrate my birthday. As another year passes in life and here at c&é, I am humbled to have such a lovely following of beautiful people. 
A few of my close friends here have asked me what I wanted for my birthday, but I ask for only one thing. I partnered with Art Feeds to promote their goals and values in mobilizing creative healing and development in children through art. They have impacted more than 20,000 children. It takes only $38 to sponsor one child through a year of the Art Feeds programs. If you would like to make a donation, in lieu of my birthday present, please follow this link to change a child’s perspective and facilitate emotional expression.
And so I’m off for my birthday…
