throw some confetti and yell

Friday, April 20

Skirt: c/o Windsor, Top: Gap
My sweet sister Jillyan sent us a care package yesterday filled with our favorite candy, books for Everett and a giant bag of confetti. Attached to the confetti was a little note: 

Because sometimes the best cure for anything is grabbing a handful of this stuff, throwing it in the air and yelling.

The girl knows what's up.
And I'll love her forever for it.

That is too cute! Aren't care packages the best? I loved when my brother sent me a surprise one with my favorite tea and cookies from the States (I'm living in Amsterdam right now!) and it totally made my week.

Gotta love siblings :)

Felicity said...

I did this with glitter for a photo shoot, not such a great idea..I wish i would have thought of confetti. Ps glitter is REALLY hard to get off of your stuff, especially your hair.

BeauBella said...

Love this post! So adorable and a great idea!! Also, where did you get your adorable top?!? Love your blog!
