Longitude & Gratitude

Gratitude--My husband planning my birthday party and this REDIC good cake!

As you may know, I just turned 30.  I know.  In my 20s, I used to freak out that I was too old whenever I'd have a birthday, but now that my 20's are behind me and I'm 30...IT'S AWESOME!!  I was fortunate enough to have most of my favorite people with me and my younger sister gave me these gorgeous bracelets that I wanted to share with you. They are called Longitude & Gratitude Surf Bracelets by jewelry designer Laura Lobdell and they are handmade silk scarves with different beaches and nautical locations on them and fastened with a shell. OBSESSED. 

This is my freckle covered arm with my awesome Surf Bracelets.  

See the longitude and latitude locations?  

They are meant to be worn a few at a time--so fun!
I love the name too, Longitude & Gratitude.  I am very grateful for my awesome life as a 30 year old and for my sweet sister for these bracelets!  Thanks for keeping me cool.  Laura Lobdell's store is located in Manhattan at 183 1/8th West 10th--get at it!  What are you all up to this weekend in the searing heat?  If you're up in Litchfield area in CT, check out gallery night in Lakeville--the Fran Gormley show in particular! It should not be missed.
