This post is dedicated to the fabulous Little Miss Sunshine State.

A couple of days ago I received an email from blackbird which contained a forwarded email from Little Miss Sunshine State. LMSS had heard that I was going to be visiting Boston, and so she wanted to pass on a recommendation:

Would you tell her that she might like to see the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum http://www.gardnermuseum.org/
while she is in Boston. It is really a little gem, tucked on a side street near the Museum of Fine Arts in the Longwood area.


Well. OH MY.

Thanks to the fabulous LMSS, I spent the first day of 2010 (my birthday) here:


Thank you dear new blog-friend, from the bottom of my heart.

What a fun way to spend your birthday! The museum looks amazing...just finished watching the video, too. Now I want to start a museum of my own. A dustball museum, maybe. A whole-house installation called, "Filthy, Dirty House." Please come visit my museum. For a small fee. A beer, perhaps.

LMSS wins as best birthday museum finder!! Yay!!

Oh, Eleanor!
I'm so thrilled that you loved the museum.

So, I've missed you through the Holidays AND your birthday. BOO for me.
But you know what?
I hate you right now. You are in my city. MY CITY. I am green with envy and biting my tongue while muttering.

OK, I said it. Now I can tell you how happy I am you'll be meeting with my little bb and family, they are the best.
Also, you look adoringly happy in all the pics, especially the one with your hubby.

ENJOY!
