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
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.
How wonderful that we have a little "blackbird" in our lives!
Happy Birthday and Happy New Year.

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.
