Ahoy! Today is my baby cat’s birthday! Little Mabel turns three today and we are celebrating by cleaning the entire old apartment and trying to unpack some of the new house. Probably not as fun as she’d like, but we’ll give her toys and treats throughout the day and she won’t notice. Happy birthday, Peanut! You are the silliest cat in the whole world!
P.S.- It also be ‘Talk Like A Pirate Day’ t’day, so ye best be talkin’ like a pirate! Arrrrr!

We popped in and out of shops selling adorable crafts and vintage pieces for way less than they should be selling them (or at least way less than I’ve seen similar things sold here in Phila!), and had lunch and ice cream.. three times.
