Had a number of friends with birthdays in July and August (don't know what that says about the parental generation and the autumn/winter months), and thoroughly enjoyed scouring the internet for the perfect cards for each (and stocking the stash, a favored hobby of mine). Came across these Signe Sugar decorations via Design Sponge at the beginning of the month, so this is somewhat dated/I'm sure many have already seen them, but I think they'd make for an even prettier present than most.
Oh! And I almost forgot another very special July birthday... About a month ago my sister finally pushed out her child spawn, making me an auntie/godmother for the first time over. I'm not an overly sentimental person and am slow to fawn over children (sorry, working with the youth of the East Coast for almost a decade now has turned my heart to stone), but he's pretty cute. I'll get used to this new dynamic some day, though as you can see in the latter (sheisty phone) photo, Lola already has. And from what I've been reading these past few months, there are so many new (slash repeat) mommies on the internet...congrats to you all!
