we all live in a yellow submarine

today is marko's birthday. apparently it is also rosie o'donnell and kevin federline's, which i think, for those of you who know marko, is evidence enough that astrology isn't all it's cracked up to be. he isn't much of a birthday man, preferring to let the day pass mostly unnoticed. i tried to oblige but i couldn't let it go completely. you see, for many years i have always fantasized about one day having children that would colour me pictures and make me birthday cards, there would be macaroni and sparkles everywhere, but the result would be perfect to me. i clung to this idea so strongly that i kept many of my nieces masterpieces and hung them on the fridge, dreaming of the day. so now that we are here and it is marko's first birthday as a dad i couldn't resist the opportunity to create with the little creature. i can't wait until the day when him and i can sit down and colour together, but until that day a washable ink pad and his hand prints will have to do. so, happy birthday to you!

oh, and happy spring everyone, may all of your days be sunny from here on out!
