Today is my twenty-fifth birthday! Hooray!
I recently watched the movie Sixteen Candles- classic- where Sam (Molly Ringwald) stares at herself in the mirror on her 16th birthday wondering why she didn’t wake up and feel a big change. Like Sam, I didn’t wake up this morning feeling any big change, but I did wake up feeling incredibly loved.
On Friday, there was a surprise engagement party for one of my college roommates, Lana. It was so wonderful to be there to celebrate she and her fiancee’s engagement. Saturday morning, my very own prince charming whisked me away to a day at the spa which was such a treat and incredibly relaxing. Since we were already downtown, we headed over to Noodlecat for lunch for some noodles and steamed buns (mmm). That evening a few friends hit the Mountain Movers launch party which was a hit and then finished out the night on the patio at Townhall. I love that it’s finally warm enough to wear a summer dress and enjoy a night on a patio.
And yesterday. Yesterday I had one of the best surprises of my life. I was told to be ready by noon and as we punched the address into the GPS, I figured out that we were headed to Flour, one of my very favorite brunch spots. I swoon for their flat bread panini and of course, bellini. As we walked to our table, I was surprised with the greatest group of friends waiting at a giant table hidden behind a curtain that divided the restaurant. For someone who is pretty good picking up hints, I was completely surprised. I even got my very first ice cream birthday cake!
After brunch, we headed to play some sand volleyball and lounge at the pool to soak up some sun!
I am feeling truly blessed.
With confetti in my hair, champagne in my hand and love in my heart
