If you would have told my 16 year old self that I would look forward to turning another year older….I would have laughed in your face. Now-a-days I look forward to growing older, which is all subject to change at 30, get back to me then. Seriously, I am looking forward to this next year of my life. I have some really good feelings about this 26th year of life.
Now on to the celebrations! I
rather enjoy LOVE my birthday! I start a countdown a month before the big day. My original plans were to go to Banner Elk, NC, sip wine, enjoy the cold weather and hang out with three awesome ladies. Well those plans came to a halt so instead two of my favorites came up from Athens, Kimmy and Anna, to spend the weekend and celebrate my happy day.
Friday was low-key with dinner and drinks. Saturday we went shopping and I picked up two goodies from J.Crew with my gift card from Anna.
After shopping we grabbed a late lunch and then went back to my apt to get ready. We had dinner at Basil (YUM) and went to Connollys for
a few drinks afterwards. I had an absolute blast and so thankful for all my friends who came and celebrated my birthday with me. It was an amazing evening!
My grandmother made my tulle skirt for me and I could not love it more! The clutch was my birthday present from Kimmy.
Ladies meet my friend Jeff, he is single!
After we finished our night in Uptown, we headed back to my apartment to enjoy a piece of the cake Thomas made for my birthday! Please note not only was everything on this cake handmade but it was DELICIOUS.
Inside is a layer of chocolate and a layer of strawberry cake, buttercream frosting and chocolate covered strawberries on top.
Seriously, could not have asked for a better way to spend my birthday. To each and everyone that came, THANK YOU! You each made my day extra special and I so happy I have the best group of friends.
