Be sure to watch your clocks – today at exactly 6:29pm, I will turn 27 years old. It is hard to believe that I am in my late 20’s. I don’t know if it is because I have a younger sister or maybe I’m just crazy – but for some reason it is hard for me to believe I am a day over 22. Weird, I know. But what a wonderful birthday it has been this year. I am so thankful for my family and friends that have made me feel truly special. Here are a few pictures:
The hubs and I before our Friday night date night – dinner & a movie at McMenamins.
After a full day of shopping in Portland on Saturday with my mom, aunt, and friend Molly – I woke up to this beautiful bouquet of flowers and a sweet, sweet card in our bedroom from my hubs. He woke up very early this morning in order to surprise me on my birthday. While I won’t post his words on here, I will share that the hubs made me feel so so very loved.
A birthday cannot be complete without cake (or cupcakes). I decided to whip up some red velvet & cream cheese frosting cupcakes today to share with my parents, after we met up for a Sunday Birthday luncheon. They were absolutely delish. The hubs told me that he felt bad that I made my own birthday cake and that next year he and our baby would whip something up for me. Just picturing this idea in my mind makes me so excited – I cannot wait.
What a great birthday. I love and appreciate everything and everyone involved.
