Birthday RecapTuesday, September 18, 2012
Another year has come and gone, but this time, my 20s are officially behind me. It's a strange feeling. My 30th was the best birthday I've had so far. I felt so loved and am very grateful for all the birthday wishes. I have to take a moment to thank Alaina
for putting so much love and thought into my birthday. She arranged
Saturday night at Old Town Social, made last night's reservations at
Paris Club, and gave me three of the most thought out gifts I've ever
received. Each gift was wrapped in pink paper with bakers twine
and little tags that read:
1. For your home, your haven (the Jayson vase)
2. For your health and peace of mind (the lulu top)
3. For your creativity and wanderlust (Paris versus New York)
Seriously – she gets me. I suppose that's what happens when you talk to someone every day for a year and love all the same things. She put so much love into each gift and made my birthday so special. I love that girl so much.
Massage, Sheila | Ticket to Paris + London and flowers, Mom | Lulu top, book, and vase, Alaina | Top and bracelet, me
And yes, you read that correctly. My mom is giving me a round trip ticket to PARIS + LONDON! Nothing is booked, but it's going to happen. Who wants to join me?
And now for a recap of my weekend. It all began on Saturday morning. I went to CrossFit, out to lunch, and did some shopping with a friend. That evening I met a group of friends at Old Town Social to celebrate my birthday. Gina was at a wedding 1.5 hours away and still managed to make it out on Saturday night. Aside from completely changing my life by introducing me to CrossFit, she has become one of my closest friends. I love her.
