Twenty-Seven Candles

That's right, the big 2-7! It's birthday week for this girl! It's been a whirlwind so far...and nothing short of amazing.

B and I went to Vegas for Labor Day weekend and got some much needed family time with my parents and little brother. The weekend had all the perfect ingredients, relaxation, watching football, shopping with mom, a barbecue, a trip to the lake and a visit to see B's sister and her family! The weekends are just too short when you are having fun. My parents are incredible. I hate the goodbye part, no matter how old you are, it's still hard.

After getting back home and situated, Tuesday night we did a b-day dinner with my closest friends. Again, just what I wanted, good food, friends, conversation, and of course cake. Last night was my night with B, just us. It was wonderful. Simple and perfect. Thoughtful doesn't even do him justice. The man is incredible. Every little detail I tell you, he makes me feel special, adored and so incredibly loved. He likes funny stupid cards, I love mushy "grandma" cards, what does he get me? You know it, bring on the mush. I love him with all my heart.

Tonight I am heading to San Francisco for a little girls trip. I'm so excited to see the city. The agenda: Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, Napa, hiking in the Redwood Forest, shopping etc. 

I love birthdays because I love making people feel good. Birthday's are the one time of year that you can really make someone feel special. This year I feel very special. All the people that surround me are incredible. My roommate and best friend leaving flowers and a super yummy smelling house when I came home to my great coworkers baking and bringing in flowers and balloons, they all are so sweet. The gifts, the material things received are not the point, the point is that each person around me is so thoughtful. I am who I am because of these people around me. Thank you to all the wonderful people in my life, I am oh so lucky to have you all. I appreciate and cherish you more that you'll ever know.

 I'm so happy I have this little blog to remind me of all the memories I've had...and all the ones in the year ahead!
Welcome 27, I'm ready for you!
