I bought a new dress and lipstick,

I got my makeup done,

I rolled in balloons,

 I finished everyone’s steak at dinner.

I am officially 34. THIRTY- FOUR!!!! I’m not sure how adulthood is flying by so quickly, but I think it’s safe to say that our move to Nashville almost 2 years ago, a house purchase/project, and a 10 month old baby played a part. Ha!

This year I got spoiled by my girlfriends with a night out for my birthday, while my loving husband stayed home with baby Emma. We did all the best girly things…drank bubbly, nibbled on macarons, went to a nice French spot {Le Sel} for dinner, played in a sea of balloons, took polaroid pics, and laughed a lot. Does it get any better?!

This was such a treat and allowed me to really enjoy the day. It’s taken a while because my birthday was forever changed 2 years ago when I miscarried our first baby. Yes, it happened on my birthday. Now April 26th will forever be bitter sweet. The experience reminded me how important it is to truly celebrate life. Last year my baby shower was a week before my birthday, and this year I get to hold my precious baby girl while we celebrate.

Thank you to my dear friends, Bethany and Muna, for planning such a memorable evening. Love you babes forever! X
