Birthday Celebrations

My birthday was on Wednesday, and I am so grateful to everyone who helped to make a pretty busy day feel a little more special. I'm thankful for anyone who took the 30 seconds to write a Facebook message, or to my friends who text-spammed me with "Happy Birthday" GIFs.

I love my cute husband who bought me special cake, brownies, and flowers. I love my parents who took me out to dinner and my in-laws who came along for the celebration. I love my mom, who made a huge chocolate cake just for me. And I even love my editor, who let me take a few hours off to enjoy the day. I was even able to get a little nap in! 

Here's a couple snapshots from the celebrations! 

We visited one of my favorite local digs and I got a free (GIANT) float. Thankfully, Kevin was more than willing to drink it for me.

I don't drink coffee, but Crio Bru is pretty much the best thing ever. My husband knows I have a problem.

I've been SO busy lately that I haven't had time to finish any of the posts that I've started. The house gets a little dirtier each weekday until I have time Saturday mornings to do a massive cleaning, and I've only just started to catch up on a month's worth of ironing...I know. It's bad. 

There are lots of good things happening, though! Make sure to check my portfolio page to see some of my more recent publications. I'm writing about fashion and trends right now, and it's been a lot of work. Fun work about a topic I enjoy, but still a lot of work. I'll be grateful when May comes around and we take off for Iceland!
