we’re currently in los angeles right now visiting friends and enjoying a little bit of that west coast summer. i also turned 29 years old yesterday (what the what) so we had an extra fun day in LA eating way too many treats and bursting out into the “happy birthday” song multiple times throughout the day.
i’ll share more later, but wanted to pop in and post some photos from our day yesterday! my family sure knows how to spoil me and make me feel so special. being with them, and having them in my life, it’s what makes me the happiest. grateful for every day with them and for all the love and kisses and drawings and happy birthday singing and extra hugs from my little crew. love them so…
birthday donuts from california donuts! delicious!
these dear friends of ours have been the best hosts. they know how to do LA and while we miss them in new york, we couldn’t be more proud of all they are up to.
the best birthday gifts in all the world are homemade cards and drawings. that’s a viking ship, by the way. ;)
flowers from my love! (they matched the flowers on my birthday cake! which kind of was such a thoughtful detail, it made my night!)
an afternoon at the observatory! and falling down and putting bandaids on “pretend” boo-boo’s to make them feel better. ;)
and not pictured is the meltdown that a sweet someone had as we left the observatory. the words “i’m not liking my family!” might have been shouted. just thought it was worth mentioning for my own memory sake and also lest you think we don’t experience moments such as those on occasion around here. it happens.
thank you to everyone for the kind birthday wishes and messages yesterday! it made my day all the more wonderful. i have a lot of thoughts on getting older and sometimes i’m not sure i’m up for all this growing up and growing old stuff, but 28 was a good year and i can’t wait to see what this next year has in store! hopefully a faster metabolism?! lol. a girl can dream.
