Happiest Birthday to You

I want to wish the happiest of birthdays to my amazing husband! Dylan, I hope you and Gavin have the best day today and I can’t wait to celebrate more tonight!

Back-story: I plotted with Dylan’s younger brother, Gavin, to surprise him and come to DC for the day from NY. Dylan almost jumped out of his skin last night when there was a knock on the door at 11:30pm and Gavin was standing there. It was SOOO great. I had told Dylan to take today off because I had something planned so now the two of them have the day together to wander around DC :)

Happy Birthday!!

Speaking of BFFs, tomorrow is Nikki‘s birthday! As most of you might already know, we’ve been the best of friends since we were 7. We always get very, very excited  for our birthdays, which are coincidentally only about a month apart.  Currently we are not living in the same state, but having grown to be like sisters, we are really never very far apart. I am so blessed to have her in my life and am so happy to celebrate another year of her wonderful self!

I wish you…

the most perfect cup of coffee to start your day


fun times and delicious treats with the people you love
