ma birfday.

ONE QUARTER OF A CENTURY. Wow.

Cinco de Mayo started out a tad bit disappointing, to be honest. I had a hunch, having followed the weather all week, that it was going to rain on my birthday. I did not, however, realize just how cold it was supposed to be and just how much it would rain and that said rain would continue almost without a break all day! Let me set the stage for you: usually the weather is absolutely gorgeous on my birthday. There are lots of flowers involved and sunshine and warm weather and outside and springy clothing and sandals. This year there was rain and large gusts of wind and jackets and boots and wool socks.

BUT! (And this is a big but … har har har.) It was a truly wonderful birthday!

Rubbish weather

The day started out with some quintessential music. Followed by the crepe-master in his element! Scott has really become quite the pro. We had delicious crepes with nutella, raspberries, mango, and powdered sugar. Perfection!

Crepe fixins!

Birthday candle!

After a gloriously lazy afternoon we headed downtown for some more celebrating! Had dinner at Mamacitas and a little party at the French Broad Chocolate Lounge. Thanks to all my friends who came to help me celebrate and brought fun games to play! It was so much fun to relax and hang out with everyone.

Suspend - the game

Friends.

And of course, thanks to this handsome guy for making me feel so special and for lighting so many birthday candles! You are my favorite and I am so lucky to be with you! Thanks for everything you do!

My sweetheart

P.S. Thanks for the love from all around the country! I loved getting to chat with everyone who called. Long-distance love!

  1. I can totally see you standing on your chair to take the picture of your breakfast spread. I also love the picture of Emily and the game on the table looks really fun! I’m so glad you didn’t let the cold and rain dampen (haha) your celebration! Love you!
