Twenty Five

I turned twenty five yesterday. Twenty five. (Yikes!) When did that happen? It feels like just yesterday I got behind the wheel of the coolest '98 black volvo for the first time. 

The last couple years I've been celebrating a handful of weddings over the holiday weekend and haven't been able to have any sort of birthday get together. This year was different. With Kate's help, I decided to throw a "breakfast for dinner" dinner party (Thank you pinterest!) with my closest friends. I think the best part of the night was being able to see so many people I love in one room. I couldn't stop smiling.

Here are some highlights from the celebration! 

Hand-made rubber stamped invitations. 

Make your own mimosa bar!
Choice of Orange (Tropicana), Pomegranate Limeade (Trader Joe's), or Orange Banana Pineapple Juice (Dole)... Add some champagne (or proseco) and fruit and call it a day.

The one long table was perfection. There really is nothing like sitting down together and sharing a meal.
It was fun to see it finally come together so well. 

My family came to celebrate too. Aren't they a good looking bunch? I think so.
I also realized that the only pictures I've posted of myself I'm wearing stripes and a scarf.
I promise, I wear other things too.

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes.  I cannot tell you how loved and celebrated I felt yesterday. I've really got a lot to be grateful for.
