Birthdays are such a wonderful reminder of the amazing friends and family who surround me. I felt so loved yesterday! Thank you to all that made yesterday an absolutely fantastic day!

When I was thinking about birthday stuff, I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to have a party. We’re only a couple of months post-wedding and that sort of cleared the “party planning” out of my system. But then I started thinking about an ice cream bar, and suddenly I knew this had to happen. Friends and ice cream? This needed to happen.

And of course, you need a whole bunch of friends to help you eat it all.

Last year certainly was a wonderful year but something tells me 26 is going to be pretty grand!

What was the best birthday party you ever had?
