Birthday Hangover

But not a real hangover. For those who don't know, yesterday was my birthday. Last year I did a whole birthday week series of posts and if you missed those, you can go back and check out some great pictures of me as a kid:

This year's birthday was pretty low key, which was lovely. Saturday we went to Cray, a fairly new restaurant/bar in walking distance. I started off with this, a spiced apple cider. Yum.

Saturday night we had a wonderful homemade dinner with friends, complete with candles on the dessert (not ALL the candles, thankfully).

Sunday we sang at church and had a rehearsal, then Aaron dropped me off at home so I could nap while he went to the store to get dinner supplies.

Settling in for the birthday nap with Bella

My dinner request was Aaron's homemade mac & cheese and it was perfection on a rainy night!

Thank you to everyone who sent birthday greetings, whether by Facebook, phone call, text or tweet! Even Google got in the action:

Kinda cute, kinda creepy

But of course, this was also a bittersweet birthday. There's that phone call that will never come again. This begins the year of firsts and it hit me harder than I thought it would, so again I thank all of you even more for showering me with good wishes and love. xoxo


  1. Happy belated Birthday, friend! I'm glad you got to have a lowkey celebration, complete with mac and cheese (yum!) Still thinking of you and your fam a lot :)

  2. Happy belated Birthday lady! Mac-n-cheese sounds so good right now!

  3. I'm glad you have an enjoyable, but low key birthday weekend. Sometimes those are the best! I wish I had the words to ease you pain as we most into the holiday season, just know that I love you! <3 <3
