a birthday and…a little under the weather

my birthday was wonderful. i feel so blessed to have been surrounded by amazing co-workers, family, and friends…for so many days in a row. it was one of the best birthdays ever…if I had to choose.


walked into my classroom to find this! so happy!


Hydrangeas and a cake surprise from j! Love that boy so so much!


some birthday Tory love!

Mussels & pomme frites with my girlfriends at la crepe nanou for my birthday dinner!

Sunday brunch at eat with j…best biscuit ever! we loved it so much…j had the most perfect crab cakes with poached eggs on top…

It was a wonderful birthday and now I’m home from work a little under the weather. My day looks a lot like this…


happy tuesday!



this weekend was lovely and low key. friday night I went to dinner at my best friend + her (new!) husbands home for a taco dinner. it was so good to laugh and look at pictures from their sweet honeymoon.

Saturday i got to spend time with my love before he went to work for the night. and! I celebrated national coffee day…naturally I needed a venti pumpkin spice iced coffee to celebrate.


Sunday was church, a birthday brunch at the fantastic cafe degas for a dear friend, and walked our pup, jack!




It was a wonderful, lovely weekend and I can’t wait for the next! (especially since this Thursday is my birthday!!! Which means this week is birthday week and there are many festivities planned for the weekend)…happy, happy!!
