My birthday totally snuck up on me this year. In fact, I don’t know where the last few months have gone! Turning twenty seven doesn’t necessarily seem like a milestone year, but for some reason it feels like a big step towards truly calling myself an “adult”. I’m excited to see what the year brings!


Celebrating with friends (and family) was the perfect way to kick off the next year. The weather is always iffy in the beginning of May, so I was a bit overzealous when I suggested we have drinks ‘al fresco’… My wonderful friends humored me and we braced the cold for about half an hour once the sun went down, then ran inside.


It was a fairly relaxed atmosphere, but the one thing I did want was fun centerpieces for the outdoor tables. Things are starting to turn green/bloom around here, but fresh cut flowers always make me happy. These Pinterest-inspired arrangements turned out perfectly!




Cheers to 27!
