It was my mom’s birthday, but it felt like the gifts were all mine.  I feel so lucky and blessed to have had the perfect day with the people I love most in this world.  Afraid to go to sleep because then they will go home tomorrow.  It always goes by too quickly…

I just have to say that Indy is adorable – helping blow out the candles, and chilling on the couch is so cute!!

This is precious!

awe i LOVE birthdays! and it looks like everyone had fun going around DC. I did an internship on Capitol Hill this summer and it was a bit too hot for me to do too much exploring.
I would definitely love to come back in the fall and walk around more without risking melting into the sidewalk!



Beth     at 1:01 pm

What a great day! Happy birthday to your mom.


Maryann     at 2:26 pm

Happy BD to your Mom. Mine was Saturday.
Can’t believe you got up on that counter. Wow with your knee. Everything looks like a great delicious time. Enjoy every day to the fullest.

Haha! I love that you captured that couple’s engagement! Watch, someone who knows them reads your blog and they will feel uber cool when they see they were a part of your post!
