Today is my 24th birthday. My oh my how time flies. I have so much to be thankful for, my birthday is just a cherry on top of all that is happening in my life right now.

While I was 23...
  • I got a new job that I enjoy and absolutely has made me a happier person.
  • I became an aunt (again, twice!) in the last year.
  • I traveled to San Francisco, Washington DC and Baltimore.
  • I visited Santa Monica twice, on the second trip TF and I found our new home.
  • I got engaged to my best friend.
  • We found our church and reception spot for our wedding day.

All incredible things that I'm so proud and grateful for. Since my birthday lands on a Monday, what did I do over the weekend, you ask?

Friday night, my girlfriends and I had planned to go out on the town to celebrate, however after a looonng week I was pooped and we ended up enjoying wine, boardgames and much-needed gabbing. It was a blast. :)

Flowers and yummy cupcakes were waiting for me when I arrived home from TF.

Saturday, we cleaned (fun, right?), Tarshay'd it up, attended Mass at the church we'll be married in then enjoyed a delicious meal at Kith & Kin in Lincoln Park.

Sunday, TF made me a big yummy breakfast then surprised me with a trip to the
Shedd Aquarium where we saw the penguins, dolphins and whales (oh, my!).

We then enjoyed a lovely lunch at The Purple Pig and I scored some great pieces at J. Crew if I do say so myself.

Today, I'm not sure what we're doing. TF won't tell me where we're going to dinner, but boy am I excited!

I can't wait to see what 24 will bring.
Have a fantastic day everyone.
