One year older...and wiser too?

This past Saturday I celebrated my 25th birthday! It was such a great day.

First, I woke up and Justin had this beautiful bouquet on the counter for me with a birthday letter from him. Then he and my mom made a wonderful breakfast! We had yummy french toast with syrup, whip cream and strawberries. Everything was made from scratch (minus the whip cream). It was sooo delicious!

For lunch I met with my friends Brooke and Sara for lunch. We had Zupa's and I had my favorite: summer chicken salad with the tomato basil soup! Yum-o!

Then that night Justin made us dinner plans and it was beautiful!

It was such a beautiful day! And the grounds were gorgeous!

Last Sunday the family celebrated mine and Todd's birthdays. Todd is 8 years and 5 days older than me (Sept. 22nd).
Most of the fam (I took the pic, and Justin was on the trampoline with some of the kids)

Todd chose to have egg rolls and stirfry with peach cobbler for dessert.
Can you tell I like food?! It's fun centering your life around good food, is it not? Well there you go. That's a bday recap for ya! Thanks to everyone for the gifts, calls, and birthday wishes! I have such a great family and many wonderful friends who are so thoughtful and make life that much more great!!
