my birthday celebrations were fantastic.

great friends; scrumptious food; merriment.

perfection, really.

here’s a sample of the goodness.



thanks to susan for making the coolest cake i have EVER had made just for me (caveat included because we did have a pretty cool wedding cake); and to andrea, the perfect hostess and friend, who was also the brainchild behind the veggie themed cake and all vegetarian menu. (complete with gluten and nut free options!)

the veggie feast was sunday, and monday we got together with more friends for drinks (where we brought the remainder of the cake, and took turns eating it outside of the restaurant on a bench to avoid the $2/plate fee. yeah! take that MAN! consider yourself stuck it to!).

both days were such great fun; they totally lived up to my “golden day” expectations!

thanks friends!
