Happy Birthday!

I'm not going to lie. I was a little bummed when my birthday plans fell through. I'm always on a "grand" trip for my birthday. 
When I turned 16, I was in Costa Rica. 

When I was 18, I was in Europe...specially on my actual birthday, I was in Venice, riding a Gondola!

The year I turned 19, I was in Mexico...

 Last year, I went to the Keys. 

But this year, they fell through. That's ok. I still had a great birthday!

Where else does one go for their birthday?? It was a perfect beach day. 

Spent the day with my girl, Jolyn...drinks on the beach...not a bad day!

Then lunch at Cantinas Dos Amigos....yum!

Then, came home and was surprised by a cake...and song by my 3 year old.

And MORE dessert! This was a pastachiotta. Jolyn made it...from scratch. It's a classic Italian dessert. SO YUM!! I tried finding a recipe online, but I couldn't 
(I don't' think she spelled it right when she told me what it was...lol)

And how did I end the night??? With a little snuggle from B. I hope this never ends....

I still love when Autumn even comes into our bed and snuggles up with me. I know it won't last forever, so I am trying to enjoy it while it lasts!


  1. Sounds like a perfect birthday!

  2. Sounds like a fun birthday to me! I swear you and your daughter could be twins...

    I LOVE to bake, so I asked my friend Mr. Google and he said your friend's tarts are called pasticiotti...so if you get her recipe please let me know!
