Twenty Eight.

Today is my 28th birthday.  While some awesome things happened while I was 27, I have a feeling 28 will be the best one yet.

This year’s birthday was a little different than birthdays past.  Just low-key birthday dinner and birthday breakfast with some of the people I love.  We are traveling later this week and have a wedding to attend, so there will be a lot to celebrate over the next few days.

Something that I am determined to do more of this year is travel.  I love exploring new places (and food!) and did not get to do nearly enough of that this past year.  Fortunately my first few days of being 28 will involve a trip and hopefully more to come.

One thing that always remains constant on my birthday is a delicious birthday cake.  And thanks to the Englishman, this year was no different.  He made this delicious cake, and it was enjoyed with some Greek frozen yogurt while watching the closing ceremony of the Olympics.  Not a bad way to spend my birthday at all.

Bring it on 28!  I can’t wait to see what you have in store for me this year.

Weekend Snapshots

Is anyone else having a hard time believing we are over halfway through summer?  I mean, August starts this week!  I still have a lot of summer-y things to do including have a bonfire at the beach, make sangria, go bike riding either to or along the ocean, and figure out how to make corn syrup-free marshmallows so I can enjoy some smores.  Thankfully summer seems to last into September in Southern California, so I suppose I have a little extra time.

This past weekend was filled with good eats, good friends, and scoring a good deal on a dress to wear to a wedding I am attending in Colorado next month.  All in all, not too shabby of a weekend.  Instead of a play-by-play, let’s let the pictures speak for themselves.
