Yesterday was my birthday! My golden birthday. We had a really nice, relaxing day. Andy made me breakfast in bed before he left for work, which was such a treat. When he got home later in the afternoon, we walked into town for coffee & ice cream (because I couldn’t choose just one obviously). And then the plan was to go out for dinner. (A fun dinner is always our birthday tradition. No big to-do or party. Just a nice dinner out together. Just the two of us.) But… it was a rainy and gloomy night, so we ditched our plans and ordered indian food, lit some candles, and cuddled up on the couch to watch Scandal (we’ve been binge-watching and we’re hooked). It was pretty perfect. Takin’ a rain check on that dinner though. 😉

24 was one of my best years yet. It wasn’t without it’s bumps along the way… but it was a pretty special year for the Roses. 24 is when I became a wife. Add in a move to England, a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Maldives, and a wonderful summer spent with family and friends (France, Seattle, & San Francisco), and a new blog! Feeling so so lucky for this life and the people in it. Cheers to you 24.

I can’t wait to see what 25 has in store. Thanks for all the birthday wishes! And as always, cheers to life’s adventures!
