Hello!  How was everyone’s Memorial Day weekend?  I spent the weekend in LA visiting the hubby’s family and attending a friend’s birthday pool party.  Since my birthday had just passed, we also celebrated with a super-cool and hip dinner at Ink. in West Hollywood.  From cocktails to apps to main course and dessert, everything was so delicious!  More photos to come on the food we ordered and who the restaurant’s main chef is…

This was the outfit I wore for the birthday dinner.  I decided to get creative and put together two ‘oldies but goodies’ pieces from my closet to create something different: a floral spaghetti strap dress + a long sweater vest in a complimentary color.  I love my Prabal Gurung for Target strappy sandals and thought the hint of neon was perfect for the outfit.  All in all, I had a blast celebrating my birthday in LA!

A Year Older…

Today I turn another year older.  Wiser?  Maybe.  It’s amazing how time flies.  Just the other day I was still in graduate (business) school, among amazing, smart people, trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my career.  Then I moved to the Bay Area, looking for a new job all while planning a wedding.  Fast forward a couple of years and I am here: married to the most patient and loving husband, living in one of the happiest cities in the country, and doing pretty well with my career.  So, what’s next?  This conversation most likely deserves a glass of wine and a few hours of your time, but for now I feel…content.  Yes, there are still many more goals to achieve, places to visit, and wine to be had, of course.  And there’s the talk of starting a family.  Breaking away from the ‘planner’ that I’ve always been, I’d like to try something different this next year.  Live life to the fullest and with a passion and see where things take me.  Happy birthday to all May birthdays!

Thanks for indulging me in a more personal post today.  Hope you’re off to a wonderful Thursday! xoxo
