Wednesday was such a magical day. From start to finish, all moments of the day were happy and full of love. Waking up to presents from my husband then arriving to the office only to find my desk covered in colorful gift bags with goodies inside. Handwritten cards that say all the wonderful things that make my heart smile and cupcakes that are just as pretty as they are sweet. The day was capped off with a delicious dinner date at one of my favorite restaurants. It was romantic and simply perfect. And before bed, the sweetest little macarons, specially chosen in my favorite flavors.

It’s funny when your family and friends know you so well that it shines through during special occasions and gifts. Same color scheme, same store… It’s great! From a gorgeous springtime Kate Spade scarf to a Kendra Scott cuff and necklace, my accessory collection is now prettier than ever. I was also gifted a metallic mug, new essie polish, colorful beaded bracelet, scented candles, gift cards to do some damage at my favorite store and more girly things that are so perfectly me.

I’m so thankful to be surrounded by people who care as much about birthdays as I do. As a child, we always celebrated our birthdays with cakes and parties and friends and family. It’s something that I cherish to this day. For many, a birthday card or going out to dinner was the birthday celebration. But for me, it’s about finding those gifts that have sentiment, thought and really remind me of someone special. Your birthday only comes around once a year… might as well make it memorable. And all of my family and friends did that for me — they made my birthday so very sweet and special. I couldn’t feel luckier.

Thank you to everyone for all of the birthday emails, texts, calls and wishes on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! Life is so very sweet. That’s for certain.
