Nashville and Birthday Musings

This past weekend I turned 26 and got to spend the weekend roaming around Nashville with my love to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary. I have to say, I felt super spoiled and loved on by so many. I really appreciate all your kind words, messages and thoughts. This year has probably been one of the first birthday’s I haven’t been super thrilled about turning another year older. I wanted to be 25 forever.

Bohemian Birthday Bash

Three of our close friends had birthdays recently. Two of them were turning a quarter of a century and the other 26, so we decided to celebrate them all together with a big birthday bash. The weather has been incredible lately, so we decided to have the party in our backyard with plenty of room for outdoor games. We wanted it to be low-key, but still have an eclectic feel. I asked Ian to build a large farmhouse table that would be low to the ground, so that we could all sit on the grass around it. He built the top…
