Twenty-Five Candles

October 21st, 2013 § 4 comments

A few weeks ago, I passed a big milestone… the big two-five.  It wasn’t the easiest of birthdays to approach honestly – in fact, I think it was the first year of my life that I wasn’t excited for October 1st to roll around.  So many things haven’t gone my way in the past year, and I think I got caught up in the feeling that I hadn’t accomplished enough to be entering my second quarter-century.

But then October 1st came. I spent the day in my new favorite city, surrounded by my New York friends and family who I love more than I can explain. I felt cherished, loved, and happier than I have in a long time. I can’t even express how grateful I am to each and every person who made turning 25 one of the best experiences of my life – each person who completely turned around my little pity party in a matter of moments and reminded me what’s really important.

And guys… can we talk about this cake?!

This beautiful design was created by Sweet Corner Bakeshop, and given to me by my dear, amazing friend Ben.  It was an incredible surprise and an amazing gift. Thank you, thank you to Rodolfo at Sweet Corner for making this stunning cake and making my birthday party such a special event.

And thanks to all of you for your continuous love and support… it means the world to me.

Here’s to 25!! May it be the best year yet.
