My Birthday Weekend.

I had such a lovely birthday weekend. The weather was perfect, nothing was rushed, and I got to spend time with some great people. On Saturday I got a birthday manicure and the family took me out for dinner at Koto Izakaya. We ate some amazing Japanese food and then this mint chocolate + stracciatella gelato situation happened…

On Sunday I drove to Shawnigan Lake with Christine and spent the day swimming and lounging at one of my favourite places. You know those spots that make you feel safe and relaxed whenever you’re there? My friend has a beautiful home on the lake and it’s one of those special places where I can really escape. I was so happy to spend the day there and I was spoiled with a gorgeous cake, a beautiful bouquet of sweet peas that smelled beyond amazing, and some new makeup goodies (!!!!). It was exactly how I wanted to spend my birthday. I mean look at this cake…
