Did you have a nice weekend, dolls? Today’s my birthday (hooray for making it another year!), so we spent my birthday weekend doing lots of happy things like going vintage bowling in Pioneer Town to having the best $5 chicken sandwiches and lemonades amongst bikers and families at Pappy and Harriet’s.

Along the way, we spotted sweet cotton-tail bunnies, roadrunners and balloons floating in the sky in the high desert. ‘Twas magical, my lovelies.

Today, after work, we’ll hike and picnic among the yellow and lilac wildflowers and hope not to get bitten by a rattlesnake (we spotted one on our last hike – yikes!). Soon, we’ll have a place to call home for the next few months, and once we do, I’d like to throw a celebration as wonderful and memorable as the renegade parties that Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day throws. Oh my, does this girl have imagination or what.

From dinner parties with friends on piers and rooftops to scavenger hunts in Mini Coopers that end in color dye fights in front of the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco event planner and blogger serves up tons of inspiration (from other party planners and friends too). Wouldn’t you like to be her bestie? I would!

While I wait on my bestie to finish up work today, I’ll be taking a trip down memory lane and picking out photo highlights from the past year to share with you (time permitting). It’s always a great way to realize how lucky you are (that and all of the Facebook birthday wishes when you tear up at all the memories and nicknames that take you back to different parts of your life). I’m a sentimental fool, I know. Are you too? What has been the highlight of your year so far? Sending hugs to you for helping to make another year so magical xx!
