Last week was…my birthday week! Yep, I’m one of those people that makes her family and friends to celebrate it for 7 days :) But hey, it’s better than the birthday-month-kind-of-people, right? Thanks to my favorite people, turning 31 wasn’t so bad when bundled with gorgeous flowers, sweet treats, kind messages, and even a night out at America’s Test Kitchen Live! (Fun fact: Did you know that ATK spends 6 weeks to perfect each recipe and spends $500,000 per year on just ingredients?!)
The birthday fun continued into the weekend as the bf whisked me away for a Big Sur birthday weekend. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with spending time outside the city. I’m usually pretty tolerable of city life, especially in SF, but lately the traffic, non-stop construction, and more have just been getting to me. Fortunately, I got the escape I was hoping! We camped, surfed, cooked and more. With no cell service and a real desire to disconnect, I barely had my phone out…well, unless I was taking pictures.
