A Happy Birthday Week

birthday cake

This last week was BIRTHDAY WEEK!

On Friday I turned 26. I had already thought I was 26 so I was very surprised to turn 26 again. ;)

My amazing husband, friends, and family helped to celebrate with small gifts throughout the week. If you don't celebrate birthday week I highly recommend it. Thank you for making a gal feel so special! I am beyond blessed to have you in my life.

Phil, you are incredible. Thank you for making this such a special birthday week. I love you so much.

Thank you, Lord, for another wonderful year!

P.S. - This is the world's best carrot cake. I do realize that is a ridiculous statement because it's my own recipe. But DANG IT'S GOOD!!!

    I keep thinking I am turning 26 later this month but no... I'm actually almost 28. Kinda in denial that I am in my late 20s now haha.

      I'm officially freaking out.

    1. Yes you should! Birthday week means you get little gifts throughout the week... like your favorite candy or something, then dinner or something big on your birthday! My mom always did this with us growing up and it made me feel so special! So we carry on the tradition now. It's wonderful!

  9. I always have to ask my hubby how old I am, its just weird how you just tell yourself you are a certain age and you aren't. Happy Birthday!

  10. Happy birthday! Was nice meeting you on Sunday. Cake looks delicious. I like the idea of birthday week- I'm lucky to get a birthday afternoon most years, but will have to change that for the next one. Recommendation noted! Cx

    1. Cait, it was SO nice meeting you! I was telling Dee how lovely you are. Birthday celebrations definitely require more effort these days, but that just makes them even more special.
