Surprise Birthday Dinner

I wanted to share one last bit of my birthday. That evening I had dinner plans with Scott, my grandmother, my cousin Odessa, and Courtney. We arrived around 7:30, and waited outside for everyone to get there. Once we spotted Courtney, we headed inside Liberty Market.

My lovely cousin, Odessa, and I.

Once inside I was greeted by a table full of familiar faces, all my pals from The Phoenix Style Collective (Kara, Katherine, and Josh). I was absolutely stunned to see them all there. Never in my life has someone been able to pull such a surprise on me, and I just couldn't believe that they had planned the whole thing out without me knowing. To say I was happy would be a major understatement. I was overwhelmingly thrilled to have my sweet friends there with me to celebrate my birthday.

They all signed the sweetest card for me. It may have brought a little tear to my eye.

There was also a few presents involved (which they totally shouldn't have!), one being this amazing locally handmade ring from The GrowOP.

Being surprise by my love and friends and family was honestly one of the most amazing feelings. I am so thankful to have such sweet, and thoughtful people in my life. I truly had an amazing birthday and will never forget this wonderful surprise. Here's to an amazing 24th year!
