WIAW: Birthday Edition

There’s one thing that’s synonymous with birthdays, and that’s food. Okay, there are a couple others balloons, presents, parties, candles too. But today we’re talking about  the food that helped to facilitate the work day and celebrations for my twenty-fourth.



Tea and parfait surprise 🙂 Brought by Richard after a birthday gym session




Made a Whole Food’s hot bar stop the night before in anticipation of the big day. I wanted some garlicky kale salad  to look forward to after a long day in the office. I could put a candle on this and be happy.



Dinner Feast

Birthday Sushi 101:

1) Pour a big glass of the wine that you smuggled back from your trip to France



2) Monitor the special brown rice you requested in your sushi rolls

3) Pour more wine…and champagne. Chat with your brother


4) Watch the sushi chef boyfriend work his magic

5) Eat too much sushi. Good thing there’s no cake

No words.


I have gained so many incredible and  integral people in my life over the past few years. I hope for big opportunities, big discoveries, and a big heart in the years to come. Thank you for all the birthday good wishes!
