I’ve always loved the first day of spring. But maybe that’s because I am a little biased…. Today marks my 26th birthday! My birthday always makes me reflect on past years and it’s always bittersweet.
It feels weird to say I’m 26. I feel like I should be saying I am turning 30! I have experienced so much so far, and I am so grateful for every experience. I have learned a lot about myself, particularly over the past couple of years.
Sometimes I am amazed at what I have done so far in my 26 years of life. I graduated high school early and moved to NYC on my own at age 17, I moved to Los Angeles at age 20, I became Miss USA at age 21, and this year I will become a wife. And still so much more life to live with unexpected journeys and milestones yet to come.
This year we are having a low-key celebration with friends at the end of the week at one of our favorite pubs (yes, I said pubs). The one bummer to living 3000 miles away from my hometown means I cannot have my mom’s homemade baked birthday cake. Every year for our birthday, my mom would have my sister and I choose whatever kind of cake we wanted for our birthday and she would make it. Technically she made my favorite cake at my NJ bridal shower – yellow cake with vanilla frosting! But for now I will settle for whatever cake T brings home.
Banana Republic dress, Manolo Blahnik shoes, Serpui Marie bag, Jo Malone perfume in Wild Bluebell, Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in Nude Kate
Bon anniversaire, like we say in France
Happy birthday ????????sorry I’m a a day late ????
I love the dress but most of all, I was inspired by the post, you deserve everything you have no including the joy of being 26. Happy belated birthday.
