I had a wonderful birthday this year (having a husband and a birthday rocks)
Friday night Jenna and I went out for drink…. think espresso martinis and over priced tapas (exactly what I was craving)
Then came Saturday morning, Josh surprised me with a Glasshouse candle, a herb garden and the cutest succulent garden ive ever seen. We spent the morning having breakfast at James Street Markets and picking up cinnamon raisin bagels/kale/flowers for home (wearing my Jellies from Jaq and lippy from Jen). He then took me on a marathon Op shopping exhibition, where I picked up two Country Road (current season) tshirts and a cashmere Witchery cardigan! Score!!
We finished off the day with free tickets to Keith Urban. Neither of us know much of his music, but we thought ‘why not!”
He was amazing… such a nice down to earth guy who knows how to preform… such a fun night!

I had the best birthday! Thank you to my dear friends and family for your words, cards, gifts and time. Ive never felt so loved, thank you for making the first day of 23 so wonderful.

Ps, I start my new job in 8 days *butterflies*
