My 40th Birthday!

A few weeks ago I turned 40! What a blessing it was to be healthy and celebrate this milestone day! I bought my dress a few months ago and I’m so thankful that the weather was not as hot as it’s been on past birthdays! While my dress mini and sleeveless, it was was also made of wool!!

I fell in love with this dress from J. Crew the moment that I saw it and luckily I was patient enough to wait for it to go on sale. It’s called the Sophia dress and I know I’ll get a lot of use out of it for many years to come. It feels like a modern day take on something Jackie Kennedy would’ve worn and the color is just so delicate and sweet.

I’m a sweets person through and through! I made an assortment of sweets and cake! I was able to freeze the left overs so we have tons of cake to enjoy for afternoon tea/ coffee. The cake stand is super old but a treasured piece that my mom bought me about 20 years ago. She’s always so surprised when I use it every year but it pairs so nicely with my Willow Rosa dishes.

Overall, it was a great day filled with great food and treasured memories!
