I love to celebrate! I’m a fan of marking an occasion and having a good time. I like to celebrate my birthday for a week- I’m one of those. I’ll celebrate it with friends, family, just Doug and I, any excuse I get, I’m all about blowing out candles and making a wish.
Doug and I celebrated my 38th birthday at Twenty Eight in Irvine. We rented out the back room and it was the perfect venue. We had amazing bites… The food there is super yummy and we have been there for lunch and dinner, we knew it would be the perfect place for a party! We had hand crafted cocktails: vodka drinks by Carbonadi and Gin Gimlets by Amass. Doug is from Paso Robles and our fav vineyard is Pomar Junction so we had wine from there.
I love to dance and VOX DJs always play my favorite tunes. Details Michelle is an amazing party planner and had told me about Halogen Pictures. They are basically editorial-type photos for your guests! She had a fan going having my guests channeling their inner Beyonce, directing the mini-photo shoots, and so many of my friends got super into it and there was even a line to get in the photo booth!
I am grateful for another year under the sun. Doug also had my friends affirm me and that was a favorite part of the night for me. It is special to be around people that know you, see you, and love you. Community is so important and investing in one another is a blessing. I think that is why I love celebrating. It is important to mark occasions, be present in life and enjoy the moment. There is so much JOY all around us and to be around people that know and love you makes my heart overflow.
I hope on your birthday that you do something special to mark the occasion.
