Yesterday was my 30th birthday, so my entire weekend was spent celebrating with friends and family. My parents, brother, sister-in-law, nephew, and two girlfriends all traveled in from out of town…I was really feeling the love!
Since I moved to Chicago eight years ago, I cannot remember a birthday when the weather was as hot or amazing as it was this weekend. Saturday was the perfect night for the party my husband threw me outside on the terrace of our condo building. It was a Mexican fiesta complete with a taco guy serving up chicken, beef, al pastor, and fish options. I couldn’t have asked for a more incredible evening with so many of the people I love.
Like most celebratory times, this weekend was filled with lots of eating, beginning with Friday night dinner at Sunda; Saturday brunch at Milk and Honey; Sunday night dinner at Mana Food Bar; plus not one, but two birthday cakes from Sweet Mandy B’s and Yum!
This birthday definitely goes down in the books as one of the best!
