for all of your lovely birthday wishes yesterday! as it turns out, 31 doesn't seem to be bad at all so far.
i enjoyed an all-around lovely day yesterday, complete with:
✰ 5 mile run filled with sunshine, a cool breeze, the arcade fire, and scents of honeysuckle [although it was slightly bittersweet -- i will have to find a durham alternative to my out-the-door chapel hill route in just a week!]
✰ massage and mani/pedi at bella trio. locals, if you want an amazing swedish massage, go see tim there. you can thank me later!!
✰ fun + centering yoga express class at blue point with my favorite instructor sara
✰ an impromptu trip to six plates in yoga gear with the fabulous c + l [they just moved into the apartment we were thisclose to signing on last month!]
champagne + birthdays [at least my birthday] seem to go hand in hand . . .
✰ heading back home,
the atmosphere is a little intimate for lots of pictures, but i had a wonderful time with my date plus j + d, friends who joined us all the way from raleigh.
i did, however, bring home the menu so i could show you their is it local?-esque information:
[if you haven't seen the piece this refers to yet, WATCH IT!! i promise you'll laugh.]
birthday menu shot:
i am not hyperbolizing when i say that every single bite was fantastic. homemade pasta, fresh bread, vibrant flavors, and hey . . . it's local :)
i did sneak one shot in at dessert which josh and i shared as per usual:
the fun continues into the weekend -- i have a summery picnic lunch planned with my sister. i am also ready to get down and dirty into decluttering mode pre-move! stay tuned . . .
how are you planning to enjoy this beautiful may day?
