Of birthdays and summer.

The birthdays have been celebrated, and very well if I say so myself! The cupcakes above came from a cute local cupcake shop called Cupcake Chic. The flavors: strawberry vanilla, coconut, and red velvet. And they were beyond delicious. We celebrated with a trip to the local aquarium, which is awesome because we are land locked and I love the ocean and ocean creatures. We also tried The Cheesecake Factory for the first time ever. Oh goodness, why did we wait so long?

For my birthday I was given some lovely gifts, including some money to spend however I wanted! I already spent it on something for our master bedroom. I will share what it was spent on when it arrives, my fingers are crossed that it will be as great in person (the only downside when ordering online).

When we first moved into our home, summer always meant tons of house projects. This year, the projects are small, and few. It's actually really nice to be able to just sit back and enjoy our home as it is. There are things we would love to do still as budget allows, but nothing beats being able to enjoy what you have accomplished.

Do you have summer projects planned for your home?
