birthday recap: 23.

IMG_1623if you follow me on IG, you know it was my 23rd birthday on Saturday! it was the best day & Robbie made it extra special. there were so many pictures i wanted to post, but didn’t, so i figured i would do a quick blog post about it! it’s been quite some time since my birthday was on a Saturday, so it was really fun to have the whole day to celebrate & spend with my hubby!

i woke up to a flurry of pink packages that Robbie quietly set up the night before while i was sleeping {can’t wait to share w/ you the goodies i received in future blog posts!} & the surprises continued all day long! he spoiled me, but what i loved the most was spending the day with him! love you babe. here’s to another year older!
