Who: Me and my crew. My friends, my sister surprised me by flying in from Philly, Ali flew in from New York, Jessica came in from Texas, my parents, and of course Mark- who put it all together because he loves me and I won the husband lottery.
What: We rented a house for 40th birthday and it was so adorable, crafty, farm to table beautiful, you could just PUKE. Seriously, it was like living in a Kinfolk magazine photo shoot. There was handmade yarn garland, hammocks, flower crowns, farm fresh eggs, adorable wildflower arrangements, lakeside sunsets and a bonfire Stevie Nicks singalong. My parents came and it didn't even feel weird getting drunk in front of them. BECAUSE I AM 40 and I AM A GROWN UP NOW. It was the best. It's tough for me to hand over the reigns in terms of Party Planning. It's MY THING. But I am so glad I did.
Why: My 40th Birthday
When: Early May, 2016
Where: Saugatuck Mi- The cutest little town you ever did see. On Lake Michigan, about 2.5 hours outside of Chicago. I highly recommend it. Go there, buy farm fresh eggs on the side of the road, build a bonfire and get dinner at Salt of the Earth (which is technically in Fennville).
