The fact that my birthday is on Black Friday is practically the definition of kismet!
It's as though all of America, as a country, is telling me that I MUST shop today.
And what better way to celebrate your 26th than with balloons, sparklers, and
finally purchasing those items that you've left in your online shopping cart
for months?  Throw a cupcake in there and it's like, omg, the best birthday evarrrr.

I don't quite know how I feel about twenty six yet.  It's not my favourite number.
Not for any particular reason, either.  It's just a little meh.  Not as fun and easygoing
as twenty five, but also not quite as serious as twenty seven.  Because for some
reason, twenty seven is that magical number when I have to really start acting
like an adult.  That's what I've decided, anyway.

Whatever the number, I am excited to celebrate with my friends and family.
I have a lot to be thankful for, such as health and happiness, and being surrounded
by so much love.  Thank you all for that xo

  3. Happy birthday, my beautiful friend. Wish I could be there to celebrate with you {and dissuade you from starting to act like an adult next year because seriously, where is the fun in that?} but I know you'll do it up in style. You look absolutely stunning in these photos, I'm going to need some very detailed instructions on how to replicate that eye make-up ;) Big hugs!

  11. Happy birthday Alicia! 26 was a great year for me - I'm sure it will be for you too!

  12. Happy Birthday!

    Twenty-six is a really good one. You're just old enough to really start feeling like an adult and figuring stuff out, but you're right - not twenty-seven yet and far away from the thirty mark.

    All the best!
