The Day I Turned 29

My birthday this year was... interesting. I think I was too anxious waiting for Wolfie to come to fully enjoy it... and I woke up feeling pretty sick. BUT, not every birthday has to be your best birthday, and a baby is better than a birthday anyway.

Nevertheless, there were several great and/or memorable moments throughout the day.

My day started with these gorgeous peonies:


and this super amazing card that Levi made me:


I'm going to frame it in my office nook. I lOVE it.

Then we went to Beverly Hills for a tour of the Robinson Gardens.



It was beautiful, but Levi and I never made it to the actual gardens. I was too bored after spending more than an HOUR AND A HALF standing in only two rooms listening to the docent ramble... it was supposed to be a garden tour, not a stand-in-a-room-and-listen-to-random-anecdotes-for-a-really-long-time tour.

These were our fellow inmates....


They were obviously captivated and didn't seem to mind the rambling. In fact, they perpetuated it by asking a million questions.

I just wanted to walk through the gardens!

Annnnnyway, after that, we stopped by my beloved 'lette macarons (formerly known as Paulette).


Then we popped into Anthropologie to browse and try on hats...



Levi bought me a couple extra presents. I was definitely showered with amazing gifts this year.

On the way home, we had a really delicious lunch at Lemonade in Venice.


At that point, I really wasn't feeling well, so we just came home and took it easy for the rest of the day.

And that was my birthday! Up next... my super amazing birthday party, where I did NOT feel sick. Yay!
