Best Birthday Ever

I think everyone must say (or think) this. But I really truly believe that I have the best friends ever. I turned 25 on Friday (yikes), and I honestly didn't know whether to smile or cry. I mean I love birthdays just as much as the next girl, but I heard that it all goes downhill from 25 (okay....I'm sure those people were being dramatic though). I was excited, but at the same time apprehensive. But luckily for this girl, I have some really great friends who made me feel loved all weekend long.

Friday started with the birthday bomb on my desk. I named the dinosaur Walter (and I love my LinkedIn family!).

Then the best guy ever took me on a date night at Panta Rei in North Beach, followed by cannolis for dessert and Rogue beer for a night cap (I'm looking at you Matt Evans).

But the best part was the 24 of my friends that loaded onto a party bus to go wine tasting in Sonoma. We hit up Robledo Winery (wouldn't go back there again), Viansa (where I could live for the rest of my life), and Nicholson Ranch (with its beautiful lake and amazing hospitality). I can't thank these wonderful friends enough for the amazing  and fun (and crazy wild) day we had.

Amazing beautiful wonderful friends

We capped off Saturday night with dinner at Osha Thai and drinks at Local Edition (btw, I am obsessed with this fun!!!!). 

And then on Sunday, I came home to these cupcakes from Miss Meghan all the way across the world (ok well across the country). AND Matt and I watched Despicable Me 2 AND Monster's University (life win).

Plus who could forget the calls/text messages/surprise hugs/messages/emails from everyone else. And if 26, 27, 28, 29, etc are anything like this birthday, I can't wait for the rest of them. Thank you lovely friends and family for loving me so much on this birthday!
