Last week was my birthday week, and it was a good one, filled with low-key and simple moments, absolutely all I wanted. I spent the afternoon of my birthday at the lake, swimming with Zooey, reading on the dock, and relaxing in the sun. With the crazy heat we've had this summer, this pup of ours is very quickly becoming a lover of the water, which I'm stoked about! I grew up without air conditioning at my parent's house, and since we've been living there this summer, I think it's definitely been an adjustment for Hobson and Zooey, so I try to get her down to the lake whenever I can!
Later in the day, Hobson took me on a bit of a trip down memory lane to some of our favorite local spots, most of which hold a unique and special meaning to us, this park included. Hobson make a fun little video on Instagram - watch here!
The following night, my parents took my sister, Hobson and I out for dinner, drinks and homemade birthday cake at a lovely little restaurant none of us had ever been to. The food was outrageous and the staff awesome. It was a perfect night out.
I just want to send a huge thank you to my wonderful family and thoughtful friends for all of your gifts, cards, notes and well-wishes. Being twenty-four is already off to a wonderful start, and I cannot wait to see what else it has it store.
