Candid shot - think I'm pouring some sangria for people just arriving while Chats (Mike, Lauren's boyfriend) looks on in the back and Ruby is watching me. haha

Although today is my "actual" birthday, I celebrated on Saturday with almost all my NYC nearest and dearest! We kicked off the night with sangria on the roof (which I made - spent about an hour chopping fruit! Who knew nectarines were so hard to slice? haha), then dinner at Zutto and a bar after that.
This year I am feeling especially grateful for my friends and the little bit of family I have in NYC - getting older really isn't so bad when you realize what awesome people you have in your life, and some of these people I only met this year, or became good friends with this year. All I know is, I'm grateful for each and every one of them. Thank you everyone who came to celebrate with me! I'm a lucky girl. :)
