Dress: Consignment – High Society in Scottsdale, AZ (it’s linen so of course it wrinkles when you sit down)
Having a parent live on each side of the country was an adventure for me. I loved flying to Arizona every summer to see my dad because, I’ve always felt Arizona was my home. Florida was beautiful, but it never +felt like home in the same way.
However, going to school in Florida mean most of my friends lived there. But with spending summers in sunny Arizona it was hard to celebrate birthday’s with my friends because they were all on the other coast. I think one year I stayed a week or two after school ended just so I could be with my friends for my 13th Birthday.
When I met hubby 22 years ago, it was right before my 21st birthday and we’ve been inseparable ever since, had kids right away, and once again, I never had much of a chance to celebrate my birthday with girlfriends.
Well, that finally changed this year. I decided that spending more time with those I love (aside from my family) is important. So took my girlfriends to Quiessence, the Farm at South Mountain for the most heavenly farm-to-table 5 course meal you’ve ever had! That is my favorite kind of food!
Thank you to my friends for making it a magical and unforgettable evening. Love you ladies!
