Birthday Traditions

a lovely card from one of my best friends

an awesome card I discovered sitting on my desk yesterday morning (favorite part? no standing only dancing)

My family has always had a tradition of decorating the kitchen table with confetti and candy on someone’s birthday morning.  There are usually balloons and streamers as well, along with a few small trinkets wrapped up in tissue.  It was hands down the best part of my birthday every year growing up.  This year is actually the first year I didn’t celebrate any part of my birthday at home…but naturally my mom came down to Boston last weekend with birthday table necessities in tow (she likes them just as much as I do).  And lucky for me my wonderful roommates decorated the table for me to find yesterday morning.  It looks like 24 is starting off on the perfect foot.  Thanks to everyone who made me feel so loved!
