Chocolate Almond Cake with Almond Buttercream

Chocolate Almond Cake

It’s official. I’ve hit my mid-twenties. And ya know what?… 25 looks good on me. I feel responsible and sexy; more adult but with a wild/silly side. I LOVE IT :D

LOVE Earrings

…those LOVE earrings seem familiar? I gave my mom the very same pair for her birthday (Suzanne’s Lemon Thyme), and since I was SO freakin excited when I purchased them, Elizabeth got me the very same pair for my birthday!

I was able to celebrate a little early with one of the BEST weekends ever! I roadtripped with Caitlyn and Larissa to Nashville and New Orleans. UN-BUH-LEEEVABLE! With the live country music, cowboy boots, Southern gentlemen ASKING me (and thanking me) for a dance, and the Jack poured as the go-to whiskey, Nashville was my Mecca! I felt home :)  And New Orleans was just…just great. I loved every minute. Beignets, a bachelor party in flannel onesies, shrimp and grits, live music, beads, a mechanical bull, and the best country dancing I’ve ever seen! Oh, I do love the south. <3

Nashville

Don’t stop now! Keep reading…
