Nov 11, 2016


share post

What else is there to do when you turn 30 besides eat cake, drink wine, and blow confetti? Felicia is the most fabulous 30-year-old I know, and I’m lucky to have her as a sister. I can’t put into words how much she means to me, and how thankful I am to have had her in my life for so many years. My brother got a good one…I couldn’t have picked someone more sweet, or fun, or loving.

Felicia baby, 30 looks good on you! I hope this birthday is even sweeter than all the rest. You’re going to rock out your 30s even better than your 20s. We all know it. (:

I love you! Happy Birthday!!!

The best thing about being 30 HAS to be having these two little girls by her side. <3 Be still my heart!

Of course the girls wanted in at the end! When Felicia first started digging into the cake, Brayla said, “Mommy, your nails!!!” But she didn’t hesitate when Felicia told them they could have some cake!

When you’re 30, some days call for a little extra wine, and some just call for a few sweet snuggles and delicious cake. (:
