i threw a surprise party for one of my best friend's 25th birthday.  we've been plotting this for weeks and boy was it stressful!  i had to lie and make some people upset (mostly the birthday girl who didn't think there were plans for her birthday) but the surprise was awesome and she was pretty shocked to see 20 of her friends waiting for her.  we went to caffe luna (so so good!) and it was a great night.
happy birthday, alli!
i recently got a fish eye lens and am pretty much obsessed.
more to come on that later.
 the food at caffe luna really is the best!


baby ava

i finally got to meet my friend's {tom and kristen johnson} sweet little baby, ava, recently.
it was so good to spend time with old friends and to get to hold ava!

 tom and kristen live in washington, nc {little washington} where my grandmother 
used to live so i had to make a stop at her old house.
