Twenty-Six

On January 27th I celebrated my twenty-sixth birthday.
I actually had the day off work, which was a huge surprise and a blessing as I spent the day catching up on things left untended to. 
That night Brandon came home from work and cooked a delicious supper for us, then he surprised me with a birthday cake and sang Happy Birthday to me all by himself.
It was really special and I was really impressed! 
 On Saturday we spent the day in Savannah celebrating.
The weather all week was in the upper 70s, which means this was one of the best birthdays I've ever had!
It has snowed on my birthday many, many times, but it has never been this beautiful!
We went to one of our favorite Savannah spots, Leopold's, for a quick bite to eat.
We shared a shrimp salad sandwich that was delicious! I highly recommend it!
For dessert we shared a double scoop-Brandon picked out rum cake flavor while I picked dark chocolate raspberry ice cream.
After lunch we walked around and went into my favorite store, the Paris Market!
My big birthday present was the pair of silver Jack Rogers Navajo sandals!!!! I have been wanting a pair for SO long and I was so surprised to get them. I am in love with them! A huge thanks to my hubby and his parents!
We finally found a nice young couple to take our picture together! :)
Just another beautiful day in Savannah!
Twenty-six hasn't been so bad so far. I know this sounds ridiculous, but I do not like the idea of getting older one bit. In my mind I'm stuck at age 22. Crossing over from 25 to 26 means I'm getting closer to 30. Like I mentioned, I'm ridiculous.
We ended the day by eating at the Olde Pink House...more on that in the next post! :)
