Bex’s birthday weekend was bittersweet at first – ’twas her first birthday not home with her family. I know, believe it or not, for the past 22 years of my life, I have always spent my birthday in Rochester, NY with my family and grandparents. Oh, the perks of having my birthday fall over winter break! A home-cooked meal, Mom’s unreal carrot cake and some great laughs with my brothers was really missed on my 23rd bday, but my amazing friends in DC made it all the more merrier.
And if anyone could put a smile on my face, it is my college roommate, Abbey, who took the train in to DC from NYC for the weekend. I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard in three days in my entire life. From an amazing dinner at Ambar, shopping in Georgetown, to the highlight of the trip with our brunch at B Too, I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday weekend away from my family.
