On the wall around Graceland, during my birthday trip there in 2011 with Jonathan, Alissa, and Kate. (After this picture was taken, I can clearly remember Kate saying, “Was the hand thing really necessary?” Yes. Always.)
On the grass near the port in Galway, on one bright, sunny Irish morning. (So green.)
Remembering last year’s birthday celebration: road tripping to Graceland with three of my favorite people in the world. We rented a car, drove through the night to Memphis, and soaked up the dated decadence that is The King. It’s hard to top a life-long dream – especially when it’s coupled with a surprise carnival in Mississippi where we discovered our new favorite band.
The bar has been set high for this year’s celebration. Festivities have been postponed until the end of the month when Jonathan and I will celebrate…in London!
So my actual birthday, yesterday, was spent doing the things I love to do.
(1.) Drinking Champagne
(Cue the Marina & the Diamonds song.)
