First off, thank you so much for all the sweet birthday wishes yesterday! When I woke up and saw the post, I felt like the luckiest girl in the world. These past few weeks, I’ve been working hard to make a book deadline so I’ve been working late into the night, but because I love birthdays I celebrated in my own way… When I got to the Paper Crown offices, we wore party hats all day, ate cake and even had a little champagne (a perk of being your own boss). Several friends stopped by the office to wish me a happy birthday and brought flowers too. All in all, it was a pretty wonderful day! Today I thought I’d share a little photo recap of my birthday… Enjoy!

When I got to my office at Paper Crown, I found this on my desk:


I then proceeded to have cake for breakfast (because calories don’t count on your birthday)…


And this is Maura, the mastermind behind the festivities.


I mean really, how adorable is this champagne bottle?


This is what happens when I have to spend my birthday at my office… Cheers!


Champagne makes for excellent office decor, doesn’t it?


And this pretty much sums up my day…


Thank you again for making my birthday extra special… It was a really great day.

Let me know if you like these photo diary posts in the comments below. If you do, I’ll try to do more of them!

XO Lauren
