The 30th birthday festivities started a little early on Sunday with an accidental surprise party.
My friends planned an early birthday pool party for me since my birthday falls on Father’s Day…and they forgot to tell me about it! I was teaching yoga on Sunday morning and after class one of my friends said, “I hope the weather stays nice today.” I said, “me too…I want to lay out.” I was secretly hoping in my head that she’d invite me over to her pool and then 5 minutes later they came back in the room and said, “You do know we’re having a party for you this afternoon, right?” I had no idea! It was hilarious. A fun surprise though!
So clearly my Sunday afternoon plans changed and I quickly left the studio, ate, blogged, ran and headed over to the party. Unfortunately, the early morning sunshine turned into clouds and drizzle but we still had a great time.
We did lots of snacking, hung out in the hot tub (in the rain) and of course enjoyed plenty of cocktails! 🙂 Of course my camera died a couple hours into the party so the rest of my photos are from my iPhone.
The rain finally forced us inside so they broke out the cake. Strawberry – my favorite! We had one “3” candle and a bunch of normal candles in the shape of a “0” on a snowflake plate. It was perfect! 🙂
And it wouldn’t be a yogi birthday party if I didn’t incorporate cake balancing asanas into the celebration.
Rain or no rain, all I felt was sunshine and love. I didn’t care that the weather wasn’t perfect. I didn’t care that my hair was a curly mess. I just felt so happy to be with my friends. It was incredibly kind and thoughtful of them to organize this party for me and to give up their Sunday afternoon to celebrate my birthday! 30 here I come!
