a birthday just isn't complete without a cake and the ones you love . . .


over the weekend, our parents came up to our house on saturday to celebrate my birthday!  ryan's parents surprised me with a bouquet of beautiful two-tone orange roses.  for dinner, ryan made a gorgeous salad and picked up a loaf of my favorite rosemary bread.  we also made homemade pasta.  my mom made homemade chicken parmesan and eggplant rollatini too.  it was such a treat!

we finished off the evening with a birthday cake and a curious kitten who had fun helping me open my birthday presents.  i had such a great time celebrating my birthday with the ones i love!


hope everyone had a great weekend too!
love, laurie

I sure could go for some salad and bread right now. The salad bar in the cafe that I just had for lunch is no comparison. I really like the picture of you with the cake and roses and also the one with the little orange rose.

Happy Birthday, Laurie! :) The cake looks beautiful, but I can't believe you made it yourself for your birthday! Haha. Hope it was a good one!
