Feeling 22

Wicker Park Chicago

Yes, Taylor Swift’s hit “22” was my anthem on my birthday weekend. And what a weekend it was!

The Build Up:

My birthday celebration kicked off on Wednesday when I was surprised with a mini birthday celebration at my internship. The girls at Nico and Lala surprised me with personalized stationery and cupcakes from Sprinkles. I felt so special!

My roommate, Emily, made me the best birthday pancakes Friday morning because she had to work on my actually birthday. We stuffed so much candy into those pancakes. I definitely hit my calorie limit for the day in that one meal.

I rang in the 26th at work on the Terrace by  jamming out to “22” with one of the best views in the city. Zareen stepped in for my non-existent boyfriend and bought the gorgeous flowers above.

I spent the actually day of my birthday brunching with friends at The Bongo Room in Wicker Park. I love that neighborhood so much. Such great food, shops, vibes, and people.
