Scott and me at a wedding the weekend before my birthday
I turned 31 last week. It's very cliched, but I really don't feel like I'm in my thirties, much less a year into my thirties. It all goes by so fast. Especially since this last year has been a year of extreme highs (getting married to my best friend!) and lows (losing the baby in February). I know that God has a plan for me and I look forward to discovering what that is. I'm so excited for the future!

Last year, Scott and I rented a limo with 12 of our closest friends and toured three vineyards. It was a blast! Our friend, Shar, has amazing connections in northern Virginia and through these we were able to get a great deal on a limo this year. We only visited two vineyards this time but it was nice because we could spend a little more time at each instead of rushing off to the next vineyard. I think we'll make this a tradition :-)

Special thanks to the people who came out to celebrate my birthday: Scott, Sharmane, Chris, Paul, Roz, Eric, Ruth, Adam, Jeff, Heather, Bethany, Rob, and Rachel... It was awesome and made even more enjoyable by having everyone together!
Everyone hanging in our backyard - we even had bocce ball!
After the vineyard tour we came back to our house for dinner and pasta with another group of our friends. It was so nice having everyone at our place. I even got my favorite cake - Costco birthday cake, lol!
The pictures were taken by Scott's dad, Paul. I didn't take any so thank you for sending them over!
