This years birthday was definitely one for the books! It fell on a Monday (the day of the solar eclipse!) so it was a weekend full of celebrations and a historical day that I’ll never forget.
On Saturday night, we went up to Park City with friends to eat dinner at my favorite restaurant, Vessel, and then slept over at our friend’s cabin up in Deer Valley. I think people tend to think of Deer Valley of a winter destination but I think it is just as gorgeous in the summertime!
The owners of Vessel surprised me with an adorable Funfetti cake. We’ve worked with them a lot lately with Utah Grubs and they’ve become great friends of ours. If you ever find yourself up in Park City, be sure to go try it out. The Hash Hash is my favorite dish.
Sunday night was filled with homemade peach pie and lots of great family time. As much as I love fall, I know I’m going to miss these warm summer nights in the backyard with my fam. The peach pie recipe I used is HERE.
My actual birthday was unforgettable! I loved the solar eclipse and have been looking forward to it since I first heard about it a couple years ago. We were in 97% totality range so it was crazy to feel the weather turn, see our shadows blur, and witness the eclipse through the glasses. I can’t imagine how neat it would’ve been to be at 100% totality!
It is never a complete birthday without a jog up Pipeline trail! I can’t believe this trail/view is only 7 miles away from my house. It is my favorite tradition to do every year on my birthday… as well as get a giant Diet Coke and chocolate Dunford donut to start it off right ?
And for my birthday eve… we had a date night with just the two of us. We tried an Italian restaurant in Holladay and then went on a walk around my favorite neighborhood, finishing it off with strawberry gelato. My birthday every year is usually the first day/week of school, or spent working full-time in an office, so I loved being able to spend so much time with close friends and family. An incredible birthday that left me feeling so blessed and loved! I just still can’t believe I’m 25. It honestly feels like I just turned 21 haha. Life sure does go by quickly.
Thanks to all those who made my birthday the best yet!
