my 23rd recipe

Begin at a wine bar, preferably sustainable, and with a best friend.
 Then, add the ballet with my sister
+ breakfast in bed
+ rooftop yoga with my roommate
+ strong coffee + a salad niçoise en plein aire
+ a fancy green juice and an "indulgent" snack
+ birthday mojitos + dancing the night away
+ a chocolate croissant and cappuccino gelato, shared with my cousin, at 4 a.m.
+ a day at the beach
+ sunbathing + games of badminton + devouring this book
+ long island detours
+ the catch of the day wrap, a cold beer, sparking water, and cole slaw
+ belated birthday flowers
+ the annual memorial day bbq + my aunt's green salad
+ birthday cupcakes, of course.
Finally, garnish with a neighborhood glass of rosé, and you have yourself... the most amazing 23rd birthday celebration/weekend a girl could ever ask for.

If only my camera weren't broken so my iPhone wouldn't have had to document it ;).
