This weekend was primarily spent helping one of my favourite people in the entire world celebrate his birthday. It isn’t often that ones birthday falls on a Saturday, and so we made sure to enjoy it in proper fashion. Dessert was had in abundance, unnecessarily fancy dinners were splurged on*, surprise drinks were enjoyed with friends, and Sundays were spent lounging (ahem. recuperating.) I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect way to spend the past couple of days. And one more OFFICIAL Happy Birthday to my love, Justin. You know. For good measure.

*Justin is a through and through meat & potatoes kind of guy. I saved up my pennies and treated him to, what I’ve been told, the best steak in the city at Jacobs & Co. We felt ridiculously fancy and had way too much fun. The bill came with take-away muffins to enjoy for breakfast the next day. Amazing. We highly recommend.

  1. Happy belated, Justin! And what a fantastic girlfriend you are :)

    The food looks delicious and I love when restaurants write on the rim of the plate in chocolate/sauce because it looks so nice! Justin must have had a blast of a birthday.

    I love that card–so cute!

  4. Sounds like a such a fun birthday! The muffins are such a great touch…we got little brownies with a bill once that were so adorable, but there was no way we could eat anything else at that point. Something for the next morning is perfect!

      The muffins totally sealed the deal for me! I went to Auberge du Pommier with my mom and they gave us a little packet of spices with an attached recipe for an apple cake with the bill. It makes such a difference! It’s all about the little things
