My husband and I love birthdays so we decided that we would celebrate our birthday months. Planning my birthday is always a task and difficult for me. I love to entertain and usually plan a small gathering with friends but find that I go into host mode and don't really enjoy my party. So when my husband asked me this year what I wanted to do I thought about all my favorite things and decided I would spend a day doing my favorite things and whoever wanted to join me could.
So I made a list of all my favorite things and decided on yoga, tea, the ocean, movies, fuzzy socks, and PJ's. My plan was, free yoga in the park in the morning with breakfast at the Dana Point Harbor (my happy place), then lunch and tea at the Royal Tea and Treatery (gluten free and dairy free!), then a movie, snacks, PJ's and fuzzy socks back at the house. Here is how it went . . .
In the morning, I had kits ready for my girls with water bottles, fuzzy socks, and supplies to make boho flower crowns.
First stop was Dana Point! I love the harbor so we went down there to get some breakfast then went to I heart yoga which is a donation based yoga that is every day in a park above the harbor. There is nothing like doing yoga overlooking the ocean!
The next stop was Royal Tea and Treatery! This is a cute cafe in Costa Mesa that is completely gluten free and dairy free. They have amazing sandwiches, homemade hummus, tasty tea, and delicious scones and desserts.
I brought some small fake flowers to put into our twine headbands during lunch. Here is how mine turned out.
Finally, we headed home to watch a movie. I transformed my living room into a boho lounge and my husband prepared snacks for us to eat while we watch our movie. I selected "Sisters" to watch, a hilarious film if you haven't seen it.
It was such a wonderful birthday! I loved sharing things that were important to me with my friends and family.
