we celebrate birthdays right around here

 with lots of food, family + friends! we've partied all weekend long with this very special seventeen year old girl woman in our lives. saturday night, we partied it up with some of her best friends at IHOP (we love pancakes around here!) then later chilled out downtown, enjoying a very cool autumn evening. and then after church, the family celebrated at one of Ashley's fave burger places, Cheeburger-cheeburger for burgers (duh) and for dessert (with what little tummy room we had left!), fro-yo at Lovin' Spoons. 

you are so loved by so many. you are beautiful, hilarious, and - seriously - there is no one like you (*snicker, snicker*). i cannot wait to see what God unfolds in your life in this next year! i know it's gonna be one uh-mazing year, sister!

much love.
{happy birthday, ashley grace!}
