Since Nolan and Weston both have to work on Tuesday, we had a little family dinner tonight, all together, to celebrate my upcoming birthday. We sat around the table eating deeeelicious white bean chili (from a recipe made special for me by my sweet friend, Sara!) until the sun went down.
Then we used our backyard screen to project some old home videos of when Nolan and I were growing up. It's kind of a birthday tradition at our house. Or a Saturday night tradition. Or an every time we're all together tradition. I don't know, we just really love reminiscing at the O'Connell home.
And for my (almost) 23rd birthday, my amazing mom figured out how to make a delicious, gluten-free, corn-free, dairy-free, soy-free birthday cake.
And it was the sweetest thing. In every way.
