My sister and I started planning her Birthday celebrations more than a month ago. She's got a great group of fun girlfriends, and any excuse to get together with them is always welcome for me. Because she lives in a town more than an hour away, and most of her friends live closer to me, we decided to have the little party at our house.
Because of Mother's Day, a big event was going on in the Town Center. It's called the Art & Wine Affaire, and it was pretty good. Lots of wineries and several local artists and jewelry, furniture, and sculpture artists. It was sunny and hot... so we shade hopped and stopped for a bottle of wine and refreshing drinks inside a cute little cafe right in the center of the action.
I think she had a fun Birthday - I know I had fun celebrating ;)
Happy 28th, Juju - I love you!
I made sure we had plenty of snacks to start out the day... kept us going!
This was half of the exhibits...
Our little break inside at the cafe... lucky we found a table big enough for us all!

We parked in area "G". We thought this was hilarious...

The day ended with a few games and hanging out on the patio!
It was a beautiful afternoon. I love this girl - and was so happy we got to celebrate her with a few of her close friends. She's such a special person with a big beautiful heart and soul. So lucky to have her as my sister!
