For the month leading up to Ashley and her husband Aaron's January visit, there existed a constant party-planning-pin-sharing-group text between Ashley's sister Whitney, our good friend Reika, myself and Aaron in which we schemed a way to surprise-spoil the birthday gal that so graciously serves and hosts others on the daily. It's not small task to throw a party for someone that excels at throwing parties… but two trips to L.A's party district, one trip to the flower market, some gold paint, a couple of late craft nights, a decoy nail appointment and one killer brunch spread later, I think it's safe to say that we caught her a little off-guard.
With a baby in the oven and a cross-country move in the upcoming months, I'd say her 30th year is already shaping up to be an adventurous one. I'm still pinching myself that we get to do real life together again soon. Hope it's one of the best years yet, Ashley. xo
