My birthday in North Carolina
This year I spent my 25th birthday in North Carolina visiting my folks. I’m lucky enough that my birthday falls on or around Labor Day, so I usually take advantage of the long weekend to do something. Since I didn’t really go anywhere this summer (work has been busy), I reveled in a small trip to see my parents to just relax. Plus, I love their house. It’s so spacious compared to my tiny Manhattan apartment! And they have a backyard, guys. A backyard.
Viva Chile! We have a whole row of these little houses that my grandpa made.
My lovely mom.
My dad perpetually has a glass of wine in hand, even while barbecuing.
This fish is marinating. The wine is a-flowing.
We even had some red meat. God knows my iron count is low and meat on the grill is so yummy.
Of course we had a traditional Chilean salad at the table!
And volia delicious cookies and ice cream birthday cake.
Turning 25 feels pretty much the same as turning 24, but now I can rent a car!!
