For the love of Birthday Cake

Birthday Cake

Birthday Cake

This blog post is going to be short and sweet. I have been so busy the last few weeks due to my Umrah trip and my mini girls getaway that I didn’t have enough time to come up with this post in proper chronological order. (You can read about both of my trips here: For the love of Umrah, and For the love of a Jersey Getaway). These pics are from a small birthday party my husband and I hosted for my closest family and friends for my birthday. (Read about For the love of Turning 30 here). My youngest sister @sepiacrayons took these amazing pics and I simply had to put them up. Also, I could not deprive you guys of all the fabulousness that was displayed at my party. The party was held at Mint Restaurant and Lounge in Long Island. The food was Indo-Asian cuisine and was splendid. Through mingling and socializing, I later realized no pictures of the food were taken, but the food was cooked to perfection. Spicy but still flavorful. These are my fashion forward friends who arrived in their modest fashionable attire. The delicious birthday cake was a complete surprise and my husband ordered it from: http://cmnycakes.com/
