21 Birthday Wishes

Sunday, August 18, 2013

Yesterday was my 21st birthday and I had a lovely time celebrating with my family and amazing boyfriend (who surprised me with these fun balloons when I woke up)!
 We took a special trip to the West Loop in the heart of the city and I got to take a tour of the Archer Townsend showroom and collaboration/production room. Archer Townsend is my newest favorite design house and so it was such a pleasure to be invited down to see the latest and greatest designs that they're pumping out for this fall. I loved everything I saw and I can't wait to showoff more pictures later this week!  
 James Townsend, co-designer and co-founder of Archer Townsend, happily greeted me when we arrived. He showed me around and introduced me to some of their latest gems that will be on the market in about three weeks. Click here to pick out your favorite piece from their latest collection. 
 With James' fabulous recommendation, my family and I headed over to the world famous restaurant, Girl & The Goat, for dinner. It's super exclusive so we were lucky to get in!  

After dinner, we hit up Magnolia Bakery for some sweet treats!
I had such a memorable birthday and I'm so excited to start my 21st year of life!
Cheers!
