My Little Sister is ALL GROWN UP!

My darling, gorgeous and all-around-perfect sister turned 21 this week and I was so happy to celebrate with our closest friends and family!

First, we celebrated with a French-style dinner (cooked by yours truly) consisting of fresh omelets, crepes, a brie with raspberry jam wrapped in crescent dough and mimosas.

Look at this GORGEOUS Birthday girl!!!
Baby getting dressed for our party!
Champagne of course!
As always, Oliver stole the show and stole everyone's attention!

After a hard week prepping for finals we celebrated with our dearest friends at a cute restaurant called Urban Flats in The Gulch and then played a few games like "Why, Because" and "The Game" (not the one you just lost...).

She ordered her very first drink! It was so cute and she's now officially a grownup!
His beard tickles and I wasn't expecting him to lean over when we were getting our picture taken! Ha! Gotta love J. L.!

BEAUTIFUL birthday girl!
The crew!

Jason took up the class factor and brought a few mustaches.
By the end of the night my face was aching from laughing harder than I've laughed in a VERY long time. 

We were all so happy to celebrate the life of my wonderful sister and the fact that her presence has changed us all for the best! I won't get all mushy, but I just want to say I am so grateful that I've had a best friend since 1989 who is as amazing as she is. I only hope I can be half the woman she is.

Happy Birthday, Jenny Wren!!
