So this year was a big birthday for me: 25. I was going through my quarter-life-crisis (I cut my hair, went glutenfrei, and traveled to Iceland). To celebrate my crisis, I had a big birthday brunch. I made crepes and everyone brought champagne. The party ended up lasting all day and charades were played for hours. Can we talk about how much fun charades are? The app from the Ellen Show is the best because most of the time, you don’t care about really keeping score and you want something fast paced.
Anyways for my birthday decor, I had a bunch of old maps and hung them using painter’s tape on a wall. It was the perfect backdrop for photos and surprisingly, a topic of conversation for many guests. So many of my friends would go look at the maps and point things out. Plus it turns out, I had a cartographer there (yay friends’ significant others!), so there were many conversations about maps and map making. I am nerd and love things like that.
