A BIRTHDAY DINNER

20130911_JK_VBR_0046_largeI love a birthday party, so I was thrilled when Jenni Kayne asked me if I would come over and cook dinner for her and some of her girlfriends for her birthday. A low key celebration, the night was both beautiful and relaxed, filled with hanging out by the fireplace, catching up, and lots of laughter. For more on all the little details, check out Jenni’s site, Rip+Tan.
