The Last Year of My Twenties

In 2011 when my birthday rolled around, I thought it would be my last birthday in the States for awhile. Although I was wrong about that, I'm so thankful that God has opened the door for us to depart for Austria soon. Buying tickets for Vienna was an early birthday present!

Nate and I celebrated my 29th birthday last Wednesday, a few days early. (On my actual birthday, we had to drive 15 hours to Connecticut, so Wednesday was a much better day to celebrate!) Here is our birthday adventure in pictures...

Crepes for breakfast from Chef Nate.

Nate bought me my first pair of Toms shoes!

We had lunch downtown at RJ Grunts - delicious burgers!

A cute owl at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
Beavers - they were so cute!

I'm bonding with my new friend.



The Meerkats look right at you!

Nate's favorite animal - the River Otter.

A huge tiger


Gourmet cupcakes :)

Dinner Menu from Volare - a delicious Italian meal...also where we dined after we got engaged!


  1. Happy belated birthday, Bethany!

  2. Happy Birthday a little late! We've loved rejoicing with you as God answers prayers and blesses you with good things! I pray this coming year brings even more to rejoice over!
    Also, you went to Volare? We live right across the street! Great place (Kaja loves their gnocci!)! :)

  3. Thanks, Natalie!
    Emily - we commented about that when we were walking to Volare! I remember you describing where you live and that it's right around the corner. Isn't that place delicious?!
