Today’s my birthday!

It feels like just yesterday that I was sharing my Gourmet Brownie Hack recipe with you — I honestly can’t believe how fast the last 12 months have flown by. Another year, gone in an instant.

Fun Facts: I share a birthday with Barack Obama, Paul McCarthy and the day incorrectly attributed to Dom Pierre Pérignon inventing champagne, or “drinking the stars”. But I’m still going to go ahead and say I share a birthday with champagne because… well, wouldn’t you?

Here are a few of my favorite memories from the last year:Why, hello Gaston! Sed Bona with Winnie the Pooh and Tigger 5That time Gaston flirted with my sister and I got to hang out in the Hundred Acre Wood with Winnie the Pooh and Tigger at Disneyworld. P.s.
