birthday in black and white

Last night I celebrated my birthday with my friends, and it was an all-around beautiful night.
Everyone dressed up and we went to a tapas restaurant that I love. It's very small and discreet from the outside, and when you open the doors you feel like you've stepped into a Casablanca-esque time and place.
The waiters gave me a candle in a large brass frog candlestick and showered us in bubbles from a plastic hippo. It's the only time I've ever wanted a wait staff to sing me happy birthday!
I love everyone who came, and I think this was one of my favorite birthdays. :)
