Today marks year 23 for me. Since it's on a Monday this year and right after all of the Halloween madness it kind of feels like any other ordinary day. However, Zaden must have a sixth sense and know it's my birthday since he has been extra sweet and let me sleep in longer than usual (;

These photos were taken by my new and talented photographer friend Roxana. I absolutely love them and it was so hard for me to narrow it down to under 20 pictures for this post. Definitely check out her work here and "like" her on facebook to keep up with her latest shoots.
