A Birthday Celebration For A Very Special Woman

Dear Nan, 

Happy Birthday! Roman and I’s prayer for you is to find more peace, wisdom, guidance, and pure joy. May God continue to have His hand on your life and be your refuge. You deserve nothing but the best! We love you!

You are special, loved, unique in every single way and is a big blessing to countless people.

We are all truly blessed to have you in our lives and we are forever grateful to the Lord for placing you in all of our lives! 

From the bottom of our hearts, we want to emphasize our love for you and we hope you enjoyed the special celebration of your birthday. 

We love you (Nan) Audrey Page! 

On to the celebration post!

Roman and I, along with his parents Mark and Doni took a day trip out to New Jersey to celebrate his Nan’s birthday! It was not too bad of a drive; only took us about 2 & 1/2 hours without traffic!


Entering New Jersey!


Fun fact: George Washington crossed this same exact river on December 25, 1776, during the Revolutionary War. 

We went to Vidalia’s Italian Restaurant to meet with Nan and Papa Ken. It was a beautiful place and the interior as well as the exterior designs caught my eye.


The outside patio area had a nice ambience!


Roman with the birthday girl!!!

It was so nice seeing Nan and Papa Ken again since the last time we saw them was early December. We were excited to catch up and enjoy a nice meal with them!





Doni enjoying her citrus salad!


Every single one was DELICIOUS! The chef is amazing. The chef is actually the owner and if you’re ever in Lawrenceville, NJ, we HIGHLY recommend Vidalia’s if you’re craving some Italian food!

After lunch, we headed down to Princeton and had a nice time strolling around. The weather was great so it was perfect to walk around and see the little shops.


We went to a place called the Greene Street Consignment and oh my gosh, I could stay there for hours! They had the cutest clothes, shoes, bags– everything! Mark recommended the place since he’s been there before and the deals are great. It’s high end products for a steal price. I saw many designer stuff for less than $20 in almost perfect condition!


The famous Green Street


Doni and I trying on some shoes! Roman found these beautiful, sparkly heels but unfortunately they were a size too big for me! I tried them on anyway. Lol


If only they weren’t so big, I totally would’ve gotten them! 


You can’t really see in this picture, but Mark found an AMAZING deal on this spiffy blazer– only $18 for this designer and it retails for $300+ how awesome is that?! And actually, Roman was the one to spot it also. He has such a good eye. Lol 

Once we were done shopping around, we did some more walking around and came across this one bookstore. We had to stop and purchase some books!


We ended the day by going back to Nan’s house. We gave her birthday gifts and she cooked for us her famous lentil soup and hummus!!! THE BEST LENTIL SOUP AND HUMMUS I HAVE EVER TASTED. It was delicious! I’m craving some now just as I write about it.



Gift from Doni!!


Stylish lightweight pants!


Gift from Roman and I! 

Roman and I bought her an essential oil humidifier. For Christmas, I gave one to Roman and he absolutely loved it and can’t sleep at night without it so we figured she’d love it just as much! We gave her some essential oils as well and we set it up for her right there and then and she was thrilled with it!!


BEST. COOK. EVER! Thank you for all the yummy food!

Nan showed me some of her painting that she’s done in the past and look at this painting!!! She is beyond talented. I wish I got a picture of the other ones she did. She’s a true artist!



Baby Roman with his pretty grandma!

Isn’t that baby picture the cutest?! I just want to pinch Roman’s cheeks!! Lol we went through some of Roman’s baby albums and my heart was melting the entire time. So cute!!

We ended up leaving around 8pm and got back to Pennsylvania around 10:30.

We had such a wonderful time! Loved every single moment celebrating Nan’s birthday with her in Jersey with the family.

Happy Birthday once again, Audrey Page!

Lots of love,

Roman & Jesci

    Aw Happy Birthday to Nan!! She looks and sounds like the sweetest soul ever! You can never ever go wrong with Italian food but wow was the presentation on those dishes delectable or what. I’m sure it tasted as good as it looked. I was noticing how Roman was wearing short sleeves outside!?! Sigh, I’m dreaming of warm spring weather! Although we did have a little taste of it two weekends ago (this past weekend, not so much). Looks like a wonderful day well spent!

    xo, JJ
