For my 26th birthday, my friends and I decided to head to Lantern Fest in Spokane, WA. It was our first time experiencing the event, and although we were rained and hailed on in 40 degree weather, getting to light our lanterns was so worth it in the end.
My husband Jasper and I dedicated our lantern to a better 2017 - Hopes of new adventures and exciting experiences as we get ready to move away from the PNW.
My friend Mandy dedicated her lantern to family members who had recently passed away. See her photos here!
I couldn't have asked for a more sentimental way to celebrate my birthday. I will remember this special time with my loved ones for the rest of my life.
