A 30th Birthday is special for most people, it is a toast to the end of an era and new beginnings. To celebrate her 30th Birthday party, Lee Anne from Petal & Vine Photography decided to throw a birthday party in honor of her guests rather than herself. Her 30th birthday gathering was centered around gratitude.
In Lee Anne’s interview with Inspired By This she talks about her twenties and the importance of celebrating the people in her life.
Lee Anne says, The goal of this “Gratitude Gathering” was to gather the people who have loved me well and who have been present in my life, the people who have taught me the essential things that make me who I am and the people whose love helped save me from an awfully dark season of my life. I had postpartum depression after my second child was born, 5 years ago, and really fully didn’t believe I’d make it through that season.
“My hope was that each guest would feel like they were coming to their own (surprise!) birthday party. They thought they were just coming to a party for me, where they were told not to bring gifts.”

Lee Anne was the one handing out gifts, treating her guests to dinner, and thanking them for being integral parts of her life.
