Last night I planned a special surprise birthday party for my husband Misha’s 30th. It was one of the best nights we’ve had (aside from our wedding of course) and the best part.. the birthday boy enjoyed himself! The amazing crew at Doltone House took care of us and went beyond to make it magical.

One of Misha’s close friends, Chris Brown, is a part of 4 piece band Kotadama who revealed themselves after the entree and provided us with an phenomenal night of entertainment! The guys played a mix of old classics to modern faves (there was some serious dancing happening)… Their originals are unreal and I can’t thank them enough.

At 9pm I planned for a showcase dance for Misha danced by his students from our studio Dance Planet. Goosebumps covered my body watching. Misha may have had a tear. The challenge was co-ordinating rehearsals so the surprise wasn’t blown! So proud of everyone for making it so perfect.

You only turn 30 once. Happy birthday angel!
