Hey hey hey! Guess who’s 17!!!!!!!! YAYAYAYAY!

If you follow me on instagram, you will definitely already know this, and are probably so tired of hearing the words “Madeline” and “birthday” in the same sentence. BUT I PROMISE, this post marks the official end of my birthday celebrations. I’ll admit this post is a little late, but hey, it’s still February, which means it’s still my birthday month so we’re just going to ignore that!

In true Madeline style, I have an overload of pictures, and I obviously want to share them. So without further adieu, here’s how I celebrated turning 17.


Since my birthday fell on the typically boring day of Tuesday, I used the weekend before the celebrate at my favorite restaurant Ladurée SOHO with my family. As always, it did not disappoint.


Even though my birthday was on a Tuesday, it was so so so special. I felt so loved and was bursting with gratitude.

{Side Note: Let’s just appreciate that the dessert pictured above is the SMALL version of the actual one. Uh, yes, insane, but so perfect for a Madeline Chadban Celebration.}


Even though it looks like I have no friends I promise you, I do!!!! Haha! I just had a small dinner with some of my closest friends this year, and it was just perfect. Not stressful at all, and was such a nice chance to be with a some of my favorite people.

    Loved your bedroom Madeline! I loved the photo too – of you and Gabriel! Lovely to see you growing each day so beautifully “in the Lord.” Over there in New York with so many challenges, beauty, unique – where God has led you and the family.
    The Lord has wonderful plans for every life – and you are wise enough to keep in touch and follow His leading! God’s blessings continue Day by day by day
    Love and prayers always. Noreen.
