The past few months have been full of celebrations for reigning Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock. She and fiancé Chris Siegfried attended Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici’s wedding in January, had their own engagement party in February, and then attended Renée Oteri’s low-key wedding last month. Whew. Now, it’s time for the attention to just be focused on Des, as she turns a year older.

Des turns 28 today, April 8, and she is definitely feeling the love on Twitter. Numerous members of Bachelor Nation have reached out to Des on her special day, including guys from her season of Bachelorette, along with some of the show’s best-known alums.

“Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes!!” she tweeted in the afternoon. “Means more than you know.” She also adds on her blog that she’s OK with getting older because she knows that “with the years comes wisdom and great memories.” Well said, Des!

So what exactly does Des have planned to celebrate the big day? During the early part of the evening, Des and Chris went bowling in colorful ‘80s-inspired attire (see pic above), which sounds like the greatest birthday celebration ever. And we can’t wait to find out what else they have planned!

Here are some of the happy thoughts that Bachelor Nation is sending Des’s way:
