Solange Knowles turned the big 30 last week and celebrated over the weekend with her friends and family, including her big sis Beyonce and Jay Z.
According to reports, a small group of 12 jetted off for San Patricio, New Mexico and relaxed on a 2,200 acre ranch. During the celebration, the group enjoyed some incredible food, indulged in some well spent pool time and even posed for a few impromptu photo shoots.
Before the exotic getaway, Solange listed all her milestones and accomplishments over the past 30 years, which includes buying her first house and wrapping up 4th studio album (72 hours before turning 30).
