The Last of the Roaring 20s

I've decided to start a blog on my 29th birthday. I've designed the layout of my blog way in advance so that I could get it up and running today. I've never been really successful in maintaining and upkeeping a blog, and this is my third and latest attempt at a blog that creates hopes, beliefs and inspirations *fingers crossed*.

One of the many birthday calls I've received today made me think. My dear friend was right - this year is the final year for me to refer to my age as "the 20s" - not late, not mid and definitely not early.

As I approach the big 3-0 exactly 365 days from today, I'm thankful to be able to celebrate another milestone with my family and friends. I'm thankful for the birthday cakes I've cut (my third in 2 days), thankful for fun family times, thankful for the friends that have become like family, thankful for cousins and colleagues, thankful for a funny, loving husband... and most of all, thankful to be alive to see myself through yet another exciting and challenging year.

Appetizer consisting of slices of duck breast, smoked salami, foie gras, etc
Mushroom soup drizzled with truffle oil... satisfying!

My main dish - Atlantic cod
This is moi wearing a floral Miss Selfridge dress which was a Birthday gift to myself

Hubby's Master Kobe beef burger served with chips
Camwhoring as usual
My so-called birthday cake - a raspberry tiramisu which was so-so only. Alwin seems to think the serving bowl is a saucepan

Thank you, dear Alwin, for a great birthday dinner and gift (an iPhone 4S!). My heart always goes a-flutter when we re-visit the hotel where we had our wedding reception.
