My husband has always been so amazing at making my birthday special. He is always planning special gifts and dinners and surprise parties. I love him for it, because there is nothing I love more than birthdays. This year though, I begged and pleaded for something low key.
I told him that I didn't feel like getting dressed up and finding a sitter to go out to a fancy dinner. All I wanted to do was sit in my PJ's and eat pizza and cake (because I seriously never get to do that)!
Since my birthday fell on a Monday (and who wants to celebrate birthdays on Monday?) Cornel and Nathan woke me up with breakfast in bed on Sunday morning. It was such a special moment. Nathan climbed on the bed, gave me my card and then proceeded to eat half of my breakfast. I could have never imagined my life so full than at that very moment.
The rest of the day went exactly as planned complete with pizza for lunch. My husband cleaned the entire house while I got to relax with Nathan. What more can a girl ask for?
I was also showered with beautiful roses and presents. I had picked out my gifts while on vacation, so it was nice that I finally got to put them to use. I opened up my gorgeous shoes that I bought in Milan...
I love them...
And then of course there were my earrings that I picked up at the factory in Austria.
Later in the evening I got to enjoy my delicious raspberry tiramisu cake from Maison Vacher. If you are ever in the area you have to stop by, really. This is the best boulangerie in Chamalieres! We've gotten all of our pastries, cakes and breads there for over 3 years because it is seriously THAT good! Those are fresh blackberry macarons on top of the cake...
Of course, I had a little help blowing out the candles. I have to say that even with baby spit all over it, the cake was still delicious!
It was such a special weekend and so glad that I got to spend it with my family. Sadly, on my real birthday I spent the day at work, but I had the memories (and extra cake) to help make it through.
