Birthdays Old and New

Posted on: March 11, 2016

Happy BD

It seems another birthday cropped up on me. How did this happen? Didn’t I just have one? This is my second birthday in Spain. Last year I celebrated at a historical Spanish Finca turned into a restaurant. I wrote about it here. This year hubby took me to a Thai Restaurant called the Papaya Tree where we were joined by my in-laws and friends, including my sweet nine year old friend Ana-Lucia. We had a great time. The food was delicious and the company wonderful.

The cocktail bar next door had a special drink just for me (or so it seemed!)


Here are a couple of pictures from past birthdays.

My twelfth birthday with my curious brothers. The gift I’m opening was my very first watch.


My son found this one from my nineteenth birthday!

I have been blessed with many fabulous birthdays over the years. They are always best when shared with good friends and family. I was overwhelmed this year by the many birthday wishes I received from all over the world via social media. I felt so loved!

Birthdays certainly do come more quickly now, don’t they? But the pictures from past birthdays supporting this one make it all so lovely! 😉

It was a special time. Glad you enjoyed all the pictures, past and present. I don’t like getting older but it is better than the alternative. xo

I can’t believe you’ve had two birthdays in Spain! Is it me or is time going faster and faster?
