the day I was the “Birthday Girl”…

The day started, not too early, with Hubby’s Birthday wishes.
I stayed for a while in the upstairs’ living room, with a cup of coffee (I miss those cups, Ricardo) procrastinating, walking around and peeking in my sister’s laptop, at the same time as people downstairs yelled at me asking what I wanted for breakfast.

I went downstairs and they were almost lined up, starting to sing “Happy Birthday to You”.
Lots of smiles, hugs and kisses and of course me being tearful.

I think breakfast had everything one can ask for… and I asked for pancakes with maple syrup, sunny side up… well it had to be vegetarian for me, so I didn’t eat the bacon.

After that we went to see The Jersey Boys a musical show based on the lives of one of the most successful 1960s rock 'n roll groups, the Four Seasons.

I just loved it!!!! It was a tremendous show and all of the performers were brilliant. Its pretty non stop so you don't get much of a chance between one great song and the next to take it all in.
Everything you may have heard about the show is true - it's spectacular, enlivening, and by far and away the best way I can think of to spend just under three hours.

Highlights for me were when Frankie sang “My Eyes Adore You”, “Can't Take My Eyes Off You” and the great TV studio sequences.

Then we went dinner at Milestones, where one can relax and have diner in a semi-casual and stylish environment while enjoying meals inspired from around the world and of course vegetarian, which allowed me to eat the “Fresh Spinach and Tomato Capellini”.

The cake and champagne were waiting for us at home,

where surprise of surprises Hubby presented me with a jewel, a gold necklace with three sapphires, so beautiful and chic. Timeless.

And as they were taking me so many pictures I felt like a star with many paparazzi flashes on me.

I have no words to describe you all the emotions and feelings that crossed my heart.

It was the greatest way to spend a birthday and I want to thank my Sister, her Family and Hubby for all they have given me.

Lots of Love...

Eu estou bem (por dentro)na medida do possível, pois tenho tido perdas e problemas de saúde em família desesperadores, mas procuro compreender o porquê de tudo isso estar acontecendo e manter minha mente firme no positivismo, nas boas palavras, ações e pensamentos e DEus tem me ajudado muito nessa missão, que na verdade depende muito mais de mim,porque com certeza ele quer o melhor pros seus filhos.
