I never had a birthday party. My mom never did this kinds of things when we were kids so maybe that’s why I don’t do it now either. Also, since my birthday is in the middle of summer – on the 31st of July – many people are on vacation and out of town.
This year I celebrated my birthday with my boyfriend. Just him and I, on Gran Canaria. It was a great day and one of the best birthdays ever – maybe even the best one! (I don’t remember much of the others right now haha)
In the morning we went to have breakfast outside because he knows that breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. I love eating a lot in the morning! My favourites are: fruits, croissant, oatmeal, musli, bread with jam and butter mhmmmmm just thinking of it makes me hungry already.
During the day we did some sightseeing etc. The best part was the evening! We went to have dinner at a really nice restaurant next to the ocean. We ordered a huge fish plate with different kinds of fish and it was super delicious. The waiter – a brasilian guy – was so nice to us. He made us feel very welcome there. After the fish plate the waiters turned off the light of the whole restaurant and brought a slice of cake with candles to me while singing happy birthday. It was sooooo nice of them and I felt super excited… and a bit embarrassed haha. After the dessert Javi gave me so many cute gifts and he made it all so exciting. First he gave me one, then another, then another and so on. It was super funny and the gifts very thoughtful and sweet.
Then we went for a walk along the ocean and he gave me his last present. We sat down on a bench and he gave me earphones and his phone. It was a VIDEO WITH ALL MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS. It was so sweet and I have already watched this video several times because I love it so much. This was definitely the best gift. He has only seen my family once but managend to contact them all and make them do a video for me.
My birthday was on the 31st of July.
P.S.: the day after my birthday it’s my sisters birthday 🙂
