Sharing is caring!
It’s official, I am 30 – and might I say this has been the best birthday I have ever had. I have never felt more loved by my friends and family than I do right this moment. It is a glorious, heart-warming feeling that has made me truly grateful and ridiculously happy.
I was feeling rather dull at the thought of being sick on my bday. No party, no booze, no Yummilicious food.. and an almost sinking feeling of no presents too! Cos I knew hubby’s plans were all derailed when i had to be admitted.
With that glum thought, I returned home after taking my IV shot at 8.. n since we always celebrate at 5th midnight I suggested to my sis that we should just buy a cake n get it over with. We could all party some other time.
We cut the cake at midnight
Then the cards arrived ..
then a present, then another and then another – a total 30 gifts – each a unique wish for me. I’ll stop typing and let the pics do all the talking.
Wish 1: Fly high – yet make time time to smell the roses
Wish 2: Capture ur favorite moments
Wish 3: 2 hearts beating as 1
Wish 4: Be a fashion diva
