Bouquets & birthday cards. Well, Scandinavia still amazes me, and my family and friends seem to know that. I got Swedish cards and cookbooks, Swedish food, an Elsa Beskow mug and a merino wool hat for J. My brother always chooses the most beautiful cards, this time one with elefants by Katja Zwirnmann from Graphisches Atelier in Leipzig.

It's hard to believe how much good has come my way in the past thirty years! Last week on Saturday afternoon, I celebrated with my closest family and dearest friends who made my birthday extra special. Birthday parties are just that much better when many of one's loved ones can be there. We had very good food, coffee and delicious cakes from Anna & Jagetsberger. I got some beautiful bouquets, our living room now looks like a florist, and many, many fabulous gifts. I had a great time!
