Tarata-tan… My birthday was this past Sunday! You guys know my excitement when it comes to my b-day (I don’t know if the excitement is going to last till I am 50) but meanwhile, I still get all bubbly and happy on June 5th.
My sister is staying with us so she and Jimmy made sure I had a wonderful time. We had pre-party drinks at home with friends (with two cakes y’all) and then went dancing.
This year is going to be my last 20’s year so……… I am going to make the best of it!
My petit pois is in Madrid!
Our usual pose: me smooching Jimmy
Gifts from Jimmy, Stefi, Ivan, Maria Teresa and Juan
My cute succulent from Laura and Alejandro 🙂
My gree tea, gluten-free, lactose-free cake brought by my lovely friends Maria Teresa and Juan 🙂 Isn’t this the prettiest cake you have ever seen?
I have to confess I didn’t feel the year change on January 1st. I was so relaxed and prepared for it a month before that it felt quite good. We went to Barcelona to visit my brother-in-law and had a very nice time. (Barcelona post coming this Friday) It is such a beautiful city that I can’t wait to visit again!
Another lovely thing is that Daniel (the little sunshine of my life) arrived from Dublin to spend a couple of days in Madrid. Having him around reminds me how lucky I am to have such a wonderful friend. We celebrated his birthday and had so much fun!
I hope you guys had a lovely New Year’s Eve and are starting the year with a solid foot. I want to share with you my 6 favorite things that make January rock…
1) Stefi knows me so well. She sent me this lovely gift and I couldn’t be happier adding it to our home decor.
2) My face of pure happiness next to Daniel in his birthday. (Photo taken by the fabulous Christian.)
3) These guys. We giggled all day.
4) My friend Maria Teresa got me this beautiful ballerina from Vienna! I loved it!
5) Wrapping gifts with spray-painted pasta ribbons.
6) Jimmy made some “antipasto” and we had a movie marathon on Sunday night.
How is your year going so far?
Our tree is tiny just like our home. It’s kind of funny how small it is. (If Nina was here it would be the perfect tree for her). It was really easy decorating this tree, not to mention very fast too. This year I wanted to add some white to the tree and my little snowmen look absolutely cute.
I have to tell you I wasn’t sure if I was going to be in the festive mood for Christmas…but who am I kidding…I am always in that mood.
Here a little tour to our Christmas impromptu decor.
