Birthday Gal

Layla Rosita, birthday gal |

This gal over here had her birthday on the 27th of June! This year went by so ridiculous fast, it’s unbelievable. I can remember my 28th birthday like yesterday… But I have to face the facts and accept that I turned 29! It has been some crazy 12 months: moved in with my boyfriend, we bought our first house, moved out of our house, we had to say goodbye to Romke’s dad, I bought my first car (Yes, I bought my first car a couple weeks ago!! I will show it on the blog later). We have faced so many highs and lows the last couple of months, but we remain positive and keep going strong!

I took the day off on my birthday and spend the day mainly in the kitchen. I prepared some dishes and I made a cheesecake! My parents, brother and nana came to visit us in the evening. We had a delightful summer evening and sat outside with a crispy fire.

I was so incredibly overwhelmed by all the phone calls, video’s, voice messages and texts I received. I was skipping around and was crazy happy with all the birthday love! Thank you so much everyone. <3 I really had that good ol’ birthday feeling!

Later in the summer I wish to give a birthday party and a housewarming, but our house isn’t party proof yet!

What do you usually do on your birthday?

    Happy belated birthday! Those are the cutest number balloons. Also, you’ve done so much this past 12 months. I don’t usually do much on my birthday, haha, so lame!

    • Thank you so much sweetheart! I actually wanted to order them a size up but that’s maybe better for the big 3-0. 😉 Hahaha, no that’s not lame! I wish I did a lot less on my past birthday, the day flew by! Xoxo
