I celebrated my birthday and my wedding anniversary on Friday, March 15.
And it was terrific to say the least, like a scene straight out of a Christmas movie (Hello Vanessa Hudgens. lol)
I was supposed to be at home all day. I had just flown in from Mumbai a day earlier and was properly frazzled.
I knew the Mister had something up his sleeve of many colors- as usual- but this time, he really caught me off guard.
I had the assumption that we would be going out of town for the weekend, so on Friday, I decided to stay indoors and get my mojo back.
Not even a school errand that morning gave away what the Mister and my house manager were planning behind my back.
I returned to the house a few hours later to a delightful surprise; a bedroom of floating balloons, a cache of gifts that I will be showing you in a few and a smiling manager.
So lets get to it?
The thing with surprises is that they make you nervous- you know it is coming but you don’t know what to expect, or how to react.
And on this day, I had not idea what was in store, but again that is the beauty of it all; the candy store effect.
I have received countless gifts in my life time but this year was special and the timing was right- pun intended- because he got me a Rolex! You guys!
And because it is not a proper Sonabration without cake, your girl got two because one is too cliché. One for the #39th birthday and the other one for the wedding anniversary because the arduous journey of love and marriage is marred by tempests and endless pitfalls. Haha!
Drum rolls please…
After I had the time to cry a little and say a prayer for the years past and the many to come, the Mister and I crowned the birthday Sonabration with a special dinner for two.
Oh and for those who were asking, I got to rock my fresh-off-the closet YSL Opyum sandals- this cute golden dress that made me feel like I was part of a Greek movie and strung my Birkin on my arm for giggles. Lol.
And just like this post, the birthday was soon over.
See you in the next post.
Love and lite
