Summer Finnish Casual Birthday

I. Love. Birthdays.

I always feel happy when I or one of my close friends or family has a birthday. I love making (and eating) cakes, crafting gifts, drawing cards, selecting photos for the card, and just making someone feel sappy happy festive and special!

I’ve done something right in life to be blessed with a family like this

My brother. My dear brother… who kindly reminds me I’m now closer to 30 than 20….

My boyfriend who will take me rowing so I can play girly-girl

Some really sweet friends

And naturally the fun of opening some incredibly thoughtful gifts!

Birthdays also combine two of my favorite things: singing, and cake

It might be a festive day, but that doesn’t exclude work (we’re still at the cabin  😉 )

And delicious food

All in all a perfect day. I feel the older I get, the more I value the most basic things: family, friends, and seriously good cake. Yeah, I’m humble like that.
