woot! today is the big day ... 21!
it sounds so unreal to me!
this afternoon my mom and justin are taking me out to my favorite local restaurant, cream & crepe.
(they make the most delicious crepes and delectable desserts.)
then, in the evening we're going out for a late dinner with my ridiculously awesome cousins.
i presume there will be dancing, drinking and above all - a damn good time.
i hope everyone has a splendid weekend.
tomorrow i'm off to my dad's for more magical birthday celebrations
(not to mention, fish day, a celebration of all things fishy!)
the picture above was taken yesterday at my grandparent's house.
can you believe my grandpa found that bicycle on the side of the road?
yup - some crazy fool was throwing it away.
my family reunion went really well ... the afternoon was sunny and relaxing.
people visited, played cards, and ate loads of pineapple, pastas and grilled perfections.
it was lovely.
not long after we arrived i noticed my cousin, erin, sitting lonely on a bench,
helplessly looking out at all the kids splish-splashing around in the lake next to our picnic area.
i asked her if she wanted to go for a swim - and you should have seen her eyes light up!
so off we went to slip into suits.
the water was a bit chilly at first, but i finally had enough courage to dunk my head under.
and just like that! i was soaked!
it was the most wonderful feeling ...
i was suddenly 10 years old again,
doing somersaults underwater, mimicking the likes of a dolphin.
i honestly spent a good 3 hours swimming the day away,
and it was delightful.
if only i can swim every day of sweet summer :-)
hope your weekend was magical.
