This week, I celebrated my 22nd birthday and as the pictures may hint at, it did feature a lot of great food! To everyone who was a part of my birthday, thank you so much for your cards, presents, and happy thoughts. I had a really lovely day, the sun was shining, and my daffodils even bloomed fully too!
I spent the most part of the day at home, spoiling myself with a long bath (the Burt’s Bees gift set was actually a Christmas present, but I always enjoy using the lotions and potions when I want a luxurious bath), and then flicking through my Deliciously Ella cookbook – what a wonderful gift! – to find a good recipe for lunch. I popped out to my local shop and oriental supermarket to pick up pine nuts and coriander to put together the truly delicious quinoa tabbouleh recipe. I did add a little twist and will be putting up my spin on the recipe soon for those interested!
After that, I put together the new Curiously Conscious look and enjoyed the sunshine pouring through the windows into the living room – I’m almost certain you can see smiles on those daffodils! My sister and dad then came round and took me out to Wagamama’s for some yummy yasai ramen noodles and “clean green” smoothie. After that they surprised me with a little birthday cake and candles! I don’t think I’ll ever get too old to be excited by birthday cake, really.
So, that was my birthday in a nutshell – I got some lovely messages along the way, spoke to a few old friends and saw my family too! I don’t think I could have been happier. Thank you all again for making it such a great day.
