In a bit of girls gone wild, but much closer to home, I had a belated birthday celebration with some of my girlfriends the other night.
The celebration with friends from the UK, Australia and another all-American girl was a reflection of my international life, as was the gift they presented me with. A beautiful hand painted Tunisian bowl was filled with wonderful gifts from around the world, including a sachet with lavender from Provence, Stephen Clarke’s Paris Revealed, a sampler of delicious sweet and savory confitures from Mama Djambo, a Nigerian woman living in Holland who makes the products in her kitchen, a bottle of sparkling wine from Portugal, – rosé, of course.
It was a wonderful, heart-felt gift from a group of ladies who obviously know me pretty well. I mean, look at the name of the sparkling wine they chose for me.
Happy belated anniversary-of-my-25th-birthday to me.
