Day 16

Tomorrow is my birthday. I love my birthday, or better yet, my birthday week. It's filled with dinner parties with friends and family, sweet treats and beautiful presents. I miss my parents and my sibling that are now far away, in Iceland and USA. We had many birthday traditions when I was growing up. The birthday boy or girl was awoken early in the morning by parents and siblings, who entered the bedroom holding a candle and singing the birthday song, jumped on the bed showering the birthday boy/girl with kisses and birthday wishes, and then presents were opened and cake eaten while still in bed! My mother made my favorite chocolate cake with white frosting.
Now I make new traditions, dinner parties with new friends and inlaws, presents arrive with the mail (with the italian postservice the even arrive weeks after my birthday) and I bake my own treats.

This is how my birthday feels like now!

Mmm, the cupcakes look delicious! Great background, and love the idea of the hearts circling the cupcakes. Happy birthday!
