Not only is it a glorious sunny day in Amsterdam, but I am being treated like a princess on this special day. So far it has started with a cup of tea in bed (oh, Alfred), and there is the softest warm breeze coming through the windows. Pre-celebrations last night were a hit, my guests loved my all-Australian playlist and I even had requests for a copy of the compilation! It was an international mix of cultures with French, Australian and Dutchies all mingling, and champagne a-flowing. Thank you everyone for your birthday wishes leading up to this wonderful day. I have had a fabulous birthday week here in the (blog)house and I hope you’ve enjoyed it too! I will leave you for a day or so, just to catch my breath. No doubt I will miss you all for the next 48 hours though. If you haven’t had a chance to catch all this week’s posts, please scroll down to view them, they are full of the good stuff of life!

Before I sign off on this post, HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY to all you fellow-aussies! Hope you have a fabulous weekend, I’ll be thinking of all of you celebrating while I indulge in my own birthday celebrations here on the other side of the world. Lots o’ love, pxx

    Pia, dear Pia, I wish you not only a happy birthday, but a happy decade – the 30’s will be the Best!
    I haven’t “known” you for long but your blog is a daily inspiration, you’re a real artist, and your enthusiasm is a treat.

    Well, Pia…timing may not be my strong suit but I was thinking about you on your birthday if that makes up for anything. So for now…a belated…HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY!

    You may miss some things from your 20’s…but being in your 20’s probably won’t be one of them 😉

    Happy Belated Birthday, Pia! Even though I’m a bit younger than you (22), most of my friends are your age strangely enough!

    What kind of drink is that? Such a vibrant green! (And I love the ice hearts!)

    Hi Julie, thanks for stopping by to wish me a happy birthday! The drink is actually ‘straight from a bottle’, it is called ‘Get 27’ and is a mint drink, some Frenchies love it for summer served with soda or lemonade on ice. I am not a huge fan of the drink, it’s a little too strong for me but I am going to try different recipes with it as I love the colour and the name too!

    Thanks Anna! I’m so glad you like 🙂
