Happy birthday Christina !!


Today dearest blogging friend Christina is having a blog birthday party. If you don't know Christina yet, I invite you to meet her on her blog Soul Aperture. And surely, like me, you will love her and want to read more of her. This morning, I was trying to find out how long ago did our paths crossed in blogland. Oh it's been long ago ! Little by little, we became friends across the ocean. To say she's a beautiful person is a bit short or too easy. Christina's voice is unique. It's no cheap talk. It's all about feelings. It's about life. Real life. Her words ring true and I'm so sure her readers all want to give her a big hug after reading her posts and thank her just for being her!

So here's to you my sweet Christina, in honor of your birthday and your series of simple things which you happily celebrated on your magical blog....

If you were here, I would love to share some of my simple things with you.

This morning I would give you a colorful breakfast...(yes, we'll have some jamon serrano too!)
Before noon, we would head to the market in the village, walking through the narrow streets.

We would have lunch on a simple table, happily chatting and listening to the sounds of nature
Naturally, after lunch we would have a siesta in the shade
And we would spend the evening in harmony with nature, sipping refreshing cocktails and nibbling on cakes...of course...of course
Happy birthday Christina !!
and I wish you all a wonderful week end !!


ps : dear blogging friend Se'lah who's always doing a super job at connecting people organized this surprise simple things birthday celebration for Christina. She gathered Christina's friends to participate to the event. To see the list of friends participating, go here and enjoy the simple things !

my sweet Lala,
You made me cry with all this beauty. I took each step carefully, in hoping one day, we will be there, together.
From day one, you have been there for me. Laughing or tears, you have always been by my side. You are the blessing of a sister, from heaven above.
I love ya!

Dear Lala, what a wonderful friendship you and Christina have. I'm not surprised to see that his wonderful kinship has developed over the years. I can see, in both of your posts, so many similarities.
Let us know when your birthday comes around so we can "plan" a fabulous day for you.
