chocolate cake, antibiotic & love

How stupid it can be, being sick on a summer day, which it was my birth-day???
Really bad timing!

But I enjoyed in little steps "my day".

My son made a paint for me. 
My husband decorate the table, took us to the doctor, comfort me while I was crying for being sick & could not celebrate with my friends, made a delicious pizza & make me feel special anyway.
My friends & family were on the phone sending me love & kind wishes.
And, I got beautiful presents:

Here is a little video our son made. Mami, that's a little window into the day, so you can feel part of it!

Thank you soooooo much!

pieces of a loving heart

This weekend we are invited to a wedding!

The brides mother & some friends of the couple
 organized different "homeworks" for the guests.

I've made a card, wich it was totally inspired @ a pocket for money.

I called it pieces of a loving heart, because for me a relationship it's made of pieces. 
Pieces of love, happiness, ideas, wishes, humor, laughter, tears, 
great moments & expectations.

I hope they keep adding pieces to this heart to grow into a unique relationship. 
Then, I believe in love that last forever.

We had to prepare a page for the guest book, with some wishes 

& we have to give as a present, a book wich for some reason has a special meaning for us. 
We choose: "the orange girl" by Jostein Gaarder.
A love story wich last through time & space. 

I hope you have a great time doing what ever you wanna do this weekend. We will be celebrating, dancing & crying in the name of love.
