champagne birthday: when you turn the same age as the day you were born
On Saturday, we had "26 le 26" - an evening with good company, music & food (including plenty of carrot cake cupcakes)...
...I had quite the time blowing out my candles (I only got one on the first go).
On my actual birthday (a weekday), Antoine surprised me by getting up early and making some delicious french toast while I opened cards from my family.
|French toast sides: dulce du leche, nutella, yogurt & bananas|
At the party and at work, my Francophone friends were telling me that when you turn the same age as your birth date it is considered your lucky year ("année chanceuse"). After these celebrations, I am already feeling quite lucky. xo
