Each and every single one of us is such a special gift. So when it’s your special day, I believe that you should take some time to celebrate.
Today is my special day and I’m seizing the opportunity to have a lovely meal with my family followed by what I can only describe as a smÃ¶rgÃ¥sbord of dessert.
Some years I know what kind of birthday dessert I want. Some years my mom makes it and some years I’ll order something special.
This year, I couldn’t decide so I went birthday dessert crazy.
There will be apple tart (pictured here), Ã©clairs (chocolate and coffee), butter cookies, palmiers, a teeny weeny fruit tart and a pastry called a Mirabeau (it’s chocolatey and hazelnutty and crÃ¨me chantillyesque). All from Rahier.
To those of you that have already made my birthday weekend such a treat, I thank you.
To my family (especially my mommy), I love you!
Happy Birthday to me and to all the other lovely people born on this fine day!
