I got a year older this weekend !
I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by… Only a year ago I was in Mallorca for my birthday with my thesis group, working on one of the biggest projects of my life and having one of the best experiences of my life. Now Im on the other side of the world, in a new amazing city, that has become my hometown and where I have made new incredible friends that made my birthday special and unforgettable.
My birthday was a saturday this year so I sort of got to celebrate all the weekend :) and I was totally spoiled by everyone !
On friday I celebrated with my adoptive family, the Alvos. I went over for shabat and at the same time we celebrated my birthday. I got such nice presents from them and I even got a cake with candles and they sang happy birthday. I had such a lovely evening with them, they really do feel like family and they make me feel like part of it too. I am really grateful of having them in my life.
After shabat on friday I got to celebrate into my birthday with my boyfriend and some of his friends and we ended up going to sleep at like 5.30 so it was a good start to my birthday.
Saturday morning was a busy skype morning. First with my parents, then my uncle, Laura and little baby Lara looking as cute as every and then nonna and nonno. This year it’s the first time in my life that I celebrate my birthday without any member of my family present. All my previous birthday I have celebrate with either my parents, brother, uncle or grandparents. This time round it has the first time I only got to see them though skype.
On saturday I was invited for lunch to Gonzalo’s families house and I got my second cake with candles and happy birthday sang to me. They spoiled me too ! For the rest of the day I slept and just chilled, trying to regain energy for the night.
On saturday night it was time to celebrate with all my new friends in Chile. We went to a bar called Teclados. Many of my friends managed to come over and I got to celebrate with them my birthday. I had a great time and it was nice seeing how many new friends I have in my life since my last birthday. It made me happy seeing how many people were there to celebrate my birthday with me and it’s so nice to have all your friends in the same place.
I had an incredible time !
I want to thank everyone that sent me birthday wished on facebook, that called me or sent me an e mail. Thank you all for making me feel loved.
I also want to thank all the people that were there to celebrate my birthday, that spoiled me and made me feel so loved and special. It was a great, great birthday :) :) :)
