Celebrating a new year of bliss…

bday leveling

I don’t have birthdays, I level up.

 

Today is a new blessed day in my seemingly fast going life. So much happens that you forget where you are right now; life’s way of telling you to move on.

In this year I lost and gained, I won and learned, I saw great icons pass away and new ones appearing. Quoting one of my icons, my father, life is a floating river, going against it will break you. So today I would like to pat myself on the shoulder, and be grateful for what I have today; an extra year of wisdom.

Sara’s first year on earth…

My niece, Sara, our sweet strawberry had experienced  all the four seasons for the first time in her life. Being half Egyptian from my brother-in-law’s side, a dear and one of a kind man, this outfit fits perfectly, since it is now strawberry season in Egypt, she is celebrating in the time of prosperity back home, the same prosperity I hope for her future life in our family.

The only thing I’m sad about is not being there to celebrate that one in a life time day, the first birthday. Also, the cake looked amazing!!

Happy birthday my dear niece, may this year be the door which beyond its threshold lies health, wealth and prosperity.
