We have just celebrated the first of any Italian based celebrations – Matt’s birthday (next up, my birthday then Christmas, woop!). It was also his 30th birthday, so kind of a big deal.
We had friends around Saturday night, which was also our first time hosting people at our flat. So many firsts! We had cake (a two-layer blueberry and lemon affair, sandwiched together with lemon curd and iced with lemon buttercream icing. And yes, I was pretty proud of that, why do you ask?) and then presents and a Skype date with his parents on the morning of. There was also a ridiculous hat, but what are celebrations without them ..
Happy birthday Matt! Here’s to more Italian adventures.
