As most of you are aware, I've given up chocolate for Lent. If you aren't already aware, you must be living on the moon... because I haven't stopped talking about my withdrawals. I'm sure that most of you think that Lent is 40 days, but just so you know, that figure doesn't count Sundays. From Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday is a total of 46 days. 46 long, chocolate-less days.
Only 5 days remain until I can finally indulge in my most favourite food once again. Last night I had a dream about chocolate. I was eating a beautiful Cadbury Top Deck bar (just like the one that my amazing roommate brought back from her recent Sydney trip), happier than any other girl on the planet at that very moment. And then, I woke up.
I must admit, it has been a great test of my willpower. If I can give up chocolate, I can do anything... but most of the time I'd just rather not.
All her friends showed up to wish her a very happy birthday and to bid her farewell!
And guess what? Almost all her family was there as well to celebrate with her!
Between the horse rides, the magnificient Barney cake and all the slides, Skye was running everywhere, playing with everyone...Basically, having a ball! And it was a ball!
Her daddy and uncle Fadi set up the tables and the balloons. Her aunt Marie fixed her hair beautifully, she had her party dress on, a bit of glitter on the face and off we went to the park! It was a joined birthday with her best friend Oliver.
I just want to thank everyone who made her day possible, all her friends, her family and her neighbours. Thank you for all the pretty birthday cards and the gifts. I'll let the photos do the talking...
