birthday scenes

I had such a lovely birthday. When Jeremy asked me where I wanted to go for lunch, the only thing that sounded good was a scenic drive to Graskop and lunch at Harrie's Pancakes. It was so relaxing and fun. The banana caramel pancakes at Harrie's are the best. Double yum. Of course we had to stop by the chocolate shop afterwards for some espresso dark chocolate. It was my birthday, after all. We also bought some kudu chunks at the biltong shop. Maybe to balance out all the sweets?

Isn't this birthday gift amazing? Anneke, my sister-in-law is so amazingly talented. Not only is this beautiful but she wrote a poem about my dreams around home. I wanted to cry from joy when she gave it to me. I love how she incorporated the photo I took of the kids in the bluebonnets and our family photo by Alisha. It's a birthday gift I will forever treasure.

Thanks for the birthday wishes the other day! I appreciate the love!

Graskop and Harrie's Pancakes! Two of my favorite places in the whole world. I can't believe you got a picture of Harrie's without all the sellers of macadamia nuts and cashews who are usually outside! We've eaten many nuts from those vendors. We were in a grocery store in Graskop in 2010 and there was music playing over the intercom. I realized it was a group singing "There is a House in New Orleans" in Afrikaans. We live in New Orleans and it was so surreal. So glad you were able to celebrate your birthday in such a beautiful place! And received such a special gift.
