You already know we celebrated April Fool’s with a tricky post that got some hearts pumping. But the day before that, we celebrated my birthday!
For only the third time in my life I shared a birthday with the Easter Bunny this past Sunday. And to help me celebrate, Jon and Nalena came into town for a visit. Like those wise men, they came bearing wonderful gifts. Gifts of homegrown green beans.
And beautifully personalized sugar cookies. She’s talented like that.
It was perfect. Especially since we made lentil curry with naan, a dish we used to always pair with green beans. That very morning I thought, “Too bad we won’t have green beans this time.” And a few hours later Jon walks through the door with none other than the exact food that was missing from the perfect meal. And a veggie that is impossible to find, at least in our small town. I was one happy girl.
And nibbling on Isaiah’s cute cookie leg that had broken off in the journey as a little snack before lunch was quite nice too!
The next day Isaiah and I had some quality time together. We spent some time by the lake behind our house and Isaiah whipped up the perfect chocolatey birthday cake, recipe compliments of Aunt Marilyn.
Turning 29 on Easter Sunday was a great way to ring in my first birthday here in Paraguay.
Wow, I remembered writing a post about my 28th birthday in Ireland. That was around the time we started this blog. It’s hard to believe we’ve been at it for over a year!
