birthday boy

hello there...
It's been a while and the holiday is nearing it's end and Monday we return to the rat race...booooo, so not in the mood for that. Especially since we are still on an euphoric high from our break-away to Zanzibar, the island of spices, friendly people and the most breathtaking white beaches and turquoise blue water. See how I am getting carried away there....so the Zanzibar trip will have a post (or several parts) all on it's own...I'm working on it :) 

For now I wanted to dedicate today's post to my best friend, partner in life, lover and boyfriend who's birthday we celebrate yesterday! A year ago we were merely friends and I met up with him quickly and bought him a beer. Flash forward a year later and look where we are. Blessed to have him in my life, the walk this journey with me, to make memories and share the good and the bad times!
Beautiful heart and soul

We (yes I was spoiled too, hehe) went to Santé Hotel and Spa where we booked ourselves in for a full day spa experience at Bakwena Spa. It was an amazing experience and felt so relaxed and rejuvenated after all the treatments. Today the muscles are a bit sore, but no complaints at all!

I was planning on taking Chris for dinner the evening to end the day, but when we got home after 6 we were so relaxed and tired that we ended up having (my first attempt) a chocolate cake I baked. Dark chocolate and hazelnuts heaven....very rich.
Cake time!

It was a great day and I'm glad that I could be part of it....here's to many more years to come ♥
