The morning gives birth to a sky of sea-hued blue. The evening gives birth to a sky speckled with stars. The night gives birth to darkness that shall not subdue. The dawn shall give birth to light and love for all scars. 190122
I normally have a birthday party by the decade and never found neither the need, nor inclination to gather friends and family together to celebrate every year. Since I did not travel overseas for my birthday this year and both Ante and my mom were in town, I decided to have an intimate dinner celebration at the elegant @ivoryonsunset with a few family and friends. It was an evening filled with beautiful people, whimsical wines, and hopeful wishes to usher another year. I decided on the 2008 @champagne_mailly Les Éschansons to begin the evening of simple but special revelry. I shall have a birthday gathering on years I am not traveling and I shall start my future birthdays with coffee and Champagne.
