This Monday was started with an anti-bloat green smoothie and a run by the river in sunshine. There’s something magical about every Monday because each of them can feel like a new fresh start. A fresh start that is especially welcome if you’ve spent Sunday celebrating a birthday by eating cake and having drinks.
Yesterday it was my little sister’s 22nd birthday. It’s not too often that we get to celebrate birthdays together, so we tried to make the best of this one. We started the day with champagne, prosecco gummy bears and meringue cake. I think a sweeter and a yummier breakfast doesn’t exist. After recovering from the sugar rush, we were headed to a near by hotel which has a super nice bar downstairs. The place is one of my favorites around here, thanks to it’s beautiful decor and big windows. In addition, it was sunny and 11 degrees yesterday, which made us feel like spring is finally making its way here. So all in all, quite a perfect day. I can’t even remember when was the last time I’ve laughed as much as yesterday.
Like Mondays, springs too are somehow very magical. It’s the best feeling when days are getting longer, sunnier and warmer, and people around us happier. Maybe it’s the change, or the hope for better, or just the energy that sunshine gives us. Or maybe we just are more present ourselves when we see the nature changing around us.
