“From our birthday, until we die,
Is but the winking of an eye.”
William Butler Yeats
There will always be that one week every year where you feel extra special. My birthday is always during that perfect time; right after Christmas and New Years Day! And yet somehow, we always expect the worse. For example, there is always the possibility that no one will remember your birthday; except maybe your parents. How do we deal with this? we sulk and eventually we’ll celebrate it by ourselves; by means of gulping down a glass of wine, eating chocolate and watching your favourite movie.
Luckily that wasn’t me this year. The best birthdays finishes with presents, joy and laughter. This especially is true when you receive a parcel from a European country; in this case, Spain! What could be more exciting than a package from your favourite retail store? Arrived in a delightful encased box with one simple, yet elegant name: Zara!
