WOO HOO! Birthday!

Hello lovely APJ Friends and Family.

You may know it’s my birthday today. It couldn’t go by without some cake. But today’s cake is a little different, YOU get to make a wish and blow on the picture.

BIRTHDAY WISHES

Close your eyes

Wish for something simple and achievable in your life

Hold the thought for 3 seconds

Now say THANK YOU for four things that you are grateful for. Doesn’t matter how small or big.

Here’s the cake……

Blow!

So I don’t know if your wish will come true but you know you have 4 things to be grateful for. You’re doing better than almost everyone else in the world.

What will I be wafting on this special day? Vintage Shalimar Parfum. I smell so fabulous and I’m smiling like a fool. With Guerlain’s Shalimar it always feels like love.

    • It is a wonderful day here in Sydney. House is done, had my first swim of the year (bracing) and been lying in the sun. Now pleasantly peach and ready for anything.

    • Don’t worry there are definite signs of cake in my future. Jin even watched Making Icing Videos with 4 or 5 different YouTube crews.
      How sweet is THAT?

  6. Happiest of birthdays Portia. I’ve made my wish and have thought about four things I’m grateful for. One of them is having got to know you in the past few months and I’m really looking forward to our continuing friendship – fragranced and unfragranced. Much love.

  7. Happy happy birthday dear Portia! Since I live in the US my wish is arriving a bit late, but it is nonetheless sincere. (I had to go over the gratitude limit, because I have so much to be grateful for when I really start thinking about it). All the best to you and I hope this is the start of a spectacular year.

      Once you start noticing how great your life is it’s hard to believe you ever thought you were badly off, isn;t it?
