The mister’s birthday.


I love planning simple celebrations for birthdays and other occasions, you probably know that already if you follow this blog;). Bilal’s birthday was last week and even though we had a hard time finding a gift for him that he liked (Honestly, why is it so hard to get anything for men??), we had great fun planning a celebration at home. Balloons, a celebratory breakfast, cupcakes from the grocery store, birthday card with a special ‘balloons’ drawing by Anya, a small gift, some decorations around the house, made our version of a homemade celebration. Oh also, I wrote a birthday message for Bilal on the bathroom mirror, because I just like to do silly things like that. Anya walked in later that day as I was putting on makeup and went, ‘KIS NE LIKHA YEH MIRROR PEH’ WHO WROTE ON THE MIRROR, ‘MAMA, paper peh likhte hain, mirror peh nahi likhte!’, MAMA, you write on paper not on the mirror. And I didn’t know what to say so I just nodded! :\ lol.

Anyways, take a peek.








I believe we only get a limited number of these occasions to celebrate alongside our loved ones and we should try not to miss the chance to make our spouse, our parents, our siblings, our kids feel special :)

Thanks for reading and stopping by!
