Take one Canadian girl in les Alpes.
Add the ups & downs of living in France.
Cover with melted cheese...
Et voilà !

Bon anniversaire Erin!

Today is my dearest friend Erin's birthday.

Whenever the two of us get together, 
it tends to look something like this:
At my French wedding reception, August 2009.
At my Canadian wedding reception/carport dance party, July 2010.
Trying {unsuccessfully} to take a self-portait in the van, Victoria, February 2011.
Do you notice anything similar in these three photos?

How about the huge smiles?  
{Ok, you can't actually see them in that last shot, but don't be picky!}

Besides making me smile,
Erin is the kind of friend who really truly listens 
& always knows what to say
{or what not to say}.
It's quite remarkable.

Whenever I call her to moan & groan about 
or the other, 
she always cheers me up
& I hang up the phone with a smile on my face.

So won`t you pop over to Erin`s lovely blog
to wish her some birthday cheer today?

I don`t get to see Erin on her birthday, since
she`s in Canada & I`m in France,
(le sigh)
but I`m going to pretend that today we`re celebrating together, 
eating birthday cake
& posing for yet another smiley photo.

Happy birthday to you, Erin!


  1. Oh, Em... you're going to make me cry! Thanks for this lovely post. I'm pretending we're together today with big, cheesy smiles too. Shall we drink tea and eat a big slice of birthday cake? I'm thinking vanilla, with lots of layers!

    I miss you. love, E xoxo

  2. PS: We take an awesome photo, you and I!

  3. yes you both do!!! :) this birthday post just made my heart melt... it's life's greatest gift to have a friend like you two have in each other--



  4. Oh, you two make me smile. And laugh! Even though you can't see your smile in the last pic, your eyes are laughing. Thanks for sharing this, Em, and for being such a lover of birthdays (and life in general), Erin. Lovely to follow you both via your beautiful blogs!
