Les Scènes du Week-end {22}

The special event this past weekend?
My birthday!

It looked something like this:

Saturday morning:
sleep in, have home-made brunch, open cards & presents.

Saturday afternoon:
drive to our mystery destination,
We spent hours relaxing in the water
& I also had an hour-long massage as FQ's present to me.
So. Great.

Saturday evening:
stop in Lausanne, Switzerland for dinner
& a few festive beverages at a really fun brewpub.

We arrived back in Annecy at 11:58 p.m.,
full, relaxed & happy.

It was a lovely birthday.

Yummy brunch chez nous.
Hooray for birthday cards!
This was FQ's present to me... any guesses why??
Just two of the many pools filled with Swiss spring-water.
view from our table at the pub in Lausanne
So many beers, so little time...
A funny part of Erin's gift to me.  Does this mean she thinks I've been in France for too long?
My friend Julie sent me several sweet kitchen gadgets, including this.
Teatime just got way better, thanks to these cookies from my brother in Australia.
My friend Dawn knitted this scarf for me.  Swoon!  Hurry up & get colder, weather!

  9. Thanks for the birthday girl compliments, ladies! I didn't want to share that last photo, because you can see my grey hair. Le sigh. But then I figured "c'est la vie" & I hit "post"! So thanks for making me feel good(e)!
