This is why I'm a firm believer in celebrating birthdays. My family always manages to turn it into a special day. Every year there are daffodils and a few well selected presents from my mum and cake and everyone's super nice and makes me feel that they're happy that I exist which is just great, obviously.
My brother Konstantin made this t-shirt for me, I'm wearing clothes that make me happy today, like the skirt which is a part of an Austrian dirndl found at a flea market and recently shortened. My brothers and I had breakfast together and my dad and I had lunch in a fancy restaurant where he said encouraging, positive things and patted my shoulder and gave me more daffodils and Proust. And Nikolaus gave me tea and newspapers which was actually really thoughtful and lovely. I'm super lucky to have a family like that. It's been a good day.
