The morning of my birthday
(Amanda made a lot of art for me)

My family spoiled me on my 40th Birthday. It began with Hubby making breakfast for me and later throwing a surprise party with the help of our girls and my in-laws. The spread of food was compliments of my mom-in-law. Hubby made the iced-tea punches while I was out. I really didn't suspect anything, since we had reservations at a 5 star hotel in Cape Town and I thought the day was full enough.

We were given a booklet of vouchers for the Taj Hotel as a Christmas gift, and this was our first time taking advantage of them. Twenty years ago, on my 20th birthday, my husband and I had our first dinner date at the Taj Hotel in Bombay (now Mumbai). It was a "coincidence" that we were given the vouchers to this particular hotel and in the same year as the 20th anniversary of our first date. (I believe that God had His hand in it.) My in-laws stayed with the girls and took them to school the following morning and Hubby hired a Mercedes so that we could go in style.
