Bruxelles M'a Dit: Joyeux Anniversaire, Bon Anniversaire [It's My Birthday!]

My birthday in Europe.  Oh wow, not what I was expecting.

I like celebrating my birthday with friends, I really do.  But at the same time, it's a bit bizarre for me this semester.  I'm studying abroad (one of the older study abroad students; I've only met one other senior and she's younger than me!) and without people that I usually hang out with.

But it was fantastic.  It was nice.  I got presents from people (especially sweet considering that I didn't expect any), had a delicious dinner (even though I made the dessert and there was a lot of suspicion over how the cupcakes would turn out), and got to dance in a national monument.

In the end, all I have to say is:

Merci à tout le monde! C’était un anniversaire bizarre, heureux et fantastique!

I got so lucky: new dress, sweet card, cookbook and some vino!
