my birthday celebration :: bali

im not big on surprises. and birthdays. hate the suspense and the attention which is hilarious because on any regular day, im all "look at meeee!!" *superstar pose* but there's something about surprise parties and the huge "SURPRISE!" that makes me nervouse. love planning them.. but would hate it if it was mine. 

so when daniel said that he had a surprise for me.. i was all "uh oh..." 


but he did super good! we had a lovely brunch with blake and ran around town running errands, then after we put him down for a nap, i was told to freshen up and was whisked off to...


BALI!

so crazy, right? a page right out of a storybook! i couldn't believe my luck! and how did i miss out on it all? but everything was impeccably planned and we checked into banyan tree ungasan without a hitch...


check out our bathroom!! so stunning..


such a sneaky man, this one...

we spent the rest of the weekend chilling and having the time of our lives spoilt silly by the beautiful beach, endless dips in the pool and delicious food (i have a strange obsession with mee goreng. so i was in heaven!).ok... there was one awkward birthday song at breakfast which completely caught both of us by surprise but we were so deliriously happy it didn't matter!


and just like that, i turned 31.

fingers crossed that this fabulous surprise kick starts an even more blessed year to come!! im not greedy and i wont ask for anything more in life. is it too much to wish for things to stay exactly this way forever and ever?
