Towards the end of August, I celebrated my birthday for the second time. As written in previous posts, I adore birthdays - they are like small, magical vacations....
That Saturday, we spent the morning, having a lovely breakfast and then went to the thermal baths – Les Bains de Lavey, before driving back to our secluded location in Heidi’s Country.
In the evening it was time to celebrate my birthday. I decided to have a barbecue. I had made a marvellous Nordic Potato Salad and Mint Lamb (recipes from a cookbook). The lamb was cooked to perfection by Sweetheart - juicy and tender with amazing flavours…
For birthday cake, I picked the regional speciality Galette Valaisanne from our local bakery. This is a typically Valaisan tart, made of shortbread pastry, extremely rich and tasty, stuffed with apricot or raspberry jam.
I wore a maxi floral pattern dress, sandals and simple jewellery, like this diamond cross with white gold chain.
It was a great night, a relaxing evening. All in all, I just enjoyed being surrounded by everything I cherish the most.
I wish you all a lovely week.
