There were far too many people to seat..
Everybody brought yummy foods and assorted beverages. My favorite were the vodka jello shots, I was finally able to enjoy, not having to drive home after the party.
My friend Tamar even made a cake featuring my new tattoo!
I also received many wonderful gifts - books, and jewelry, and accessories and a spa visit!
Finally, my friends took this very short film as a contribution to Zia Kitaro's exciting new project Bits of My Life in Israel. The idea behind this project is to share moments of life in Israel, unedited but refined to 30-90 second films that will show the world who lives here and illustrate that there is more to Israel than politics and conflicts. Though what you see in this specific film is a conflict between myself and a snail who lives on my roof garden.
I plan to film several bits of my life during the next weeks, and will be sharing them with you here.
So that was my birthday party. I am blessed to have so many wonderful friends I love to have come celebrate with me. This is one year celebrating was mandatory!
