May 29th is Rupert Everett's birthday. Hence the photo above. My birthday also falls on the same day and, since it falls during a week break from work, we spend the whole week celebrating with food, fun, and travel. Click HERE to see photos from past birthdays.

What did I buy myself in London?

Nick bought me this wisteria plant for my birthday. This photo was taken a couple of years later, after it (and I) had matured. Wisteria is my favourite scent.
