Celebrating 37 in the city.

Yip, it is...I turned a whole 37 on Saturday. I can hardly believe it...I am reaching years that I never ever even thought about...crazy.

This is gonna be a long one folks..hundreds of pics.

We started off the celebrations...because well, it might be 37, but we are celebrating anyway...on Friday night, with dinner for two, at our new favourite restaurant, OYO.
Saturday morning began, with a sweet surprise...
And, then there was only one place I wanted to spend my Saturday birthday...in the city that I love. So we decided to make it a real Jozi day...and spend the whole day going around the city sightseeing.

First stop, the new Neighbourgoods Market. This is the second new inner city market that has opened....and it did not dissapoint at all. I absolutely loved it!
The market was mainly full of the most delicious food stuff...and by the time we left it was buzzing with people.

When then decided to take a walk around...and explore some of the side streets...

We had so much fun...and as usual, I love seeing the inner city slowly been restored to her former glory...

We then took a drive out to the leafy green suburb of Parktown.Were we shopped and had lunch. Our first and most important stop was at the In Good Company store. I have been oggling their online shop for years now, and I finally got to pop in at the store...trust me it is amazing. I could have spent hours in there...
And then finally...we met up with more friends and the family for a quiet dinner...
The perfect ending to a perfect day...



PS. Oh.My.Gosh...I am 37!
