because it's still yesterday in Texas

{last year}
This post isn't late. Nope, this post is right on time. Texas time. And since Miss Aidan is a Texan (an East Texan if one wants to be persnickety about it) then this is the exact right time.

It's Aidan's birthday. 

Oh, I'm sorry, could you not hear me?

It's Aidan's birthday. 

And unlike last year when we celebrated it in Avignon with Bec and Sarah B, and being the cheeky monkeys that we are, put numbered candles on Aidan's birthday cake and the poor girl turned fifty shades of pink and just about died, this year I decided to keep it a bit more low key with a birthday bumps post and not a single flaming number in sight.

So here goes.

Happy Birthday Aidan!

You're my partner in crime on this French journey, the Thelma to my Louise (or am I Thelma?) and life here wouldn't be nearly as much fun without you. So cheers to you darling girl and cheers to being another year wiser.

I want all of you to be friends with Aidan too. She's witty as all get out, spins fantastic tales of family life here in the South of France, is an amazing cook (sometimes she even shares some of her recipes on her blog... cocktail recipes too), makes a mean Mojito, and is really, really nice to boot.

See, don't you want to be friends with her? You can be if you pop over to Aidan's blog and wish her a happy birthday. Tell her I sent you.

Just please don't bring any flaming numbers with you.
