Hello my beautiful readers,
When I said Best Birthday Ever I wasn’t Kidding. Hey y’all so I turned 24 this past week. Been gone quite a long time, but this time it was for a better excuse, stick with me and you all will get to know my “better excuse” in no time. Am an old soul, and I cherish the simple things in life and so I was very excited to celebrated my 24th birthday on Wednesday last week (14th December) and as the blog post says it was hands down!! the Best Birthday Ever
I have always kept thoughts and efforts into my birthday, what can I say, I love any reason to celebrate life. And birthdays seems like one of those amazing reasons to do just that and a little more. I am usually surrounded by friends on my birthday but this time round that was never the case, and it couldn’t have had a better outcome.
I was surprised into a birthday dinner. Words don’t seem to describe it. I had a total movie experience, am not trying to sell you on an imaginary idea, trying to sound cliché. But am still stuck looking for the right words to explain how I had the Best Birthday Ever & how magical my day was. Am tearing just thinking about it.
On the eve of my birthday, some few hours to be exact, I was to go out for movies, but in my worst luck, the cinemas was closed that night and ended up having drinks and it was a better turn of events, laughter to carry me a lifetime, am still cracking as I write this. Fast forwarding to 10 mins before the Best Birthday Ever. Have you ever seen a person who is actually as excited about your birthday as you are. Well I have and let me tell you it felt so outstandingly awesome, and I couldn’t change anything about that precise moment if I were ever given a chance.
The rest of my day was pretty well, had lots of wishes, texts and calls from my family and friends and that did warm my heart. I can’t thank you all enough for trying to make my day as fabulous as possible. I low-key skipped work, and well that’s the fun in working on a family business. Around 1-ish I received one of those cute texts, “wear something nice, elegant and sophisticated, I’ll pick you at 6.30 PM”
That text screamed DRESS!! and I was already too deep into play-suits. Funny story, I had ordered a playsuit online for my birthday, and that was like a disaster of a lifetime. One word to describe it was UGLY. I don’t know how but it felt all forms of wrong when I received it. I wish I could explain more so, again I had to look for another birthday outfit and just when I thought I was gonna wear sweat pants lol, I got this amazing white jumpsuit.
Having receiving the text that screamed dress well you know I was in a pickle. And it being 1-ish of course I had to channel my inner designer & make it work some how. I love dressing up don’t get me wrong, but this time, I low-key felt like the bar was set too high. I tried to get ready in time and I gotta say the reaction to my dress was worth the marathon and extra effort.
The Best Birthday Ever movie experience. In addition to having the best night. The whole thing was a reservation. A pre-planned Celebration. Like someone took time out of their busy schedule to put a smile in my face. I mean, Come on, How could I be this lucky? Still in shock. It was a rooftop dinner overlooking the city and my reaction can never ever fit in words… Aaaaaaah
The beautiful getaway place was called Onsea House and I think this answers the many crazy questions I kept receiving, is this place even in Arusha? well I was having the same question as well and yes it is in Arusha surprisingly. Do enjoy the pictures below and get a glimpse of my Best Birthday Ever
Onsea House & Cottage has been a synonym for charming comfort in a picturesque setting, which is unique in Arusha. With more personal approach than in a hotel and more privacy than a lodge resort.. Be sure to check them out if you want an experience of a lifetime, trust me you will thank me later.
Best Birthday Ever
I had a 7 coarse meal, yes I had a lot of workout sessions planned after that so don’t worry. But every part of the meal was cooked to perfection. I think I may have discovered an extra taste bud or two in my mouth. The roof-top, candle light dinner overlooking the beautiful city was more than I could ever bargained for. I was living a dream for the night. In all honesty I don’t know how I got so lucky or what I did to deserve this. (emotional moment right here) Best Birthday Ever.
To conclude it all I had received presents of a lifetime. You know how you have always wished for something and it lands on your dinning table. Well that was me on my birthday. I don’t know you guys, hands down to the Best Birthday Ever is all I can sum it into. There is more to this than the 939 words I tried to capture. Amma let you all in a little glimpse of my night in the hidden paradise. Sending Virtual Hugs and all my Love P.
