What does it mean to celebrate a birthday?

Celebrating numbers. Those numbers correspond to life lived. To experiences had. To thoughts thought, to friends made, to dreams created. I chose to celebrate all that this year in all its entirety. It was a unique experience because I was also celebrating my 30th and in the heart of Greece, Athens.
With the 3-day birthday celebration, I wanted my friends who had travelled from all around to get the most of Greece but also to connect with each other. We started with a housewarming party on Friday while early morning on Saturday we were off to Angistri  island for the day! Yes, they complained about waking up early, but they forgave me a few short hours later. They saw the view, they swam in those crystal waters, their skin was a little darker. Of course, put Greeks in a room with anyone, they’ll have them dancing in a second, which is what happened. Of course it didn’t stop there. How could it with the Akropolis right next to us and a black-tie party?
Seeing my friends, old and new, my family all dancing and laughing together was so special to me – a celebration of everything this year, and every year,  is what life should be about – and that it was. A celebration of all. I cannot find enough words to thank you for your unconditional love and kindness! You are my rock! To another 30!
Thank you!

    What a great idea, to celebrate life as it is. Warmest congratulations! Indeed we all should celebrate each day that we were born, had dreams and aim at more experiences with our life. Instead, we are consumed by too much work, lack of fun, too many obstacles and so on…
    Love, Tamara V.
