Sarah's special day

My friend Sarah is having her birthday today.  I don't think she wants me to reveal her age but this is a milestone birthday for her.  I can tell you however, that she is younger than me - isn't everyone!!  Sarah has the best of both worlds.  She works and lives on Waiheke Island - for non-New Zealanders this is located about 40 minutes by ferry from Auckland city.  Waiheke was originally a holiday destination as it has lovely beaches and drop-dead gorgeous views of the Hauraki Gulf with Auckland in the distance.  It has now evolved into an up-market (well out of my price range) place with multi-million dollar homes, boutique vineyards, restaurants, and unique art and craft shops.  Sarah was lucky enough to have bought there before the property values went sky-high.  She works as a real estate agent on the island and seems to have a great social life.

Happy Birthday Sarah  ...  with many more to come.

IMG_0473This is the birthday card I sent her.  Think I could have perhaps used stronger colours as I feel it is a bit pale.  Even though I did get an invitation to her party, unfortunately the difficulty in getting there (and home again late at night) has meant that I am going to miss out.
