Dear Shaded Viewers,

We celebrated Silvia's 22nd birthday with a lunch at YEN, famous for their soba noodles. After lunch Valentin invited us all to his home for birthday cake.

The white finches and Silvia seemed a perfect match and , I don't know about you, but when was the last time someone made the effort to bake you a birthday cake? We were all very happy to share in the celebration not to mention, gold stars for the perfect cake.
