I completely forgot to talk about my aahumm… 30… something birthday on July 23rd. We, Network Winds, were hot into deep practicing that week, and this picture above was actually taken at Nadina’s house on the day of my birthday.
This was my first birthday EVER without my mom ! it was very sad for me, but I felt ok about it.. I do really miss her though!... she would always be the first one to call me first thing in the morning to wish me a Happy Birthday. Last summer she was still alive and we had a nice party at her place on Charles Street.
This year I spent the day surrounded by great friends, and that was a great support !!
Later that eveing a big party, BBQ at my place with about 20 friends and family !
