February.





February is here, and that means I'm a year older. Yes February 1, my birthday. Aquarian.

So yesterday in the late afternoon, I decided not to work much and took myself to a movie in Ginza. 500 Days of Summer, it kept me smiling all the way through, was good :) Then I got some lovely macarons from Laduree and hurried home as the rain was said to turn into snow later, and it did! First snow this winter in Tokyo. So pretty, as long as staying inside a warm home.

The last photo -my breakfast today, some macarons from yesterday, chocolates and kompeito which I had been given. I know it's too much sugar, but outside all the trees and people's roofs are looking as if covered with sugar so why not me, I guess I can be excused just for today ;)

The top photo is a birthday card I received from this shop, a "Happy Birthday To You" message printed in a large classic Japanese font. How perfect! I thought. Check out the lemon coincidence here in this post.
 
Oh, and also February brought her to Tokyo!!
