Caro's notes. Birthday special 2004
Today (April 25th) is my birthday... I am 39. What do

So here I am, 39. Living in a cute, but rather small, magic place in the middle of a sunflower field in southern France. Looking to buy a house and looking forward to a somewhat different life to lead. Sometimes I think of what most of my female friends my age are doing at the moment, not being able to make too many crazy moves while raising their kids; an all consuming period of their lifes.

In the meantime I feel happy in our 35 square meters living/bed/dining room, all in. It is not warm in the little house, we are amidst our moving boxes filled with necessities, but the environment is so beautiful, I can't complain.
This house and its grounds has now become my point of reference. I will
only go for something like this, or
Here's to you and here's to me... until such time, see ya
