New photos by me.
I got 3 books on my birthday: a Germany photobook from Hải Lý (photos of our trip to Frankfurt, Heidelberg, Würzburg and Rothenburg), Kendra Bean's Vivien Leigh: An Intimate Portrait from Thanh Thanh and ****: or, The Anatomy of Melancholy by Matthew Selwyn from the author himself (OK he didn't know about my birthday, but the book arrived just the day before so why not include it :p). Also got a pair of high heels from my mom, because I'd been invited to a wedding.
This year I celebrated my birthday completely off facebook (my account's still deactivated), and spent hours with Sediqa at the botanical garden. It was lovely.
