Autumn. The time when the leaves start falling on te ground. It rains and rains some more and…it’s also the time when I celebrate that I am officially getting older again!

I celebrated my birthday on Monday evening with my family, but I have to say, I really like my personal tradition… On the Friday after, I went for dinner and drinks with some family members and friends in a very vintage meets present restaurant.

Not the most exciting description, but I decided to give it a try. The first few minutes I had to get used to the fact that it was a Spanish serie and the serie started off slowly.
