I am 27 years old and i am scared….
Today i am celebrating my 27th birthday. I am scared because i still want so much before my 30th birthday. Time wait for no one and that is something i seem to have realised a couple of days ago. I have a long list of goals i still want to accomplish including being a successful business woman. I wish i can sit down with someone older than me, over a cup of coffee and discuss how bieng 27 years old really feels like. Today it’s my first day and already the enxiety of realising i only have 3 years left till i hit the big 30 is too much to take. I am a mom, working full time and studying and honestly none of the things i mentioned constitute as an excuse to not achieving my goals.
I had a great time in the company of my two sisters. I never had a birthday party growing up due to financial reasons. When i started working, i started a tradition of taking my self out to a restaurant on my birthday. I always choose luxurious fine dining restaurants out of my everyday reach. I am thankful to be able spend my birthday in the heart of Franshoek, Western Cape. The last time i had Chef Reubens dishes was in December 2015 celebrating my 25th birthday at the prestigious One & Only hotel in Cape Town.
This morning after many reservation attempts loloking for a table for 3, i remembered Reuben’s restaurant and bar situated in Franshoek and to my luck i managed to get lunch table for 2pm. The scemic drive to Franshoek is a cherry on top. We struggled bit to find a closeby parking. I thought we’ll park somewhere closeby on the restaurant premises. I wouldn’t fault the overall impression of the restaurant based on the limited parking space.
The food went beyond my expectations. The atmosphere and the service from the staff complements the restaurant deco. I felt powerful and important in those few hours i spent there. I had the best birthday to remember.
Enjoy more rendom pictures i took today.
…and oh free spring or sparkling water too, lets be real who wants to pay for water? 🤣
