    The second photo down, we have photos of Yan (my wife) and myself on that crooked bridge from 2005. You were indeed in a great place for a birthday!

    Happy people do a lot of things. They spend time expressing gratitude, cultivating optimism, practising kindness, nurturing loving relationships, committing to meaningful goals, savouring life’s little pleasures, and so on and so forth.

    Congrats, Jocelyn.

    I like John’s shirt, it has that retro look to it.

    Beautiful birthday photos. You two look great. And I love the lotus pictures. It’s nice that John makes a big deal about your birthday. He’s celebrating the fact that you were born.

    Happy belated birthday! It sounds like you had a wonderful day. I love that you have your North face purse to complete your outfit… a hint of outdoorsy! It is totally my style as well! 🙂

    It’s really beautiful, Jocelyn! You two must have a wonderful time together. Hangzhou really just have that “special” charm to it, esp. with the Legend of the White Snake and all the romanticized names of all its attractions.
