My sweet boyfriend turned 24 today! I bought his birthday present weeks ago at the Gap inNagoya, and it was really hard waiting for this day to give it to him. But at midnight it was finally officially his birthday and he unwrapped his beautiful new red and grey scarf and loved it! He wore it the whole day today, and hopefully every cold day that this winter throws at us here.
Late in the afternoon we went to Kurayoshi, a teppanyaki restaurant, for a big and delicious birthday dinner with the whole Kotera-clan, and after that we had dessert in the big karaoke room and sung as loud as we could.
