I've been seeing a lot of Emile lately, and it's been good. Along with a small group of friends, we celebrated his 31st birthday party at Levende, followed by desserts at Delfina (where Caroline now cooks, on the weekends). I remember the days when we had to dig deep to find out when Emile's birthday was. We organized a little surprise party and cake at work, which evoked something between sincere thanks and open hostility from him -- or perhaps, a bit of both. :)
Happy Birthday, Emile!
