What more could you ask for than to spend your 25th birthday celebrating with friends on a tropical island paradise of dreams, in a little place called Bora Bora?.....Well that is exactly how I spent my birthday on the 18th of this month, starting the day off right with a nutritious (yet delicious!) multi-grain French toast breakfast prepared by my amazing boyfriend, after which I opened all the cards that my family had sent with me while I was home visiting in June......Thank you all so much for the nice cards and I miss you lots!!  After resting a bit, Aaron and I went on our first hike/ in-land exploration of the island. The 2 hour hike was just what my body needed after being cooped up on the boat for so long and the views from the top were amazing, definitely proving why the lagoon of Bora Bora is said to be one of the most beautiful in the world (pictures to follow!) Later that evening came cocktails on the boat followed by dinner at the Bora Bora Yacht Club. The night was made even better as some of our boating friends and our new friend Lovina, whom we met on Tahaa, were there to celebrate with us as well. Dinner was served above shimmering white sand and coral illuminated by underwater lights complete with electric blue and red fish swimming around below the deck where we sat. Needless to say, dinner was fantastic, the rum punches were even better, and my birthday in Bora Bora turned out to be more beautiful than I had even imagined.    ~LH
