So my birthday is in 2 days.

And since we’re flying to Thailand on my actual birthday, we decided to celebrate a little early.

We skipped the cake. And celebrated with a cheese board instead.

Cakes are overrated anyway.

This way, I can have 6 different kinds of cheeses in one sitting.

And don’t forget – there’s so much fruit here. Persimmons, pomegranate, clementine and the cutest baby apples ever.

So the way I see it, it’s one cheese per fruit to balance out the calories.

Which may actually be less than cake calories.

So we all win, guys.
