Dear friend of La Bagatelle,

Birthdays don’t matter to me except for that one day of the year where it actually is my birthday. That day I care. The hypocracy is of course alarming, but it is what it is. I had my birthday this week and as La Bagatelle is moving our studio next week, there was no time for big celebrations but it suited me just fine. I have thrown so many parties over the years that a small dinner party almost seemed more special. Actually I have noticed that the more people I invite, the fewer people I end up talking to and having real conversations with. Big dinners are grand, beautiful and fun. But the smaller and more intimate parties are what I am aiming at as it goes from Summer to Autumn. 

Lots of love,
Malene Malling
