Happy 40th Birthday, G!!!

Happy 40th Birthday, G!!!

Aujourd’hui, Garance a 40 ans ! Joyeux anniversaire, G !!

A l’heure qu’il est, au Studio, on est peut-être en train de déboucher le champagne (en fait, c’est pas peut-être, c’est sûr !) en ton honneur ! Et même si notre VRAI cadeau (c’est une grosse surprise, tu verras) n’arrivera que plus tard, on voulait, comme un petit clin d’œil à la lettre que tu as écrite, écrire nous aussi une lettre à Garance, celle qui a 40 ans.

Chère G,

De toutes les nanas de 40 ans qu’on connaît, t’es presque la plus cool. Non, on rigole, t’es vraiment la plus cool, mais on veut pas que tu prennes la grosse tête tout à coup, maintenant que tu as 40 ans. Il y a des tonnes de trucs pour lesquels les gens t’aiment – tu as fait tellement de choses en quatre décennies – mais nous, pour l’occasion, on tenait à te dire pourquoi on te trouve géniale :

– Tu adores raconter n’importe quoi et rigoler –super fort –, n’importe où et n’importe quand.
– Personne ne porte aussi bien les cheveux courts que toi.
– Tes chorégraphies sont inégalables.
– Espace personnel est une notion que tu ne connais pas, ce qui veut dire qu’on a la chance de bosser juste à côté de toi tous les jours.
– A part Melissa, c’est toi qui fais les meilleures reprises de Hozier.
– Tu as une passion pour le chocolat, mais tu es toujours prête à partager.
– Tu es adorable et attentionnée, tu veux toujours qu’on se sente bien.
– On ne connaît pas beaucoup de gens qui peuvent dire en toute sincérité que leur boss est leur amie.

Alors pour tout ça, merci. Joyeux anniversaire et profite bien de tes 40 ans. N’oublie pas : « 40 is the new 20 ! »

On t’aime très fort,
Emily, Erik, Brie, Elle et Neada

  • Rock on, Garance! Your staff is right, 40 is the new 20. Life is about to get very good!!!! Happy Birthday!

  • Happy Birthday Garance! And after reading some old journals, I can say with confidence, that 40 is SO much better than 20.

  • Je ne sais pas pourquoi mais je sens que tu attendais ça, tes 40 ans, pour être heureuse pleinement (bah si je sais pourquoi ! Tu es si épanouie et belle sur cette photo) – Joyeux anniversaire !!!!! (et dire que tu avais genre 31 ans lorsque j’ai commencé à te suivre). Tchin tchin
