Kim Kardashian Writes Openly About Kanye’s Birthday Surprise

32-year-old reality star Kim Kardashian loves taking photos of herself–so much so that this week, she snapped this self-portrait, with her rocking a sports bra and sweat pants. A few days ago, she and her boyfriend Kanye West celebrated her birthday with a trip to Venice.

She took to her web site, to give a personal account of their weekend together, writing:

I thought I was going away to work, but it was really a birthday trip! What an amazing surprise!! We started in Rome, saw the Colosseum, went to the Vatican and saw the Sistine Chaple. So breathtaking! Then we went to Florence and stayed in this incredible castle, saw Michelangelo’s David, and shopped around town. We saw all the sights, visited some beautiful churches and all the famous monuments. The last stop on the trip was Venice, where I spent my birthday. What a romantic weekend! One I’ll never forget. Xo
