Today is Adriana Lima’s birthday, and the Brazilian model and Victoria’s Secret Angel has plenty to celebrate. Not only is June 12 the day she was born, it’s also a special day in her home country—Dia dos Namorados. The holiday, which translates as Boyfriends’/Girlfriends’ Day, is basically a Brazilian version of Valentine’s Day. Lima shared a romantic Portuguese poem on Instagram today that encourages people to flirt with life and live in love:

✨Namore a vida ! Namore o dia ! Namore a sua paz ! Namore as suas escolhas ! Namore a sua casa ! Namore os sorrisos que te oferecem ! Namore os melhores olhares que você já recebeu ! Namore os seus filhos ! Namore os seus sonhos ! Namore a sua família ! Namore a sua consciência por aceitar cada momento e superá-lo ! Namore as artes ! Namore a natureza ! Namore o seu querer e o seu "bem querer" ! Namore o ato de AMAR ! Namore seu namorado e se não tiver um, namore o amor que existe dentro de você independentemente de quem possa estar ou não em sua vida !✨ TERESA RAMARAJARA 🙏 Olhe ao seu redor, busque a reciprocidade, amadureça os seus relacionamentos e escolhas, VIVA EM AMOR ! E, sem mais delongas, FELIZ DIA DOS NAMORADOS A TODOS!!!

Lima turned 36 today, and she has no problem with growing older. Last fall, she told People magazine, “I feel more beautiful than ever. You grow and you mature and you learn so much about yourself. You become wiser as a woman knowing what you like and what you don’t like. It’s sexy.”

😆😁😄😝😜 #tbt Greece 🇬🇷 SMILE 💖

Whatever she’s doing for her birthday, she’ll be with at least one person she loves and respects—herself. Last month, Lima revealed that she is married to herself and wears a ring as a symbol of her commitment to her own happiness. Happy birthday and feliz Dia dos Namorados, Adriana!
