On Thursday, Beyoncé just gave us a small unveiling of her birthday celebration in Sardinia, Italy with her family.

The Carters enjoyed a lavish holiday filled with lush views, champagne and good food on the singer’s birthday which falls on September 4.

She shared the majority of the photos on her website and posted a few select pics on her Instagram account to her millions of followers.

Her fans were happy to be blessed with a caption as the singer usually posts her photos with no words underneath. In true poetic fashion, she summed up her monumental year, while also sharing gratitude for what the future brings.

“At 36, I became a new mother of 3. I breastfed twins. I renewed my vows with my husband of ten years. I came back home to the stage to do Coachella, after pregnancy. Then my husband and I released our album together, Everything Is Love. And we’ve been touring with our family around the world, and loving it. This year has been monumental for me. I thank God for everyone in my life. Thank you for all the positivity and for the beautiful birthday wishes. I’m looking forward to continuing to learn from my past, living in the present, and surrendering to the future. I love you, Hive.”
