My mother didn't just like to celebrate your birthday for a day but the whole month was dedicated to you. Now that I am older and not at home it is a lot to ask and I have also been known to my friends as a birthdayzilla. I did beat the system this year though, my birthday was 36 hours. My Aussie bday 1/2 day ahead and then my American bday....pretty awesome.
Either I am really special or the world is filled with amazing people. My family here surprised me with a dinner out, bottle of champagne, cake, candles and singing. As this was all happening I kept thinking about the moment I booked my flight not having a clue about what was to come and knowing there is no way to have planned or predicted this all. So that was awesome and now I am 27 which I kind of like the sound of. I have worked hard for these numbers, they didn't come easily. There was a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get this far. I may not be the cool aunt I thought I was going to be but at least I am not crazy aunt Kate either.
Life is pretty good in Aussieland. It is the weekend and I have 5 horses to ride. The ONLY thing I didn't get for my bday that I wanted was a horse.....maybe next year. HINT HINT!
