February 9th

                            Do not count the candles but notice the light they give.
                                                        Do not count the years; look at the life you live.

Everyone who knows me knows I'm a sucker for birthdays. I'm that one person who will wait till its 12:00 on the dot just to scream  Happy birthday so imagine how much more anxious I am when it's my turn! :D

To some its just another day, to me, its another chance to do it even better. A chance to make right of the wrongs, to smile cause of how far I've come, to be grateful for the memories of the yester years but wise enough to leave them there (In the past), to develop plans, get closer to my dreams but most importantly to its a chance for me to LIVE not exist. I could go on but I cannot be thankful enough for simply the gift of life! 20+ years no be beans!

Seeing as my birthday fell on a Monday, had dinner the weekend before with my lovely primes who could make it. Each of which hold a unique story and spot in my life and heart (see summary below pics). Also, my grande photo shoot a norm for every year..I'm going to run out of space for pictures lol! One can never have too many.

It's a heck of a good thing having friends/sisters all over the globe. At 12, Paris time, my sister from another mother, Marie-Louise (and yes she's a Marie too) sent me the 'beautifulest' ( I know its not a word,,I still used it tho) text ever teared up a lil! She has literally helped me find solutions to every crisis in my life. fast forward to 12:00 South african time when the one who keeps me sane in this world Koryn (If you read my blog you know this name lol) called me and sang!!!!! I love y'all so so much! And of course 12 my time my phone crashed literally hahahaha!
