The one where we gon’ party like its ma birthday

Oh yeah cos it IS my birthday (woot woot)

And by party I mean


HA, just kidding, I may in fact party a little bit but only after I go for an amazing birthday run and spend three hours talking to my sister and mum and dad and eat a lot of ice cream and give Bestie the biggest hug ever and reflect on being 25 😍 it is gonna be awesome.

(Side note: I said to my sister recently I was going to be half a century old… Awkward pause before she told me it is only a quarter of a century…maths is for realsies not my strong point).


Birthday chair

(My birthday chair when I celebrated with my amazing family in NZ a few weeks ago).

On my birthday I love to reflect on where I was the previous year and get all deep about it (HA).

Last year I had just moved to Sydney a week earlier not knowing a single person. On my birthday I went for a run in my new neighborhood and got chased by a weird guy who obviously had never run in his life and almost passed out chasing me 😳

Bestie took me out for drinks and an amazing beach picnic and gave me a beautiful present even though we had just met (she is just that kind of person) and I knew in my heart we were destined for bestie-hood.


My family called me but it definitely felt a little sad to be away from people I love so much.

This year I still miss my family beyond belief but I know I will talk to them and will see them soon and they will always be there for me even when I am in a different country.Β  Bestie and I have been through EVERYTHINGΒ together in the past year (including sharing a bed for six months, LOL) and she is beyond special to me, we also met our other adorable bestie Juliana and became the “wifey team” as our workmates call us, I adore my masters course and am over halfway through it (YAY) and I feel surrounded by people I love and so happy and lucky to have my life where it is right now.


(Love this photo cos it kinda looks like we have a halo which would be legit cos both those girls are angels)

Bring on 25, if it is half as amazing as 24 was then I am in for another awesome ride.


(Riding the ferris wheel yesterday to prepare).

Hope you all have a beautiful day and eat some ice cream and/or lollies for me!

What do you like to do on your birthday? I have the whole day off and feel very frivolous to not be cracking open my textbooks. I ALWAYS run on my birthday, I can’t even remember the last time I didn’t do that.

What did you do in your 25th year of life??

What awesome thing are you up to this weekend?

  7. Happy *belated* birthday to you!! Sounds like 25 will be an awesome year, just like 24 was. When I was 25 I was enjoying my first year of married life! Whoa, a long time ago. On my birthday I like to be pampered and enjoy birthday cake and ice cream. That’s about it, I’m pretty low maintenance! πŸ™‚
    Hope you are having a great birthday week celebration!!
