It’s finally here. The day is nearly over in fact. The day I have been dreading for as long as I can remember. My 27th Birthday. I talked about it here about 6 months ago.
I’m not usually one to get hung up on birthdays and getting older. I see getting older as a blessing not a curse. It’s not getting older that scares me and keeps me awake at night. My mum never made it past 27 and it’s been playing crazies with my mind for a while, and I thought today would be terrible, but in the end the lead up and anxiety was far worse than the day itself.
Today was very me. It had great food – pancakes for breakfast, vegemite sandwiches for lunch, chocolate mousse birthday cake, homemade burgers and cheezels. It had great company – my Dad and a surprise visit from my aunt and uncle. It had birthday messages from friends and family and great weather. And it had time to breathe and relax with no rush to be anywhere. A lovely way to spend my last birthday (for the foreseeable future) in Australia.
But now it begins. I like to start my new year on my birthday. I’m not much of a NYE reveller, so I start my new beginnings today. I reached the amount of savings I need for my trip, in fact I passed it, late Friday. So I start this year with the money I need to make this trip and 2013 an amazing adventure. The kind that my 27th year needs.
I’m feeling excited for it. And ready. Not packed ready – I’m no where near that. But I can book the last of the things and buy the last of what I need to get. The next few weeks will be a blur of packing things and getting nostalgic; of laughter, fun and preparing for Alt.
I hope to be here more writing, but we will see. There will definitely be more to read once the trip gets started and the inspiration comes to visit.
I’ve been looking for a name for this trip and I finally found it today: The 27 Adventure. It sums it up perfectly and a grand adventure it’s sure to be.
But for now I say goodnight and goodbye to another birthday and feel blessed that I get to make my dreams happen and that there are great people in this world that I’m so lucky to call my friends.

This blog turned two today.
Two years ago, it was a Sunday and I was feeling inspired. The beginning of Spring does that for me. I found a basic template and wrote a few posts and launched on the Monday.
Things have been rocky. I haven’t kept up with it as much as I would have liked. I’ve loved it and I’ve loathed it. But it has grown so much with me.
I am thankful that because of it I am able to share my thoughts with the world in a way I could never do face to face. I love that it is here waiting and that it’s coming with me on my next adventure.
Thank you to each of you who take the time to read it, and to those who have read it from the beginning. It’s been an amazing journey and I hope it is in the future.
So happy birthday little blog, let’s make year number 3 awesome!

Yep. That’s me. 25 today.
I had big plans of writing the 25 things I wanted to accomplish at 25, but I just couldn’t think of that many.
I had a good day with a lovely lunch and great company. We went to Grill’d in Degraves St and sat in the sunshine! We did some window shopping and found my dream gift (unfortunately it was out of the budget range). And decided to look again in the post Christmas sales for something else I might like.
I had dinner with some of my family and had my Dad’s famous chocolate mousse cake for desert.
All in all it was a good day.
I even came up with an idea for the blog in the new year, but for now it’s a secret so shhh!
I hope my 25th year can be the most fantastic one yet. But for now it’s time to focus on Christmas…
