quarter of a century...

Today is my birthday (I'm turning 25) and everything is just perfect...I mean...Look at the weather (for non-melburnians: It's 31 degrees outside). Just the perfect weather to go for a stroll along the beach, have a drink at one of the great Williamstown cafes and just absorb summer :) Back in Holland it's autumn now, which means that for 22 years I've had cold, rainy weather on my birthday. Having sunny, hot weather means a lot to me, it's just so exciting to suddenly have your birthday in another season. I have to add that I do miss my family on days like this. Mum called me early this morning and it's very strange not to be able to have cake with the family. I guess we'll have to save the cake until April, when me & Marcel are going to Holland.

Here's a pic of some presents my friends gave me on Friday. I also received a lot of clothes from H&M, that my mum sent to me, a gorgeous little dress from another friend and a book about fabric from Marcel's parents.

Sorry, I can't seem to upload pics at the moment, blogger has decided not to be nice to me on my birthday.

Ow, another thing I absolutely love about this day...my boyfriend is making me fresh juice :) gotta love that.

Happy birthday chickabee! And yes what aaawesome weather for it!

Your new print is cute also! Is this the one that can be turned into a 2 colour if need be? That'd be cool.

Happy birthday!

This seemed like a good time to de-lurk. I love your blog, but I've been too shy to comment before. I hope you enjoy the warmth and fresh juice and all other wonderful things coming your way today.

My birthday is in April, so I can relate to your weather happiness. When I turned seven, we had a skiing competition :D Some good things have come out of global warming and nowadays it usually doesn't snow in April.

Even though you don't know me, I send you a Finnish hug!
