There’s always that moment when I wake up on each birthday, that feeling of expectation, hope and discomfort all in one. Each year I place the 17th of May on a pedestal in hopes for the very best. Each year is exceptional. The warmth and love that pours in keeps me tingling inside that inevitably paints a smile on my face. To my dearest family and friends, you shook my world. This silence brought by contented tears is seldom and what a blessing it is to know each and every one of you. Many thanks for all the birthday wishes and a special warm thank you to my family for making this year unforgettable. Love and kisses, S.
