    Haha so witty and fabulously written! I was visualising everything from the birds dropping dead on ur porch next to ur garden chairs and of cpurse that scream!! But can I say something, I kno it’s jus a number but you wouldn’t have celebrated ur 24th the way u did ur 34, had ur Tax man left u and gone. You would have cried all day, sitting in ur bed, filling up ur journal pages- we change we evolve we transform and I guess almost becoming perfect as we are growing older ????❤️????

      Thanks Hema! I totally believe that if text can make your imagination run wild then it’s an indication of good writing ! I also agree that I am stronger and much more protective about my happiness now than I was in my twenties. I don’t lock my happiness in others now. Although my concept of love is still the same, if it’s not crazy, dramatic, passionate enough then it’s not worth my while. We evolve from the lessons we learn and as you can see even at thirty four they are finding me one way or the other ☺️♥️ !!

      We will always be united in our love and fear of Dalhousie (mostly love ??) Thankyou for the beautiful encouraging feedback!

  3. First of all Happy Birthday once again. Since the day you wrote on Instagram that you will be dropping a blog post, I have been waiting for this post.
    I was imagining what you had written like literally imagining. Your words come alive and make me smile every time I read your posts. You write with your heart and you have a beautiful way of expressing yourself. Funny thing is – how drama is always around you but the mature thing is you gave that drama such a positive twist. I want to just keep writing how I enjoyed the post but for now, I will scroll up and read again. Much love xx
