I turned 25 on Wednesday.

Birthdays always make me think of the year that's been and the year to come. I feel like 24 was a year of smiles, tears, laughter, stress, growth and learning and honestly, I think 25 will be the same.

Thank you to my lovely Laura for this cake. Also BIG thanks to Louise, Gina and Mum! So Much chocolatey goodness this year!

As my birthday week (yes, in our house we claim a week) comes to an end I feel incredibly grateful. Birthdays are always such a lovely reminder of the love that surrounds you.

It was the year of lovely cards - this is just one of many that really touched my heart.

 I hope that 25 will bring lots of laughter, love and adventures. There's a lot I wish to accomplish this year from being healthier, to exploring the world of photography, and of course I think it's time I get behind the wheel.

In crafting news, I have been pretty fixated on chopping up my scraps into squares for a little plane stitching as Jen and I are off on a buying trip to source fabric (happy birthday to me)!

But before we take off I need to celebrate with friends....

Enjoy your weekend!

We share the same birthday, BUT if you turned your age around and add 2, that is what I celebrated this year. This time last year I celebrated my birthday with girlfriends at the Hard Rock cafe in Philadelphia, our last night in the USA (we had been to the Paducah Quilt show)before we flew back home to Melb. Hope you had a lovely birthday, with lots of laughter & fun involved, also enjoy your trip to the USA.
