Pre Birthday Gratitude

Feeling all warm inside as I approach my 23rd birthday. First off, today is my mama's birthday. We have tons of capricorns in the family (brother, mama, me, anmama) and three fall in the same week! Mama- I love you. You have raised us in such a beautiful way and we are able to shine because of your ridiculous amount of support. You let us fly even when you want us in the nest and that is a remarkable trait. I miss you everyday.

We discovered a new cafe that was right across from our Doctor. It's the quaintest little place that is decked out in Bo Kaap paintings. Go to Batavia and get the mint lemonade!

I reached out to some friends and family that I thought would enjoy the blog and my old friend and yoga instructor, Michelle, wrote to me that she and a girlfriend dos a collage after reading. That and more encouragement from people that I truly care about has meant the world. Starting a project can be scary but when you receive positive feedback it really gives you the push you need to keep it up. So thanks friends!

G keeps mentioning how it's someone's special day tomorrow and it's very cute. We're going to do a surfing lesson which I have been dreaming of since June. And we're gonna get our favorite toast with avo and lampeh  & a latte at Clarke's before! Basically I am so excited. My baby brother turned 21 on the 7th and I'm so glad him and dad have had a great time beaching and eating. Josh is the coolest and I miss him terribly. Keep killing the game Joshy!
