First, I want to thank you ALL for the kind birthday wishes! Y’all are so thoughtful, and your words meant a lot to me.
I am so grateful to have spent my birthday abroad and with some of my family (ie., Joey and Mom). I had a wonderful celebration! Enjoyed great food, great company, and great champagne! Champagne is ALWAYS my drink of choice, whether it’s my birthday or not. I know, I know…. champagne is not meant for every day consumption. BUT, living abroad and living with less has taught me to celebrate EVERY day and EVERY occasion.
As a gal that lived in Atlanta her entire life, moving to the other side of the world has been a HUGE adventure! The first time I lived here I didn’t know a soul. This time, I get to share my travels and memories with my two best friends: Joey and Mom.
Living on the other side of the world has opened my eyes to so many new things. Things you can’t imagine unless you’re here to witness it yourself. I’ve realized how insignificant my life in Atlanta was compared to the rest of the world. There are so many people. So many different types of people; bigger, smaller, stronger, weaker…
At the end of the day, we are all contributing to life in this world, and not just in Atlanta. It has been a humbling year and I’m looking forward to continuing my journey abroad.
