Happy, Happy Birthday!!!

Yesterday was my birthday! I turned 46. Scared me a bit when I thought about turning 46, I am now closer to 50! But, they say you are only as old as you feel and with a 3-year-old running around in the throws of potty training, I don't have time to think about being old!

We had a fairly quiet day. We went out for dinner as a family and next week Jim and I are going to see "Riverdance".

But.......I have been having no problem with my New Year's resolution of being more joyful.
Why you may ask?????
Because in June, we will be seeing the above place in person.

Also this place.

We will also be standing on the steps of this magnificant building.

Yesterday..........excuse me while I happy dance around the room.......

Yesterday.........we booked our flights to Australia!!!!!

I haven't been back to Australia for 12 years. Haven't seen my family for 12 years. A lot has happened in 12 years. Both my Mum and Dad have passed away, as have many other family members and good friends. It will definately be different going back to Australia this time.

It is time to go back

Enjoy the following

Happy Belated Birthday Sally Ann!

How exciting that you get to go back home after 12 long years! Wow! I think the longest I've gone without going back home is 2 years...however, Utah has always been closer than Australia:) Until now that is...LOL

Yeah! What a great trip. I am jealous because I have not been there yet. Make sure you take lots of pictures and share them on your blog. I enjoyed your log from Canada.

Happy Birthday (a little late)!!

I'm very excited for you about your trip to Australia! And jealous.

But, I'm glad you're going to get to see your family and such. 12 years is a looong time.

Well Happy Belated Birthday! 46 years and running (after a 3 year old!) :)

I'm sure your very excited to go back home and see your family. I'm excited for you.

I was just going back through some of my comments and saw yours on my Wendesday's Walk Down Memory Lane post and realized I hadn't seen you on Wednesday yet (I don't think). Come and visit sometime!

Have a beautiful week.
Lynnette :)
