Hi everyone, I just want to say THANK YOU for all the birthday messages over the week!
I had a really wonderful, simple, but meaningful day.
I woke up early on my birthday and was out the door at 5:30am to go for a 30km bike ride.
It was pitch black when I left. But I discovered that riding in the dark is just awesome! I have some badass night lights mounted on my bike, so it’s like riding in a big, black tunnel. I have so much focus and there’s nothing to distract me. It was so coooool!
And the glowing sky before the sun rose was out of this world:
I got back around 7:30am, had a hot shower and leisurely washed my hair (bliss!).
The kids (and husband) made me a fancy breakfast of poached eggs, bacon, herbs and hollandaise sauce. I opened presents and cute handmade cards. I sent the big kids to school. I ran a few errands with my little kid.
Then I met up with my parents for lunch. Picked up my kids after school, and we all had a walk in the park.
When we were in the park, my 2 big boys ran ahead, so my 3 year old and myself walked behind slowly, swishing in the fallen leaves, singing and dancing away like nobody was watching :)
Got home and made dinner, then hung out with my family. And haha I had to go to bed early because I was so tired from my morning cycle!
So yes, a lovely and simple day.
(I’ll be having a few other celebrations over the next few weeks!)
Also I want to say a special thank you to everyone who generously donated a birthday gift to my Fundraising Ride to Conquer Cancer too!!
Have an amazing week ahead! xxx
