It’s My Birthday!!

Birthday“There was a star danced, and under that was I born.”  -William Shakespeare

It’s my birthday (just to reiterate in case the post title was in any way ambiguous!) I have now reached the ripe oldish age of 27!

All things going well boyfriend and I should be well into out America adventure and after a few days in New York we should have reached San Francisco by now.  In the past few years I have traveled far and wide starting with my 25th birthday in Barcelona (rain), then Venice (food poisoning), Gdansk in Poland (cold), Belfast (beautiful), and Dubrovnik in Croatia (amazing!!!).  And now I’m spending my 27th birthday in America!

Apparently I share my birthday with Cobie Smulders, Doris Day, King Henry IV, and Eddie Murphy, which is significant of nothing but might make for an interesting dinner party one day. And when I was born; Fine Things by Danielle Steel was on the New York Times Best Seller List, Madonna was having a hit with La Isla Bonita, and Police Academy Four: Citizens on Patrol was released.  And tbh, not much has changed…

“To me, fair friend, you never can be old, For as you were when first your eye I eye’d, Such seems your beauty still.”                                      – William Shakespeare
