One of the hardest things about my year abroad is missing out on the big and important things that happen to my loved ones. Today is my boyfriend David’s birthday, and even though it isn’t a milestone year, it still feels awful to miss out on yet another celebration. I know that he would like nothing more than for me to come home and spend the day with him, but since that isn’t possible, I thought I would carve out a small part of this blog to wish him the happiest of birthdays.

D–  For your kindness, your patience, your generosity, your humour, your acceptance, your heart, and your love: thank you. Happy Birthday my love, C xo
