Free Tickets

Today I’m grateful to my work colleague, Bianca, who turned an average Wednesday night into something far more exciting. She won free tickets on the radio to attend a show, and since she was unable to attend she passed them onto me!

So, instead of my usual Wednesday night at home I headed out to the cinema with a friend for a cocktail party and special viewing of the season finale of the Australian tv show ‘Offspring’. It was even complete with a special pre-recorded message from Patrick for us! *swoon*

Thank you for a wonderful night Bianca!!

Thankyou Cards

Today I am grateful for my wonderfully creative friend Paige who has made me the most gorgeous 1920s themed thank you cards for my 40th birthday guests.

I was so impressed with her invitations; she was able to create exactly the vision I had in my head, and she made it all so easy for me. Funnily enough I had the same experience with the thank you cards too! I can’t recommend her highly enough, and my guests LOVED my invites.

She really is a creative genius when it comes to custom cards and invitations, wedding stationary, and inspirational manifestos.

Free Speech

Today I am grateful for freedom of speech. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be a woman in a progressive society, where I am able speak my mind and put forth my opinions without any fear of repercussion.

Tomorrow I am going to exercise my rights and march in a rally in support of marriage equality. It’s a cause very close to my heart, and I am very grateful for the opportunity to stand up and be counted.

I am especially grateful and proud that I’m able to attend with my girlfriend; something I could never have done had I been born a century earlier. I thank all the men and women that came before me that fought for our rights.

I think I’ll wear this t-shirt tomorrow that I bought in Mykonos last year…. 😀
