Through the pines the gusts are booming, o'er the brown fields blowing chill,
From the furrow of the ploughshare streams the fragrance of the loam,
And the hawk nests on the cliffside and the jackdaw in the hill,
And my heart is back in England 'mid the sights and sounds of Home. Rudyard Kipling
21st birthday time! Not as big of a deal in England, but still SO EXCITED!
My friend Rachael (fellow cox) and I are both 21 today, so it's quite the big deal!
I coxed this morning, then had a fantastic lunch with a bunch of my friends and tonight I'll be doing the telethon and then heading out for a night on the town! Our big birthday bash is next Tuesday, when most of the St. Anners will be back, which should be hysterical. Very stoked about it!
I love the feeling of getting birthday wishes from people you haven't talked to in ages, and yet you know that they still think of you sometimes. Birthdays are fantastic ways to make you realize the love. Thank you for the wishes!
