A Birthday Self Portrait
This month for my birthday, I spent at day at my favourite beach town of Coolangatta with my family. It was a lucky warm and sunny day in winter, and one of those times where everything feels calm, beautiful and perfect in the moment. There was just the right amount of warm sunshine, fresh food, gentle cool breeze, refreshing ocean, a beautiful sunset and time with family. I am always in awe of how picturesque this place is. I spent the afternoon taking photos along the beach, admiring the natural beauty. After dusk my family surprised me with cake at tea at my favourite Palazzo Versace. I’m often not good with birthdays, and I’m not sure why. But this day immersed in all things that make my heart the happiest – love, nature, food, sunshine, photography and pretty dresses was a good way to focus on celebrating joy and what’s important.
