happy australia day!
i hope you all had a great weekend. my littlest girl turned 1 on saturday. pretty cool / weird / sad / good. a mix of emotions i'd say. :-) but a good weekend. sunday went great. i got to meet the chief of police. that was super cool...great guy. but today, i'm back to the normalcy of monday....except for.....TODAY IS AUSTRALIA DAY!!!! and i'm celebrating!
ok, i do realize that this is the US and not australia...however, my good friends have birthed a slightly amended heritage in me...and that is why i celebrate. originally it started to celebrate something about a guy and some boats in a harbor or something like that (how american of me to give a rip about the details of another country, huh?). and now (since 1994) it's a big national holiday. ironically, it's no longer january 26 in australia right now, but we've still got some time left here in the states. so, there you have it. break out the shrimp, the grill, the fosters, whatever. put on your favorite ac/dc or inxs record and get to it!
have a great day!
