  1. Happy birthday dear Bronwyn! I never thought I’d say this to anyone I’ve never actually met but I am glad you’re in my life. I feel you’re a kindred spirit and the fact that you’re halfway round the globe just makes it that much more special. Have a fantastic day (and I love your list)!

  2. and YOU. I think you are also awesome. I love your list, okay I don’t like coffee but that’s okay because if we were in person friends, you could have it all and that would make us both happy ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Happy day.

  3. Oh Happy (late) Birthday to you lovely girl (love that your daughter calls you a girl which at 36 you sure are ) and all your lovely things, hope you had a lovely day XXX
