On September 23, I turned 24. The day before my birthday, I had a party with some of my friends (the party was also combined with two other occasions, which made it more fun). On my actual birthday, Carlos took me to Dun Laoghaire on the train. It’s a town near Dublin on the coast, and we walked around and along the pier and it was so, so beautiful.

Here are some pictures, if you’d like to see:

After singing Happy Birthday to me in English (and Spanish!) I got cake pushed in my face. It’s tradition in Mexico 😦

I just love him

Such a pretty place with my favorite boy

Though I missed my friends and family back in Texas, it was memorable to celebrate another year of life abroad and made me realize how many blessings God has given me here!
