I received a renewal notice this week for my drivers licence. A standard annual event....but this year, beautifully different.
I recalled blogging about this very subject last year. I had always used this anniversary as a milestone of sorts. September had arrived again. Another infertile year had been endured. How many September's would I stumble through still not pregnant? Would I survive another year waiting for my miracle baby?

I lamented. (it's the post from last year if you are interested)

It will be a genuine watershed moment. I will be renewing my 2007 drivers licence during my 27th week of pregnancy.

Nobody else will notice. Not the bored, waiting customers. Not the bitch behind the counter. Nor the nervous P-Plater. But I will know. And even if I walk away with the most hideous, unflattering, cross eyed photo on my licence this year, nothing will veil the glorious, dazzling beauty underneath my cotton blend blouse.

Every year a new licence!
My grandfather still has the one he got when he was in his twenties.
Our driver's licence isn't our main form of ID.

It will be a beautiful picture!
