99 years since this country first saw freedom.

Happy birthday, dear Estonia!

99 years ago this country had the chance to become independent and it took it. Although we were occupied again and had to wait until we could gain independence the second time, we are independent right now to celebrate our 99th birthday. The last 4 years I have lived abroad and haven’t had a chance to celebrate Estonia’s birthday. But this year we celebrated with a walk through the forest and a lot of cake!

Also, we had the chance to listen to the speech by our new female president. What an example she is. She is an example to all little girls out there – you can do it! I feel like I would love to meet her and speak to her about her ideas and thoughts.

The night ended with looking at all the lovely dresses at the party and enjoying some Estonian films.

I am so lucky to come from a country like Estonia.
