Arriving back to Kuwait yesterday morning at 11 am, just in time to spend my birthday with family 🙌🏻 a great way to start 29.
after being surprised with a cake by my co-stars on the set of @officialsadeem
at 12:45 am when we finally wrapped filming, we were met by our whole @meseoulkool
family as the best birthday gift to myself & Donna (project manager & best friend - not in that order, who spent her birthday on set with me in Dubai on the 9th).
I’m not so big on birthdays, but as I listened to everyone singing for me on set, it hit me that this was the second year I’ve been sung to on set. Last year was in Korea, while @angieq8
& I shot for @meseoulkool.
This year was Sadeem & I’m so lucky to call the people I work with my family, but I was so selfishly consumed with how much I miss my kids & my husband that I forgot something: I should be ridiculously happy that people care for me enough to surprise me - that @angieq8
went out of her way to get a cake in Korea, that @officialsadeem
rallied at 12:45 am to surprise me despite having been on set since before the sun was up, that my @meseoulkool
team members drove to the airport on a weekend to welcome us home. So this one if for you guys who suffer from my bad reactions to surprises: I freaking appreciate you. I freaking love you. Thank you.
