Today is my 30th birthday and on my to-do list is removing “twenty-something” out of every bio I have online (sigh). JK – I think I’ll leave that in there until I’m 40. On my real to-do list is drinking a glass of champagne around noon, snuggling with my sweet boy, and going out to dinner with my love tonight!
I won’t be wearing this fabulous dress, but I wanted to share it with you because it’s one of my favorite party dresses and is perfect for the holiday season. It’s made of slimming material and comes in 6 colors. This fuchsia color is so gorgeous and fun. The fringe is definitely my favorite part.
Turning 30 is kind of a weird thing. You feel like you should lament the end of your twenties, because well, that’s what people do, right? In reality, this has been my year. I’ve taken big risks, made big life decisions and basically transformed my life. I’m excited about what I’ve accomplished and what’s in store for the future. I think for a lot of people your twenties are a bit of a hot mess. The balancing act of trying to get your life together, find the good job, keep the good job, climb the career ladder, keep a social life, pay the bills, date. Looking back – I spent the majority of my twenties completely and utterly committed to my chosen career. Over those ten years, I must have moved at least 10 times. I sacrificed my social life by working insane hours, missed a lot of holidays, vacations and important moments. But I’m still so proud of it all. I followed my heart and my passion.
I don’t know what is in store for my 30’s but I know I’m ready for whatever they bring. I’m more confident in myself and my ability to design my life, to say no, to take chances. I have the opportunity to travel the world. I have a beautiful little boy that I get to spend every day with. I have a man who is there by my side for it all, my biggest supporter. A wonderful family. A group of amazing women that I get to call my friends. What else can you ask for?
Thank you to all of my family, friends, readers and followers for the birthday wishes! Your love and support means the world to me <3
