At the beginning of the day, to be honest, my birthday felt a little surreal. I’m not huge on big celebrations when it comes to my birthday, but celebrating in a brand new city, far away from the people I love was tough. And then I received these gifts (plus a few more gift card in my inbox) in the mail and they were all so thoughtful and perfect, it made me feel like they weren’t so far away.
And then Brian cooked me a homemade spaghetti and meatball dinner and we clinked our glasses to 30-years with some delicious Malbec red wine. It was a quiet, sweet and perfect celebration.
At the end of the day and after I reflected on what I learned in my 20s, I felt excited for my 30s and for all the new experiences to come!
Sweet cards from my little sisters Madeline and Olivia!
