Around a birthday you tend to re-evaluate your life and look into the future at what’s to come. You learn a lot with every year that passes, like who/what matter, who/what you love, what makes you smile/cry, the list goes on… As I adjust to 30 the one thing life has taught me, and taught me well, is to be unapologetically ME! Love it or hate it I am me and that’s the end of that!
For me, the only way to start 30 was with one hell of a party. Because, frankly, I like to make everything one hell of a party! And why shouldn’t I? We only get to do this life thing once, why not have some serious fun with it!
I shimmy’d my way into the next decade with 7 of my best girlfriends in the fabulous Cartagena, Colombia!! Site seeing, champagne drinking, boat fiestas, shopping, more champagne drinking, and lots of smiles and laughs… If you couldn’t tell I thoroughly enjoy my bubbles! Add on to that a Summer filled with concerts, weekend trips, and more fun than even I know what do with and I’d say this #Summerof30 has been quite the success!
After a celebration like that and only positive things to look forward to, I ask; why do we continue to freak out about turning a year older?? This impending doom we feel about growing older is, in my opinion, quite ridiculous. So far my life just keeps getting better, and what needs to go gets left behind (literally, including my hair, see photo below).
I’ve built a love for travel that has opened my eyes and mind to new worlds and cultures. I’ve made friends around the world, and learned that time and distance mean absolutely NOTHING when it comes to being a friend. I’ve learned to stop sweating the small stuff and enjoy every moment of every day because you really never know when it will be your last. I’ve learned that no matter what, YOU are the most important person in your life. Love you, take care of you, and for goodness sake, be UNAPOLOGETICALLY YOU!!
Aside from a growing skincare regimen to keep me looking as good as I feel, age has brought me nothing but happiness!
On to the next adventure in this #WonderLife of mine…
In the meantime, here’s a behind the scenes peek at my #Summerof30
