Guys, it’s my birthday. My 29th birthday, to be exact. The past month as been such an incredible whirlwind that I haven’t really given today much thought. And, to be perfectly honest with you, moving to California is sort of the best ‘gift’ I could have ever hoped to receive. When I look back on where I was last year versus this year… well, I can’t even. Last year I was reeling from a break up, unsure of the direction of my life, and totally homesick for the west. I am so incredibly grateful for the amount of change my life has undergone this past year. And, while I’m not celebrating with piles of sweets and much dancing, I am planning to celebrate by reveling in the gorgeous sunsets of San Francisco and giving my tiny zoo a good cuddle.┬áHere’s to another year full of growth and discovery!
