Saturday I turned 36 years young. Crazy to think, I swear I was just 25 although some most my back would make me think I'm 65.

I'm closer to 40 than 30, which is crazy to think- it initially made me cringe at the thought of it. I used to think as people over 35 as so OLD...but now that it's me I really don't think it's true. I don't think it's part of denial (LOL), I truly feel so alive and happy with life, that it makes me look forward to another year. Life is meant to be enjoyed, so I"m ready for another trip around the sun and all that is coming.
I wanted to share a few things that have served as a great reminder to me this past year, and things I'll keep in mind going forward. It's important to keep learning, even as you grow older- I think it's a true lesson in adulthood.

Not caring what people think is the greatest form of self love.
-I'm super goofy, opinionated, and realize that I'm not everyone's cup of tea. BUT, not caring what other people think of you is SO important. Stop the comparison trap, let yourself LIVE your best life.

Sometimes you just need a break.
-Going 100 MPH, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week just isn't realistic. You can have it all, you just can't have it all at once, a wise woman named Oprah said. It's okay to slow down- the view is sometimes better in that lane.
Standing up for what you believe in is never a bad idea. 
- I love hard, and fight for what I believe in. I won't back down or give up when I feel something deep in my heart and think you should always give 110% for anything you're passionate about.

I had a wonderful weekend with my family, we  relaxed, ate good food, laughed so much and was so spoiled with a great time. I'll share more later this week, but here's a few pics from the weekend until then.

Bella, her ravioli...and her beads. LOL (that face!)

I hope you all have a great week, I'm enjoying one more day off before getting back to the office and am looking forward to next weekend already ;)
