30 days after 30

I would like to sit here and write only positive things because that’s the tone I’ve always strived for this blog. But I’ll keep it real for this one. Turning 30 didn’t live up to its expectations. I thought that morning I would wake up and fireworks would be going off all day, and perpetually for the rest of my life. My weekend was indeed very special and spent with my family and best friends. Good food was eaten, water-activities were carried out, presents were opened, birthday candles were blown out, and I felt very loved. Yet, the unavoidable happened-the birthday blues came crashing down.

Turning a new decade makes you go through a million different emotions. I was excited, disappointed, sad, angry, unapologetic, indifferent, secluded, calm, and peaceful. You also start to think about what you did in the last 10 years. Meg J. says 30s is not the new 20s. Was my 20s defining enough?


Today, I appreciate my strengths and recognize my capabilities. I look forward to building a legacy, building a family, and continuing my journey.

Cheers to another 30 years.

Nine Zero One

That one time I had "balayage" done to my hair by the owner of Nine Zero One Salon, Nikki Lee...

I couldn't have felt prettier.
