Yes, today is my birthday. My 28th birthday to be exact. Throughout my life, my birthday has always inspired me to reflect on the past year and look forward to the new year ahead. While I can’t believe that I am 28 years old (my 1o year high school reunion is scheduled for this year. What?!), I truly love who I am at this stage of my life and I wouldn’t trade in my years of mistakes, growth, and amazing memories for a younger age. I am thankful that I am surrounded by amazing friends, family, a partner who understands me, and all of you. Thank you for being a part of my journey to discovery and growth.
