31 Before 31


Hey girl hey! Last Friday I turned 30 and it was maybe the best day. I got to celebrate with my friends at my favorite restaurant Lulu's Local Eatery and even got a surprise cake that my boyfriend arranged with Genuinely Baked, a really kick ass vegan dessert queen. Then we got drinks at a local brewery, 4 Hands. It was awesome and fun and I fell asleep with a huge smile on my face, feeling so loved. 

Literally the next day I came down with a sickness like nothing that's ever happened to me before. This intense, constant pain in my stomach and back. It's still happening but I ended up going to the doctor yesterday who diagnosed me with a intestinal infection. Super fun right? The worst part is there is no antibiotics that you can take for it, you just kind of have to wait for it to pass. It's miserable. I'm on a bland diet and water only right now, so I've been holed up on my couch all week. 30 is not starting out super great. 

After sharing all that fun stuff, I wanted to share my birthday goals for this next year. I've been working on this list for the past few months, jotting down things that I thought would be fun to accomplish in the next year. I also took awhile looking over from last year. I didn't accomplish even half the things I set out to do so I wanted to me more intentional with this list. I want to stretch myself but also be realistic. I feel like I have a good mix of those things and I'm excited to see what 30 has in store for me!
