Happy Birthday To Me

22 August 2021|

Happy 36th Birthday to me.

I thought I was going to write a profound blog post on 36 things I have learnt in this past year, or 36 tips to turning to 36 but the honest truth is… I don’t have all the tips and all the tricks this year. I just have me, unapologetically-all-thirty-six-years of birthday me.

And my birthday self this year is not AS joyful or full of fun as previous years gone by… I’m a little more weary, a little more emotional, a little heavy at the world right now but that’s ok too.

There is a lot going on in the world.

And today, I am grateful to be celebrating another year of life, to have my husband and baby girls to cuddle me and celebrate me today, to have my closest loved ones and ultimate besties love on me today and always, and to have the blessing of loving the life I live.

Happy birthday to me x
