The birthday blogpost is a week late but I guess it’s better late than never 🙂
This time last week it was my 31st birthday and I was basking in so much love. From calls to visits, gifts, prayers and a surprise party … it was a wholesome day filled with so much joy.
It feels just like yesterday when I wrote about my journey to thirty here. On the eve of my 31st birthday, I spent some time reading my thoughts from 1 year ago and was fascinated that a lot of things hadn’t changed. I am still grateful for the same things and still have the same desires like I did last year(for the most part). In the last year, my enthusiasm was tested in various ways but like never before I am filled with gratitude.
The highlight of the last year for me was my baby sister’s recovery from her lupus diagnosis. It was a challenging couple of months for her which she documented here. I am extra grateful for her smile!
Now to Thirty-One
The below quote by one of my favorite people – Maya Angelou summarizes perfectly my desire for the new year:
Here’s to thirty one and to laughing my heart out every chance I get ❤️
