I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to confront only the essential facts of life, and to see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. - Henry David Thoreau, Walden

30th Celebrations

You guys. My 30th birthday was a dream. So many friends and family celebrating. So much happiness. My sisters threw me and Bill such a beautiful party filled with favorites - People and wine and lights and gifts -  I felt so special and cared for in such an individual and incredible way.  Below are some moments that Faith's camera captured and to say I am blessed by them would not be enough.  The party sparkled and laughter resonated.  Wine flowed and amazing food was served.  It all touched my heart and was everything I imagined. To my sisters, thank you, from the bottom of my heart.  You can't know how much it meant. And to my husband, I would choose you every time. You are my everything. We spent the following day in wine country nearby with Bill's parents and my parents arrive tomorrow for more celebration.  I think what I have learned through it all is that it is important to celebrate the milestones
On Saturday I turn 30. I think in my more youthful years I saw 30 differently, and now that I am here I see it as an opportunity.  An opportunity to be more comfortable in my own skin.  To release anything dramatic.  To pick up things that feed my soul.  To learn to take care of myself holistically – spirit, body and mind.  To learn that happiness can be about contentment, and not necessarily overflowing joy.  To stop spreading myself so thin and do things on my terms.  To discover my own personal style in home and clothing and life, and be proud of it.  To just be present instead of always trying to impress people. By no means do I consider myself wise, but I do think in the past 30 years I have gained perspective, and I am so grateful for the life I have been given.  This was a big decade for me!  The amount that happens in a 10 year span is unimaginable.   I moved to California in my 20s, found the love of my life and married him, bought a home, traveled to Europe twice
