This is 31 | Birthday Reflections

Thirty One 🎈 Another year alongside my greatest loves. A lot can change in a year. I heard the sound of my baby’s footsteps pattering across our kitchen floor. I heard his soft voice utter “I love you” for the first time. And we blew out his first candles together. This was also the year of Summer Fridays. I watched our little blue tube appear on Sephora’s homepage for the first time. Marianna and I cried when we saw it on store shelves. And we bought every copy of Vogue after it appeared on its pages ✨ Thirty was a year of highs, and a year of lessons. I learned how to be kinder to myself, when I struggled to find my way between being a mom and showing up for work. I learned to trust my ability to be a mom, and a wife, and a colleague, and a friend — if even imperfectly at times. and I was reminded that life spoils us with surprises we cannot predict, and when we live each day with gratitude, our glass is always full. Thank you for allowing me to share a part of my journey here. Here’s to watching the light shine even brighter than the year before…
