Top 4 from my 30th year

Happy Friday friends! It's been a bit of a whacky week here with a snow day on Wednesday / Thursday and now it's the weekend and a birthday weekend at that! To be completely honest this birthday absolutely snuck up on me, but this past year has been one of the best! I wanted to share my five favorite moments from my 30th year! 

We bought our first home ||

I had it on my 30 before 30 list to buy a home and I'm counting it as a win since it happened in my 30th year! I still remember going to the closing and signing all the paperwork - it was a surreal feeling! 

California Road Trip ||


Hands down the best trip we took last year was to California! It felt like a second honeymoon & we got to see so much of the coast! I have recommended this drive, all the places we stayed and everything we did to so many people and I'm always so happy when people tag me during their trip because it brings back those great memories! Santa Barbara was my favorite stop during the trip and we really hope to go back one day!

Floating through the air ||

I wouldn't say I'm a thrill seeker by any means, but when the opportunity came up to go in a hot air balloon while we were in Napa, we jumped at the chance. 

The best birthday celebration ||


I didn't really know what I wanted to do for my 30th birthday, but I knew I wanted to be surrounded by family and friends and that's exactly what I got. I rented out the private room of Beauty & Essex in NYC and chose a menu that was so indescribably good, we are all still talking about the food. I woke up the next morning with sore cheeks from smiling and laughing so much the night before. Truly one of the best birthday's ever!
Of course there were other trips, so many memories made and lots of accomplishments that made this year one of the best ever. I was so nervous to turn 30 - I had this vision of what I thought 30 meant and oh my gosh was I wrong. Turning 30 and being lucky enough to have this year of learning, pushing myself in different ways both personally and professionally have proved that this decade ahead is going to be amazing. It'll be hard to top 30, but I'm hopeful that 31 will be just as great! 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  16. I was so freaked out about turning 30 as well, but obviously we didn’t have anything to worry about! Buying a house is such a big deal, and that’s awesome that you were able to do it this year with Gary! And oh California! It’s so beautiful and I need to go back!

  40. Looking at your hot air balloon photos got me weak in the knees! But the photos are so amazingly beautiful. The house purchase totally counts and I'm so glad that California also made the top 4!
