There’s nothing I wish I knew before this point. Nothing I wish someone had told me. No list of things I wanted to have done, read or places visited before reaching this age.
I just know that I want to use what I've learned in the first 40 years to make the rest of my life the best I can. Here's to walking unapologetically and unashamed in your greatness.
For my birthday, we have an intimate get together with family and friends. Instead of gifts, I asked guests to take a quick portrait in my DIY photo booth corner which was just a stool and one light. Although I wasn’t able to get a portrait of everyone, having these portraits is my way of remembering this night and those who loved me enough to celebrate my milestone birthday. Check them out below.
