Birthday Reflections

A couple of weeks ago, I crossed over to the other side of 30. Trying to ignore it only lasted but a few hours, as a surprise bouquet of tulips made its way to the office. Cover blown, I surrendered to it and thoroughly enjoyed it, with pie from the coworkers, a cozy dinner with bf, and, as a cherry on top, a phone call from the family birthday chorus (warbly grandma included - and in top form, I might add) before turning in for the night.

I've pulled some inspiring imagery for my 31st year from my Pinterest. Among the many things I still need to do in this life, feasible and fantasy:
