5 minutes left of my birthday. It’s been a great day - and really a great year - filled with so much love, and I am grateful for all of you who’ve given your love.

I’m 40 today, which seemed like such a big, scary number when I was younger. But can I tell you something? It feels good. As a woman, I feel like I know myself and I like who I am. As a partner to my husband, I feel joy and anticipation being on this journey by his side. As a daughter/sister/auntie, I feel even more closely bound in love to the people I call family. As an artist, I feel a great sense of purpose, direction, and fulfillment from the work I do. In so many ways, today feels like a beginning. That’s not something I expected to feel on a milestone like today, but I’ll take it.

Here’s to the next year, in which it’s my goal to live and love with my whole heart. Thanks for all of your many blessings today, friends. <3
