I’m now 32 and we have a baby and so much has changed! Obviously my 33rd year will be dominated by baby adventures… there will be so many firsts, and challenges, and memories to cherish! Thus when I thought about my goals, it seemed natural that baby would take the forefront. That said, I also […]
A year ago things like diamonds, private jets and fancy cars would have topped the list when I thought of luxury. Taking incredible vacations and having endless funds and not ever having to work anymore would have also been considered.

I spoiled myself yesterday with this most beautiful bouquet of flowers! It wasn’t because I was feeling down and needed a pick-me-up. It wasn’t a reward for some job well done or a special occasion.
