35 feels like a milestone birthday. It’s been a life-changing year, that’s for sure. Many of my goals have been realized, and things have come in to place that will help me along with my long-term plans. Overall, I’m happy with how I’m celebrating my birthday, and look forward to the rest of the year.
June has been an intense joyride! It’s nearing the end of the 2nd quarter, it’s mid-way through the year, and I’m turning 35 next week! All this calls for reflection time spent journaling, goal-setting, and being still. Much #gratitude to all the lovely new and old people in my life and all the opportunities that continue to come my way!

2. Enjoying the company of people I care about
This goes along with #3, but I am going to have a small birthday dinner with a couple of my favourite people, thinking about other favourite people in my life. Instead of spending my birthday by myself, I will be with someone I care about, spending time doing one of my favourite things: exploring cultural institutions.
3. Eating yummy food
Think: cake, pizza, and good company and you’ll have an idea of my ideal way of celebrating! I’m going to make pizza (I’ll share the recipe soon!), a chocolate cake with fresh strawberry frosting, and and enjoy it with one of my favourite people. It’s going to be heavenly! This is a very welcome change to having (hee hee) to eat the entire cake by myself.
How do you like celebrating birthdays?
