I have the best family.

The three best decisions I ever made, were marrying Mister_Wheats and creating our two miniwheats.

There’s no need for lots of friends, just a few really really good ones. (you know who you are ladies)

Date nights are very important.

My commitment phobia is still going strong.

Regular exercise and a healthy routine benefit you, and everyone around you.

I loved being in my 20’s but I never want to be in my 20’s again.

Experiences are greater than things.

Travel often.

Girls weekends maintain sanity.

If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.

Stick to the things you’re good at and outsource the rest.

A good cleaning service will make you feel like you won the lottery every week.

Create family traditions.

Family dinners are non-negotiable.

There’s very little that pizza can’t cure. And wine, wine helps too!

Find your tribe and stick close.

If you love your job you’ll never work a day in your life. Shout out to @Hubba

Hug like you mean it.

Take time to listen.

Always buy the shoes.

Call your Grama. I always have updates to share with mine.

Never turn down a chance to hit the spa.

Purge frequently. In all aspects of your life.

In the words of Zoe (and Elsa) learn to “Let it go”.

Learn to accept a compliment.

A quick trip to Target can cure just about anything.

Peanut Butter Cups should be eaten frozen, as should Thin Mints.

Always tell those most important people in your life how much you love them.

Thank you Tremain, Thomas and Zoe, for taking such good care of me and for celebrating my birthday as enthusiastically as you know I would want you to!

Here’s to my 37th year, may it be healthy + happy!
