I celebrated my birthday the past couple of days with friends and family! I felt overwhelmed and blessed to be surrounded by amazing people in my life. Thank you for the endless love and for accepting me for who I am, you all know who you are :) Days before my birthday I spent some time with my brother playing monopoly deal (best game ever) and went on a walk with my parents, and it just reminded me that life is short and to cherish the time you have with loved ones. My relationship with my mom hasn't always been the best, but as I'm getting older I'm starting to understand her and love her for her. I thought I would include the picture of the tulips because I had a good laugh taking this picture, it's actually my brother's hands. I was showing him how I would like him to take the picture since my hands were full, but after a good fifteen minutes I decided it wasn't going to work out. I tried to convince him to paint his nails, but obviously that didn't happen - oh the things I do for a photo.
