Today I turn 33 years old. I think this photo is a pretty good representation of the past year—and also an accurate prediction of the year to come.

    I come by frequently to read your musings and I have thoroughly enjoyed them to the point where I check frequently and when there’s no update, I get sad. 😛

    Hope you have a fantastic birthday! I wish you many more birthdays to come. 🙂

    Lots of love to you on your birthday Anna!

    And while you may have worked very hard this year (and may work just as hard next year) don’t forget to pat yourself on the back for all your accomplishments and successes this past year 🙂 You’re an inspiration xx

    One of the closets in our bedroom looked like that just two days ago (luckily the plumbers patched it up). Renovation is so scary looking sometimes!
