Birthdays have always been a contemplative time for me. I’ve always loved a fresh start. A new year, a new journal, a new set of Tupperware, whatever. Today at 35, is the first birthday that I am realizing a significant chunk of my life is in the rearview mirror and hopefully, there’s as much or more ahead. I got to open my year at the beach, with a sunrise. It’s going to be an incredible year.
