Yellow Dress & Celebrations

Oh darling friends, thank you for bearing with me during this crazy month I've had. Have you ever had a time where you're craving nature and can't even think of being in front of a camera or being on social media? That was May. I couldn't help it. It's been beautiful outside and being outdoors, running through trails and trying to take care of myself really took presence.

Oddly enough, celebrating my birthday really brought me back into my creative space. I've spoken about being around creative people before and how empowering it can be for me. Simply going to an art gallery or sitting in on a show or seeing a band can help me get out of my own head for a change.

This year I didn't plan to do much for my birthday. I didn't want to do much. To be honest, my birthday is a day of reflection for me. Some people go crazy and need to be around a ton of people. Some people, like me, take the time to reflect on their year. They also might review their finances for the upcoming year, plan where they want to go and put together a budget to make it happen. Which is exactly what I did.

However, day of was a lot more eventful than I had intended. I spent the day with 5 out of 6 family members and we went to see James Taylor and his all-star band at the Key Arena. For a 70 year old man, he was jumping, dancing and full of life as any! He was such an inspiration. Being able to experience seeing him with my parents was amazing. I grew up listening to his music, along with The Beatles, The Monkees (Davie was my favorite), Billy Joel (my parents are from Long Island) and so many others. James Taylor was a bucket list item that I didn't think was possible. I couldn't have had a better day.

It was definitely a unique birthday. I tried so hard to not make a big deal out of it - but no one would let me! Which I can't tell you how much I appreciated. My friends and family really went out of their way to make me feel adorned. One of my best friends was in LONDON and she still managed to leave me a voicemail. Gem, right? It's a blessing to have support and love all around me and I am grateful everyday for it.

So that's what's up with me. I've got a few posts that I'm working on lining up in the queue but I'd love to know how you guys are doing.

Thanks for stopping in today. Outfit dets below!
