On a more serious note, I almost can’t believe I’ve now officially been alive for thirty years. In a lot of ways I still feel like a kid, but I guess a part of me feels (slightly) more mature at the same time.

There were so many things that I had hoped to accomplish by 30 that I didn’t – have a book published of my DIY projects, professionally style another author’s book, create a product line, etc, etc. BUT I’m happy with what I have accomplished thus far and will focus on crossing off those ‘yet to accomplish’ to-dos as they come, even if it’s a little late. Look at me, talking like a fancy grown up.

Hope you’re having a good week! I’ll be back tomorrow with some DIYs to try for the weekend.
