So it’s here…..the big 3-0. It feels different than I imagined – but not in a bad way. Different …. weird. I’m sitting on my friends’ roof-deck writing this post – overlooking Culver City. Thinking how small and insanely large the world is. Thinking that I thought I’d have a husband and a house and kids by 30….and I’m oddly OK with not being there. My life has taken twists and turns. I’m not the person I thought I would be….but in some ways I’m better. So I choose to embrace the big 3-0. Focus on health, happiness and forward motion.
Here are some LA snapshots to illustrate my trip:
Lovely eh? Los Angeles was a good idea. I needed sunshine, friends and relaxation…and good food! I have enjoyed some delicious meals already – like *perfect* burgers at Father’s Office:
I had dinner with some girly friends on Friday night in Venice and enjoyed amazing Italian-inspired cuisine. I wish I had taken pictures! Suffice to say, next dineLA I encourage you to go here and order a Yogi Berra (pineapple rum, sage, lime and grapefruit….divine):
I got to see the city from Mulholland Drive (the best view in LA, hands down):
I went to the amazing Craft for my birthday dinner with Tyler and Heather (we should have snapped pix!):
Oh and Cinnamon-Sugar beignets for dessert. SO AMAZING.
I spent one day completely alone – driving, eating lunch alone, shopping alone (I hate doing this!) and just enjoying my own company. It was surreal. I’m not used to not having someone to talk to! (I talk. A LOT. So much so that I annoy myself sometimes…).
Overall I’m happy where I am – excited to move forward and open myself up to whatever the universe has in store. If I have learned one thing in my twenties it’s that the fastest way to spark change is by telling the Universe your plans! 🙂
I’m going to do my best not to dictate my life….sit back, enjoy and see where the road takes me!
Here I am at the ripe old age of 30 and 3 days rocking my nerdy glasses!
