Today is my Birthday…

Yes, yes it is.

Part of me wants to look back and write about all the things I did this year, what I accomplished from my 29 Before 29 list, and all the happy moments that made up this year.   

 But a bigger part of me doesn’t want to look back.  This part is excited for the future – The beginning of my 30th year.  I can hardly believe how my 20’s have flown by! Really, how scary!  But I’m also really motivated to accomplish some new goals this year and make some exciting changes in my life.  I’m definitely going to make a new list today of 30 things I want to do before I’m 30, which I promise to share soon.  It really helps me to be proactive and not put too many things off till “later.” But I am also going to take a bit of time to quietly reflect on the year past and enjoy myself.   

Today I do have to go to work for a while, but then there will be vintage shopping, present opening and a special dinner at a fancy beverly hills restaurant called Bouchon!  I am so excited to spend the day with the Boy and celebrate this, the day of my birth…And it’s my younger brother’s birthday too, so I got to give a shout out to him too! 

Happy Birthday Tyler! 
Really, this has been a great year for the Lilac & Lace blog and I have all of you to thank for that.  I have made some great new bloggy friends, found some great new interests (burgers anyone) and reached 200 followers!  Woo hoo!  Thanks to Kate for being my 200th follower! 
I guess what I’m trying to say is thank you.  Thanks for reading my blog, for showing an interest in my life, for sharing your lives with me and for all the happiness you bring me.  And thanks to my friend Shani of Don’t Smile Now for taking these lovely impromptu photos.  She’s an awesome photographer, don’t you think?  So here’s to an amazing birthday!
We’ve only just begun….
