45 Things to Celebrate!

45 Things to CelebrateIt’s birthday time and with that comes reflection. Looking back on what I have accomplished in the past year. Looking forward to what I hope to achieve in the next year. And most importantly, being present in this current moment with gratitude. Pausing for a moment to celebrate all of my beautiful blessings.

Last night I celebrated with some of my dearest friends and I am left in awe.  I am so lucky I am to be surrounded by such loving, intelligent, creative and inspiring girlfriends!

So cheers to 45!

Here are 45 things I have to celebrate – right now as I start my new year:

  1. My daughter who was the first to change my life forever and bless me with my most precious title “mom.” She is a beautiful, intuitive and compassionate earth angel.
  2. My son, who proved to me there is at least one perfect man on this earth – lol! He is so intelligent, creative and social and takes such good care of his mom.
  3. My mom. She is truly one of my biggest supporters and now that I am a mom I know how much she deeply loves me.SAM_2016 (5)
