Hello 30

Turning 30 is a little surreal and they weren't lying when they say you'll have a better sense of self and direction. I can honestly say, I am far more prepared for this whole adult deal thing than I was at 20, and I suppose I have to finally accept that I am an adult *sigh*. I had a long weekend celebrating with my friends and family, I couldn't have asked for a better way to bring in a new decade than with cake, laughs, and a mini photoshoot taken by my dear friend Brian Liesse.


With inspiration from Officially Quigley on Instagram I wanted to share..
