30 for 30.

last month involved a lot of personal growth.
and not the fun kind either.
the kind where there's none for the money & plenty for the show.
and granted, while it was exactly what i had prayed for,
{one of my biggest fears in life is to become stagnant}
i had a bit more sparkle and pizzaz involved in my ideas of
what i thought those growing opportunities should be.

one of my favorite parts of being home a few weeks ago was sitting at a brunch table
with the two women who know me best in this world.
case in point:
i had put together the idea to celebrate my birthday early,
but with the events of last month, the planning kept getting put off.
and i was sorta to a point where i was going to make them go to mcdonald's with me
and eat french fries because i just couldn't add another thing to my plate.
one night i got a text asking me if i had made any sort of reservation for the lunch.
i said no.
and without even a second thought,
i got a text back saying they would take care of it.
and that was that.
when they picked me up for lunch,
they did so in a car with a back seat flooded in flowers and balloons
and presents and most importantly...THEM.

i swear,
my people are the kind of people they write tv shows about.

in the card karla gave me with my present,
she had written down a list of her 30 wishes for me during my 30th year.
and while i normally would keep something like this incredibly private and close to my heart,
there is so much wisdom in this list,
{it is molded so perfectly towards my dreams}
that i couldn't help but share it.
in hopes you can find some possibly needed motivation
to get out there and work for your best you.

and while i know many of you have your own friends who make your worlds go round,
let me share a bit of fabulousness from mine...
