37 Life Lessons

Today, I turn the big 3-7! We celebrated over the weekend with a small get-together at our house – complete with peanut butter cup cake, presents, and lots of laughs!

While I definitely enjoyed celebrating with my family and friends, I also love using this time to reflect on my years and the incredible life I’ve been given. I’ve definitely learned A LOT in the past 37 years and thought it would be fun to share 37 life lessons (with some favorite quotes mixed in) in honor of my birthday! I hope you enjoy!
