30 Years. 30 Blessings. Celebrating Amidst a Pandemic.

30.....Yes, 30! How did this happen? I've always been told that time flies, but never has that sank in quite like this milestone in such a weird, weird time in our world. As I enter this new chapter of my life (during the COVID pandemic), I've had time to reflect on all the wonderful (and not so wonderful) things that have happened in my life so far that have led me to where I am right now and have really shaped me into the person that I am today. So I thought...what better way to kickoff my blog than to show a little gratitude to the many, many things that I have to be thankful for in my life...TRUE BLESSINGS!


Though I could write pages and pages about these 30 blessings in my life, I will spare you by keeping it short and sweet (Haiku style), as I'll circle back to many of these things more in-depth in my future blog posts.


Without further ado...in no particular order....my greatest blessings!
