Golden Birthday, Golden Year


This past birthday (one month ago) was a special one. Not only did it mark my final year in my 20s, but it was my golden birthday. Meaning I turned the age 29 on the 29th day of the month. It so happened that the 29th of May was Memorial Day. 3x Golden. I should be noted that my birthday has fallen on Memorial Day only a couple times: my 1st birthday, my 7th birthday, my 12th birthday (Y2K year), my 18th (the year I graduated high school), and my 29th (the year I got married).

My triple home run topped every other birthday because of all the things that blossomed before and after it: from booking beyond the number of weddings I desired for the year, to spontaneously eloping in my dream city with the man of my dreams, to growing and building friendships that spanned miles away from me, and to finally choosing to be selfish to make myself sane and happy.

To mark this Golden Year, I decided to expand the heart of my business: myself. My biggest desire is for clients to get to know me on a deeper and more personal level. What better way for someone to get to know me than for them to see life from my perspective. To be honest, it was difficult to blog in the past. I felt as if I could only write about makeup or beauty. Since the categories I made for myself were so limited, I got bored quickly and ran out of ideas. So this time around, I'll be writing about my life as a makeup artist, a beauty guru, a home maker, a wife, a traveler, a foodie, and so much more

Btw, a big THANK YOU to all who came out and celebrated life with me on my birthday. I love you all so much. Each and every one of you has shaped me into who I am today.
