happy birthday to me!if you follow me on instagram then it's no secret that today is my birthday. I had plans to write up a whole "45 things I've learned now that I'm 45" as an ode to this middle-ish age I've reached but it didn't feel right. I'm certainly no wiser than most of my peers, I feel more like a 25 year old than someone who's 45 and really, who cares? what I will do is wish you all as much health and happiness as I've been fortunate to enjoy. may you have dear friends, near and far, who make you feel special and appreciated. I hope you're surrounded by family who loves you, supports you, challenges you and makes you laugh. I want you to find something that makes you really happy - a job, a passion, a latent talent, a long-lost friend, or even $5 in the pocket of your jeans when you pull them out of the dryer. take that thing that makes you happy and celebrate it.

and then share whatever that is because it feels really good.
