The Big 3-0

Vancouver at it's finest...

Vancouver at it's finest...

What is it about entering your 30's that seems to force life reflection? The two weeks before my birthday I wasn't the most, hmmm, joyful(?) person to be around. Initially, I thought it was the incessant rain and freezing weather getting me down. Maybe Vancouver wasn't for me anymore? Next, I thought it was the lack of sleep due to constant brain chatter and a snoring boyfriend. Was I just hormonal? Yes, these things weren't helping but they weren't the root problem...

The majority of my 20's I spent too afraid to take any risks. I'm not talking about summiting Everest or anything, but it prevented me from doing so many things I wanted to just try. It was a refreshing reality check to face this fact and it's motivating me to start my 30's on a different path. I left my blog sitting here for the past year because I had no idea what direction I wanted to go in and what purpose it was serving. Going forward, I'd like to start trying new things and use this blog as a platform to document them and motivate me to keep pushing myself. Help me figure out what I want to do with my life. Where and how do I want to live? What do I want to be when I "grow-up?" So, I'm going to post about these things (successes and failures), interspersed with some fashion and travel goodies. Essentially, this is my online journal.
