My love took me on the most beautiful surprise adventure yesterday for my bday. A 4-hour kayak trip through mother nature in all her glory. Crystal clear water, turtles, and a delicious breeze. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. I highly recommend everyone take this trip.
On my birthday this year I have so much to be grateful for. I get to spend my days working at a job that I absolutely love, with people who felt like family from day 1. The support from the Vydia team has been so unreal. I get to spend my nights and weekends with the most amazing boyfriend, who not only surprised me at work today with 2 hands full of flowers, but cooked me all my meals, cleaned the apartment, and gave me a bday massage. The best part? These are all things this incredible person does for me all the time. I'm truly spoiled. And I get to come home every night to the beautiful apartment we made together. I get to watch my little sister's growing belly and experience all the joy this little one has already brought to our family. This year I co-founded an extraordinary women's tech group with two incredible women who I'm so lucky to work with and call friends. I've met and connected with so many amazing people as a result. I won an award for 2018 Innovators to Watch in STEM. I have the best family and friends, new and old. I got to plan the biggest surprise for my mom with my sister for her 65th bday and watch her have some of the best few days of her life. My adorable dog! I could go on....
I take great pride in my happy & fulfilling life bc it didnt fall in my lap. It wasn't always like this and I've been through dark times. But I worked incredibly hard for it and on myself. I set standards and intentions and stuck to commitments I made for myself. I surrounded myself with people I admire, who I learn from and laugh with. I fill my brain with things that help me learn and grow. I take care of my physical and mental health.
But of course there is grace. The beautiful things that came into my life that were completely out of my control. And so I also feel so lucky and blessed. I cannot WAIT to see what the next year brings!! Thank you for all of the birthday love!
Such a beautiful day celebrating my sissy and niece. She was still partying in mommy's belly when we got home so I think she liked it. I can't WAIT for her to get here so I can play with her with all her new toys and read her all her new books 💖💖💖
The week of Mother's Day was extra special for my family this year. My mom turned 65 and we planned not one, but two big surprises! We had her whole family fly out from Iowa, including her brother and sister-in-law who have never been out to the East coast. This meant the world to her. My mom excitedly gave them the whole jersey shore and NYC experience. Then a couple days later, we surprised her at her favorite restaurant with all of her friends, including her childhood best friend who lives in Connecticut. It was a reunion to end all reunions. All of my moms favorite people in one room. I've never seen her happier. She said she no longer has anything to complain about from now on :) Love you mama. You deserve it all and more! Thanks to everyone who helped pull it all off!

I only have this one pic of Mazzy as a puppy from her file so I post the same one every year. On this #nationalpuppyday , Mazzy and I would like to take the opportunity to use her cuteness to remind you all to use Earth Friendly, bio-degradable doggy bags instead of plastic. 🌳🐶🌎
