On one’s birthday it is only customary to look at the past years and analyze yourself: explore your accomplishments, study possible mistakes and achievements; and put together a wish list of  to-do’s for the near future… I am not going to do that. Not that I don’t do any of these things, but because I don’t think Monday morning is the right time for my “wisdom” and deep philosophical thoughts. Let’s save it for Friday or Saturday night with a few glasses of wine 😉

What I will say is this… I realize more and more that I am still getting to know myself as my likes and dislikes change over the years (…sometimes it’s hard to keep up!) I like knowing my comfort zone but appreciate when someone pushes me outside of it and encourages me to explore new opportunities. It’s important to stay true to your style but continue to explore new trends and play with variety. One of my worst fears is becoming boring and predictable. So I can only hope that no matter how many years pass, I will still be chasing my ever-changing self while remaining true to my values.

Happy Monday everyone!

P.S. And please pardon my crazy hair on some of the pictures – Chicago wind is not known for bing kind to anyone’s hair styling efforts.
