Birth, Bravery, and Giveaways {Personal}


So I have a little secret… okay it is not a secret. In fact anytime you look at my drivers license, you can see it. And that is my birthday, in a few days I will turn the big 30. The Dirty Thirty. Or what I like to call it… Thirty and Fabulous.

What you don’t know is that I wanted to do something crazy. This year has been one of the craziest years in my life and I wanted to document how I feel about myself. So I did a 30th Cake Smash. Yes, with hair, make up, a cake, and WINE- because you are only 30 once. I did this session in the summer – because no one wants to freeze for a December outdoor cake smash session. So I have been sitting on this secret for almost 5 months and I have been dying to tell you all!

One of the reasons I did this was to document how I feel about myself, but the other reason was to be brave. I ask my clients all of the time to celebrate and smile in front of my camera. How can I not also ask myself to do that as well? I know that it can be scary to be in front of a camera- but you deserve to be celebrated and to document exactly how you are right at this moment. Maria, the owner of Sketchbook Photography, did an amazing job photographing how I feel about turning 30.

Here is a sneak peek:


Lastly, with my birthday coming up… I want to celebrate! So over the next week or so, I will be giving away daily surprises that are my favorite things!

Tell me about your favorite birthday in the comments!

    It’s a tie between my 7th birthday (when it was Little Mermaid themed and I got a bike) and my 18th birthday when we went to Chuck E. Cheese and played skee ball! Haha! Happy 30th!

    For my 10th birthday, my parents got me a puppy. I named him Darby, and he was my favorite!! He was like a squishy, fuzzy bundle of cookie dough <3

    My favorite Bday was my 30th, last month! My hubby surprised me with a trip to Branson and most important, it was a needed break from my children πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚
