I've haven't been excited to celebrate my birthday in 15 years. this experience has made me feel seen

I turned 40 in February '21 and I couldn't be more excited! Being a mom to three boys ages 5 and under has taught me to really own who I am as a woman. I've learned to claim and  hold sweetly to what serves me. 

My husband and partner in life not only encourages my growth, he celebrates and learns from it alongside me. It's such an honor to be his wife and my boys' mother. More importantly, its an honor to be me!
