Thirty, Flirty & Thriving

Yesterday I had a Birthday. It was a pretty big Birthday. The big three zero. Thirty….but wait, didn’t I just turn 25 last year? The past five years have flown by…and I definitely don’t feel 30!

I didn’t do much for my birthday (I will celebrate with my family over the weekend) but I was able to relax a bit, play a few games(scramble with friends & draw something) on my iPhone and have some frozen yogurt (yum!). Oh, and my niece Peyton, who is finishing up her freshman year of college, wrote a little blog post in honor of my Birthday. It was a great present to receive :)

Last week I was digging through my files—in search of some photos for Peyton (my digital photos are a mess. Must. Organize. Photos.) and I came across some photos of me that I had forgotten I even had! So, because I am a geek (and possibly feeling a little reflective due to my birthday), I made a little photo board with a few of the favorite photos I came across. I thought that it would be fun to share them with everyone!


In celebration of my birthday, I made some cute photoshop brushes for y’all to have for free! I love photoshop brushes—they are so fun to play with! This brush set of 10 brushes will work with both photoshop and photoshop elements. In the download file I have included both the .abr file and individual 300 dpi .png’s of each brush.
