5things1A Soul Cycle ride with girlfriends on my birthday

Last weekend, I spent it in Montreal celebrating my girlfriend Suzy’s bachelorette.  As predicted, I was struggling to stay awake and party past midnight.  I’m definitely feeling my age because it takes me a week to recover from a bachelorette weekend.  The best part about the weekend for me was catching up with my 2 girlfriends for 6 hours in the car ride up to Montreal.  It was the most fun I’ve had during a car ride.  I find myself savoring these kinds of moments more and more as I get older.  It’s becoming increasingly rare to be able to spend 6 uninterrupted hours with my girlfriends.  This week also happened to be my birthday.  I always cry on my birthday because I feel overwhelmed with gratitude that all of my friends and family consistantly shower me with love.  Since I celebrated my big 30 in a big way last year, I wanted this year’s celebration to be very low key.  I can’t wait to celebrate with my family this weekend and get some sleep!  These are the things I’ve been lovin’ this week.  TGIF!
