Turning 31

I absolutely loved turning 30. I had a very slight wobble which lasted a few days a couple of months prior and from then on in I loved every bit of it. So why am I finding 31 so much more difficult? It’s just one more year and nothing has really changed. Well, that’s exactly…

To The Brilliant Women I Love
