Thank you guys for all the birthday wishes! Last night at the @mgmnationalharbor was magic ✨, & today I spent the afternoon with my mom, laughing & going through old photos. 💕♥️ Swipe over to see a throwback to this day in 1987. My parents look like babies themselves. 😭 Love them so much.

🇫🇷✈️ thanks, Paris, for the beautiful memories! Happy to be home to celebrate with my family & prep for the new year. 😄
“Oo! Let’s order a mille-feuille! I saw someone make it on The Great British Bake Off.” 😂

I’ve had the best time living with Gammy & spending lots of time with my family while Jer has been away for work.
And thank you all for your messages. I honestly haven’t felt great this year - constantly tired, headaches, rarely having the energy for any hobbies. I blamed it on work stress or turning thirty, but this fall, my arm started going numb almost every day. I rarely go to the doctor, but that worried me. Long story short, he diagnosed me with an under-active thyroid (hypo) and a Vitamin D deficiency. It’s all new to me, but I hope to start feeling back to normal at some point. I’m glad, at least, that I know what it is. I’m also glad my doctor took the time to really listen to me (I get my blood work done again in January to see how things are going).
To end my little life update on a very happy note, Jer is finishing up work as I type this, and we are meeting in Paris to celebrate! I landed this evening, & he’ll arrive tomorrow. Neither of us have been before - can’t wait to explore and eat! 🥐☕️😋 (I filmed a “what’s in my carry on” video right before I left. I’ll try to get it up soon. 🤗)
😿 Just dropped off Jer at the airport. Forever grateful for him & how hard he works. It’s also wonderful to live close to family & friends who spend extra time with me while he’s gone. 🤗 (Lots of fun plans coming up, & - you’ll see in my stories soon - I’m going to be staying with my gammy for a while. 💃)
Thinking about fun things I want to do this season. Jer wants to go horseback riding (anyone know of a good place to go in VA?), & I want to visit an apple orchard, try new recipes (spending lots of time on Pinterest 😋), & read a ton. What are your favorite fall activities?
Pulled out some favorite fall essential oils & just got in the new @edensgardenoils hydrosols! 🍂🍁 I’ve never used a hydrosol before, but I’ve been curious about them thanks to @aromahead. 💨😌 #essentialoils
coffee + podcast break | I just finished @upandvanished - couldn't stop listening & recommend it if you like true crime. Thanks, @apack392, for telling me about it! Now, I don't know what to start next. Thinking about Accused? Let me know if you have listened to either. 🤓📚☕️
Did anyone else love the movie FernGully growing up? I thought about it for the first time in years while on a hike this morning. I remember thinking Zak was cute 😂 & being scared of the Hexxus. 🌿
