This past year has been incredible. I lost nearly 30 pounds by eating healthier and working out, then put 10 of it back on over the past three months. Oh well, all the more motivation to get back to the gym and keep working out.

Thank you to all my friends – old and new – for another fantastic year. I am blessed to have such great friends, family, and husband in my life.

Now, here’s to 40!
