Well this is it…today I am 29 years old. It's my last year of being a 20-something. Pretty wild. People have been asking me what I plan to do today to celebrate. But frankly, I have no big plans. Right now I'm just thankful for my life and today I plan to take extra time to appreciate it. Whether it's going for a run with the NYC skyline in the distance, or watching my pug wrestle with other dogs the park, or driving my VW Beetle, or attending my Rotary Club meeting, or enjoying a steak dinner with my husband…I just plan to be grateful.
