A new phase

A few weeks ago I turned 30. Extended family all wanted to know how I would celebrate.  They all expected to be invited to a big bash, as I'm the youngest in my family. But nope. I didn't go the big party route. Instead, I opted for a quiet day spent with my closest family.

Turning 30 meant that I was in a new phase of my life. That I had to start appreciating every moment more and that I had to stop people pleasing. I had to start doing things for me. And . . . that is exactly what I did. With the help of my siblings, I finally got some new ink.

My new piece of art

Definitely my idea of starting the year off with a bang. I wanted to get a second tattoo for so long. To top things off, me and my two sisters are going off for a girls-only holiday next week. I know it's going to be fun.

How did, or would you celebrate a big birthday?
