So today is my birthday and I am now 30 years old! I know many people are terrified to turn 30 (especially Alan - he turns 30 tomorrow, I know its weird that our birthdays are 1 day apart) but I am really excited about it. I feel like my 20's were a lot of hard work - a lot of fun along the way too - but I feel like I really worked non stop through university, post grad and opening up a business to get where I am today. Now to be fair I also got married, bought my first home and had 2 children - so there were many incredible milestones along the way - some of the best moments of my entire life I am sure. But I feel like at this moment I am comfortable and ready to enjoy my life and really begin living more in the moment. I am so happy with the family that Alan, Ewan, Isla and I have become and I love that our home really fits us and our needs. I also feel like I have the time and energy now to devote to friends and family as well as to my health. I am also relieved that I am not always two steps behind at A Gym Tale anymore and that I really enjoy going in to work. Alan and I have been able to bring on incredible staff that make it possible for us to enjoy being at A Gym Tale without feeling overwhelmed.
I am hopeful that the coming years will bring many great moments as well as challenges to continue to push myself. I am also thankful to my husband Alan, my family and my friends who have helped shape my life to what it is today as well as to the community who have helped to make A Gym Tale the great place it has become.
