This is 27!

This is 27! After a fantastic birthday weekend, I am ready to take on 27 like a rock star!

The past few years, I’ve looked at my birthdays in a reflective way. Spending time thinking about what I’ve done and what I want to do. But not this year. This year I’m ready to make things happen! There have been so many changes in my life over the last few years, most of them out of my control. But this last year, the changes have been all mine.

I feel like things are going non-stop this morning and I’m definitely not complaining! But I have had to make some adjustments in my day-to-day life. I’ve really had to make a conscious effort to take better care of myself. I’m eating better and exercising regularly. I go to bed at a decent hour on school nights (and if I can, on the weekends as well!) and try to get real rest. It’s so nice to feel healthy and rested when my alarm goes off (at the crack of dawn) instead of dreading it and hitting snooze one too many times.

Things are going great with Kidd’s Kids and I’m so proud of the progress we’ve made. Last year, I wanted to focus on increasing the awareness about Kidd’s Kids so people could see what we’re doing and I feel like we’re really starting to get there. We’ve grown a lot over the last year and I feel like we’ve accomplished a lot. Seeing the Teen Trip come to life has been such a fun journey. It’s so cool to see my brainchild come to life!

For the first time in years, I feel like I’m truly living my “authentic life”. The seeds I’ve spent the last few years planting are finally coming into harvest and I’m seeing the results. I used to be afraid of getting older because I was unsure of what the future held. Afraid I wouldn’t be where I thought I should be at each age. But I’ve learned that sometimes the right place to be is exactly where you are. Now, the older I get, the more confident and sure of myself I become.

I probably don’t say it nearly enough, but I am so grateful for all of the love and encouragement I’ve received in the past few years. From the longtime listeners who remember me from “Bath Time with Caroline” to the new followers who just like my clothes on Instagram, I am overwhelmed by the support. Thanks to everyone who has followed my journey along the way. I hope you’ll stick with me because I’m just getting started!
