Last year, I celebrated my birthday in Chile with work colleagues, trying to enjoy a birthday dinner at a Japanese fusion restaurant while simultaneously negotiating some difficult details for a Gatorade shoot the next day. This year, I spent the day gallivanting around Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam with my main squeeze, dining on street food at miniature sidewalk tables. Life is an adventure and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Twenty-eight has been a crazy year filled with lows and highs, sadness and happiness, losses and gains, monotony and adventure. At the end of the day, I can say that I am so incredibly grateful for the people in my life-- my family, my friends, and most of all, my love who I get to share this awesome adventure with. Here's to another great year of this journey we call life!
