As I wrap up my 30th year around the sun, I reflect on the thirty things to know at 30.

I'm older and wiser, right?


My birthday is coming up next week and I'm turning 31. Shoutout to my 1991 babies. Crazy to think a pandemic was how I was going to end my twenties though. TBH I wasn't looking forward to turning 30, but it's been one of the best years of my little life. This week's newsletter is set up a bit differently. I am definitely (definitely) not claiming to have it all figured out but here's some things I know at 30…
