30 Life Lessons to Learn Before You Turn 30


Turning the Big 30 was an interesting year for me. Why you ask? I had moved back to the Midwest after living over 6 years in NYC. It was a trying time and I missed everything that NYC offered, the food, the fashion, the art, the people and the music. It was also a time I did a lot of self-reflection on all the different experiences and how they shaped the woman that I evolved to. Life sometimes takes you in different directions then what you had planned.
