Musings on the Big 3-0
For years I had planned on getting Botox and having some sort of aesthetician tell me exactly what I need to do to make my skin look youthful forever. (Yes, I am that vain). However, now that the big 3-0 is finally here, I find that I am much less interested in preventing smile lines (because, after all, they seem pretty well earned, and I am terribly afraid of looking like a "Real Housewife") and much more interested in thinking about what really matters to me in my life.
So here's what I really want for my 30th birthday this year.
A financial advisor. The kind you see in the commercials, who lets you dream about the summer house you want to own one day and then works with you to figure out how to make that dream come true. Who is willing to help me (finally!) transfer my old job's 401k into the appropriate account. Who can tell me whether or not I should invest in a Roth IRA or pay off my mortgage a little faster.
And the second thing I want? A wall like one of these:
So I am on the hunt for vintage frames. Round ones, square ones, thick ones, thin ones, black ones and gold ones in all shapes, sizes and conditions. I want to collect them over the coming year, and then create a wall- a space- that I really love.
