Recent snapshots: my 35th birthday

This year my birthday was rather low-key and that was just fine with me. For the past six years, D and I have taken trips to the beach for my birthday weekend, but now that we live at the beach all we have to do is drive 10 minutes until we hit sand. So that's what we did.

Since it was my first week back at work after maternity leave, I spent the day working (and dusting the cobwebs off of my brain) and then we headed to the beach in the evening. I went for a run while Baby B and D sat on the beach and when I was done running, I joined them. Pretty relaxing, nothing fancy and just what I needed.

And later in the week, I headed off to my wonderful stylist at Grace Salon Spa and got some purple streaks in my hair, because why not?

Overall, a good way to usher in 35.
