Today is my 35th birthday. Some people throw a party, some go out to dinner. Me? I book myself a two week trip to Thailand! I just got back and I am slowly getting used to the time change and catching up on sleep after a 40 hour journey home. I am so proud of myself for navigating (solo) my first Asian country. I rode an elephant, pet tigers, and managed to eat relatively safely throughout my entire trip. I have so much to catch up on but I thought I would share a few of my favorite photos from my vacation. It really was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I am so glad that I went to Thailand. It was the best birthday present ever!

BEST DAY EVER!!
I seriously loved every minute of riding the elephants. That was the highlight of my entire trip.
