There are two great days in a person’s life. The day we are born and the day we discover why.—William Barclay

This Saturday I’m turning 45. I’ve read that 45 is the new 25 or maybe it was the new black. Either way, helllooooo midlife, I’m delighted to be here!

In honor of my birthday, I’m offering 45% off my five print books—Tranquilista, Tranquilologie, Hip Tranquil Chick, 52 Weeks of Tranquility Journal, Tranquility du Jour Anthology, the October 20 Softening into Fall Virtual Retreat, and the locally-sewn, eco-friendly TranquiliT line.

Use code BIRTHDAY at checkout to save 45% off these items TODAY through 11:59pm ET on Saturday, June 30.

The birthday celebrating begins Friday with an all-day conference on growing flowers followed by a vegan dinner at Equinox and then Hamilton at The Kennedy Center.

On Saturday I’m attending a morning writing workshop, savoring afternoon high tea at The Willard complete with live harp, vegan finger sandwiches and pastries, and organic tea, and spending the evening with Tim and the pups.

Sunday begins with a ballet class and vegan brunch with a longtime girlfriend topped with an evening of hosting Year of Tranquility. A beautiful blend of the arts, learning, and savoring!

I also plan to make space to reflect on the past year (what I learned, experienced, released), review the dreams listed in my journal from last birthday’s reflection, and pen dreams to be accomplished by June 30, 2019. It’s my annual birthday ritual.

Over the year’s I’ve shared this tradition on the blog. Here’s a sampling from 2010, 2012, 2013, 2016, and 2017.

Although you may not have a birthday right now, we are mid-year and it’s a wonderful time for all of us to do an assessment. What’s working? How are things feeling? What needs tweaking? What wants attention?

Thank you for being in my life. It’s a true honor to be part of yours! x
