I’m looking forward to turning 29 next month. Planning how I want to celebrate led me to think about what I would give myself as a gift. I was intentional with my birthday wishlist this year, choosing an experience and a couple of things that will make me look good while achieving my goals for 2015.
1. Toms Pink Boucle Women’s Classic. I don’t often buy shoes — even when I need to. But these will serve me well during spring training and upcoming trips. The bonus is that Toms gives a pair of shoes to a child in need.
2. Athleta Floral Fade Chi Tank. I don’t ever buy yoga clothes either, though mine get quite a bit of use. This tank is both functional and pretty — perfect for teaching.
3. A trip to Chicago. I have a feeling Chicago and I would get along. I wish we could go for my actual birthday weekend, but the temperature will be in the 30s. Who leaves the 70s for the 30s? (Well, I would, but I imagine the city would be even more fun in the summer or fall.)
