Happy birthday, Liz!

Our founder, Liz Lidgett, is celebrating her birthday Friday, August 31! So we asked Liz how she plans to celebrate and what she has planned for the year ahead …

Do you have any birthday traditions?

Birthdays are big in our family. Since my birthday is the last day of the month, I feel like it’s important to celebrate the whole darn month. My best tradition, beyond making a point to be with friends and family, is creating my birthday year goals.

Do you have any big plans or goals for this next year?

Oh yes. For some reason, new year’s resolutions have never really resonated with me. I spend the month of August thinking and scheming about my next year ahead. Then the week of my birthday, I write a series of goals that will help me get to where I want to go. I am a big believer in writing your goals out and placing them somewhere you see them each day. I place them inside my closet so I see them each morning while I am getting ready. This year I am adding an intention that I will say aloud every morning that goes with each goal.

33 feels like a big year to me. Maybe it’s that I am a mother now, maybe it’s that I am working towards the next big thing in my career and this company. My goals this year center around “things adults do…” So these are things like adults have a signature dish. I am not a great cook but I think I can nail one dish really well. I am thinking, handmade noodles?

How can we help you celebrate your birthday?
