Hello, 30

Talun Zeitoun's 30th Birthday Dinner Celebration

Thirty.

It’s your twenties with money. You’re more unapologetic. There’s a newly discovered level of self value. That’s what “they’ve” been saying and, after about a week of experiencing this truly glorious new decade, I can see where “they’re” coming from. I’d be lying if I said that — while all of these traits were actually something to look forward to — I wasn’t freaking out for about six weeks ahead of the big 3-0. In fact, I didn’t even want to celebrate my 30th initially. Here’s what was going on in my head (maybe you’ll relate). I didn’t feel like there was anything to celebrate, I wasn’t where I wanted to be in life, and I didn’t achieve the goals I had set to accomplish in my 20s. I was going through it; but like a mantra, I had to constantly remind myself the lesson I learned from this post, that self-love is the strongest kind of love and to cherish it every single day. This life is a journey — nothing ends at 29 nor begins at 30 — and every moment should be celebrated with those who uplift you and support you along your path. So, that’s exactly what I did. I celebrated the journey at a milestone and I can’t thank LDV Hospitality enough for helping me realize that celebration with loved ones — including my mother who flew out from LA for the occasion — at American Cut in TriBeCa (note that they also have a location in Midtown) for a decadent, yet incredibly delicious, dinner in their private event space called The Black Room, all paired with Absolut Elyx cocktails. Take a look.
