Reality star Kristin Cavallari celebrated her 34th birthday with a toast to her new life.
The Uncommon James founder shared a gorgeous black and white photo to her Instagram page that showed her aglow with a candlelit dessert and a glass of champagne as she rang in her new year at a restaurant.
In the caption to the post, which was shared nine months after her split from her husband Jay Cutler, the mom of three acknowledged that her past year has been a “crazy” one that included ups and downs and highs and lows.
But despite her divorce and the decision to end her E! reality show, Very Cavallari, Kristin shared a surprising revelation about 2020.
“I can honestly say it was one [of ] the best years of my life,” she wrote. “Lots of growth and opportunity. I feel like I’m back to my old self and it feels really damn good. This is 34.”
