Desiree Siegfried Celebrates Her 35th Birthday by Sharing Powerful Life Lessons
A major milestone! To celebrate her 35th birthday on Thursday, Desiree Siegfried looked back on all that she’s learned over the past decade in a ruminative Instagram post.
“This is 35,” the former Bachelorette captioned a gorgeous photo of herself sporting a white dress and a bright smile. “A lot like 25 but with…far more wrinkles, far more confidence, far more JOY, far more love, far more gratitude, far more wisdom, far more lessons learned.”
Referencing Gen Z’s distaste for certain millennial trends, Desiree jokingly added, “Far more appreciation for side parts and skinny jeans.”
Desiree also noted that, at 35, she has “far more grace and a whole lot more memories.”
The franchise star also provided encouraging words for Bachelor Nation. “If there’s anything I learned in the past year, or even 10 years, it’s to find joy in the mundane, find peace in the unknown, find love in the pain, find worth and acceptance in yourself, and to never go a day without smiling!” she wrote. “Love you all for being my social friends I get to celebrate birthdays with.”
“I hope you got your pre-order in of my memoir #theRoadtoRoses (actually that would be the best bday gift yet!)” wrote the wedding dress designer, who married her final rose recipient, Chris Siegfried, in 2015, nearly two years after falling in love on “The Bachelorette” Season 9.
The mom of two — who shares sons Asher, 4, and Zander, 2, with Chris — elaborated, “Because I go into the nitty gritty of how those past 10 years shaped my life, my hope, my faith and my perseverance to discover a life filled with JOY!”
Happy birthday, Desiree! See her entire post below.
