This past year has brought a lot of changes for the Carter family—and Beyoncé’s birthday Instagram post shows just how amazing it was. The performer-icon-mama recently celebrated the big 3-7 and opened up about what her thirty-sixth year meant for her and her growing family.

At 36, I became a new mother of 3. I breastfed twins. I renewed my vows with my husband of ten years. I came back home to the stage to do Coachella, after pregnancy. Then my husband and I released our album together, Everything Is Love. And we’ve been touring with our family around the world, and loving it. This year has been monumental for me. I thank God for everyone in my life. Thank you for all the positivity and for the beautiful birthday wishes. I’m looking forward to continuing to learn from my past, living in the present, and surrendering to the future. I love you, Hive. B
Oh, but that wasn’t all that Beyoncé’s thirty-sixth year brought. As if having twins, renewing marriage vows and performing at a major music festival isn’t enough, the post went on to read, “Then my husband and I released our album together, Everything is Love. And we’ve been touring with our family around the world, and loving it.”
Beyoncé also posted a few other beautiful birthday pics, including a cake that read, “Happy BDay Mrs. Carter.”
