Beyoncé is taking the time to look back over the past year with gratitude, utilizing her personal website to say thank you to fans for wishing her a happy 37th birthday on Sept 4.

In the brief note dedicated to her beloved Beyhive, the queen shares a few highlights from her life at 36 while “surrendering to the future” and all it has to offer.

“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.”

The superstar also shared never-before-seen photos from the past year and pics from her birthday trip to Italy with hubby, JAY-Z. Check out those photos below, and don’t forget to swipe!
