I turned 30 about a week ago. In my book, that's my first milestone birthday. In other people's books, I'm still a youngin'. Either way, 30 officially marks the first time I feel a little bit old. I've been out of college for many more years that I was in it. I've got a kid, and a mortgage payment. I pay attention when people talk about my taxes going up and I recently learned what an escrow is. You see? I'm old.
Despite all of the ways turning 30 makes me feel old, I LOVE it! With age comes lots of learning and hopefully a little bit of wisdom. I love the people who surround me and the things I'm involved in.
I have a good life.
And, I had a great 30th birthday weekend! I spent the day with my, husband, daughter, parents, and grandparents. My hubby made my very favorite chocolate turtle cake from Cafe Latte of which I ate more than my fair share. He also bought me a beautiful new vase made by the very talented Abble Lingle. Caribou gave me a free cup coffee - YUM. I took a trip to Darn Knit Anyway where I stalked up on some lovely new yarn for upcoming projects. The season premier of Downton Abbey was on.
I think 30th birthday weekends should happen more often.
So...here's to another great decade full of life, love, and wonderful things...
