And, into my 30’s I go… August 15, 2012

Wam, bam, thank you 20’s. It’s been the best decade of my life … so far, but somehow I am looking much more forward than backward.  My 20’s was the first decade away from adult supervision and, like lots of people, I felt like I had to cram the whole rest of my life into 10 short years because “30” sounded boring.  It ranged from too many late nights to earning my pilot’s license to moving to L.A..  I will still pay for some of those party years. In a lot of ways, it feels like my 20’s was like watching an albatross take off – clumsy, bumpy, and at times downright awkward.  As John says, “your 20’s are the poopy diapers and burp rag of adult life”.  I’m looking forward to my 30’s as the years when I begin to relish the yummy, simple parts of life.  I feel incredibly blessed to enter my 30’s with a wonderful husband, a gorgeous baby girl, and so much life adventure ahead of us.

So today, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to stay in and spend time together as a family.   John will cook a delicious dinner (like he does most nights) and I get to be with our sweet baby Charlotte.  Oh and Prissy will be there too vying for our attention.  So here’s to my 30’s…

Thank you, thank you to all of you that I count as my friends.  It’s a blessing to go through life with you.  Yes, it sounds melancholy, but I wouldn’t be here without you.  Just sayin’.
