Today I am 30!
Today I am 30.
Its the end of a decade and the beginning of a decade.
A bittersweet mixture of emotions.
I am very sentimental about saying goodbye to my 20’s. Its been a big season of my life.
In my 20s…
I turned 21 and discovered I have an natural ability to out drink most men ( think Karen Allen in Raiders of the Lost Ark)
I graduated from college with my BA in Psychology and a minor in business, you know, just to make it practical.
I moved to LA all by myself to pursue a dream
I brought home the worst puppy in the world, named him Boomer and proceeded to work through 2 full years of dog training in order to mold him the love of my heart that he is today. Even if I am the only one who loves him most of the time!
I found Pilates which changed my body and Yoga which changed my body image.
I laughed until I cried.
I saw God move in ways that make it impossible for me not to believe.
I succeeded on nothing but my own capabilities and merits, and got a great friend out of the deal too.
I got engaged and planned my dream wedding.
I got married!
I learned what it is to be a wife and a true partner in life, and all of the sharing that entails! I still don’t share dessert but the occasional salad and soda…I’ve come along way my friends.
I got pregnant.
I got pregnant again with our first baby due this fall.
In my 30s I will become a mother.
This and that my God will never leave me are my only two certainties of the next ten years.
Hello 30s! I hear I’m going to like you.
