I turned the Big 3-0 a couple weeks ago. Leading up to the day, people kept asking me how I felt about it. Such a big birthday…was I sad? I honestly hadn’t even thought about it. Birthdays never have been a huge deal to me. I mean, who doesn’t love gifts and cake, but I’m not one to go all out with celebrating, so I just didn’t give it much thought.
Thinking back on the last 30 years is crazy. 30 definitely sounds “older.” But I think about all I’ve done in those 30 years and it’s pretty incredible actually. I had an amazing childhood with two parents who love me more than I deserve, a brother and a sister that are more like friends, I’ve been married for over 6 years to the love of my life, I’ve traveled to Ireland, England, St. Lucia, Mexico, and Jamaica, I’ve given birth to two precious little boys and I have a job that I enjoy and friends who make my world go round. Is my life perfect? Far from it, but it’s a GOOD life. So am I sad to have turned 30? Not at all. If the next 30 years is anything like the last, I will be one lucky girl.
So after a long day of work on Friday, March 10th, Robbie and the boys took me out for supper and we ended the night with a huge surprise party that Robbie threw for me and had been planning for weeks and weeks! It was SO fun seeing so many family and friends there. I really couldn’t believe how much thought he put into all of it and it really was so sweet.
My sister and her boyfriend were there earlier in the night and I am really bummed we missed them for the picture!
These two are my people. My life would really not be the same without them!
