“Remember when thirty seemed so old…”

Today, I am 30.  And unlike a lot of people, I’m completely okay with turning thirty.  I don’t have a perfect life, but I have a wonderful, amazingly blessed life.  I’m wife to a sweet husband who is an awesome spiritual leader, who makes me laugh all the time, and who is handsome as all get-out Winking smile I have an energetic yet sweet son who makes me laugh while he tells me about his beard and melts my heart with his I-love-you-very-very-much’s.  I have a precious brown-eyed baby girl who lights up a room with her giggle and keeps me on my toes as she crawls quick-as-a-flash from one room to the next.  I have a part-time photography business that keeps me as busy as I want to be.  I live in a great area of town, have a wonderful church, have helpful family and friends who can relate to my crazy life.  And so much more.  Thank You, Lord.


We had our small group over for dinner tonight as a little birthday celebration.  I love, love our small group.  What a godly group of men and women.  (And we definitely feel the absence of our other family who moved across the country last month!)

Ladies (and little lady):


…and the girls:


Mmmmmm, mac and cheese!


I told Jason I wanted a cookie cake.  He delivered Smile




5 great things about my twenties:

I earned 3 degrees (2 bachelors and one masters), two of which came from this great institution:


I lived in 3 towns/cities and moved 4 times (I think).

I had 2 1/2 careers: media buyer, student teacher (that’s the half!), and photographer.  Well, and stay-at-home-mom – my most thoroughly exhausting and fulfilling “career.”


I married the love of my life


and we had 2 beautiful babies!


And that is why I’m not sad about turning 30.  Based on how life is going, I expect my thirties to be even better than my twenties!  Of course, that’s not in my control, though!  I’m just grateful for everything we have.
