Thirty, Flirty, and Thriving

Today is a big day for me. Today is the day that I say sayonara to my twenties and hello to my thirties.

It feels really strange to be in a new age bracket and yet I still feel the same. I still feel like the 17 year old who graduated high school. And the 19 year old who got married. And the 23 year old who ran a marathon. And the 26 year old who left Oregon and moved to Tennessee. Time passes by so quickly I can’t really believe that I’m here already! Now I am the 30 year old wife of 10.5 years. And the 30 year old aunt, daughter, sister. And the 30 year old small business owner. And the 30 year old blogger. :)

I thought it would be much harder to hit this milestone than it actually has been. I think 29 was a harder year to process than 30 has been so far. For practically the whole year I’ve been thinking of myself as 30 so now that I finally am, it doesn’t seem so old! Now I’m in my early thirties instead of my late twenties. I’m not an old 20 something, I’m a young 30 something :) I like that a whole lot better. And besides, no matter how old I get I will never catch up to my much older husband who is 33. He will always be older than me. Hey, it’s all about perspective, right?! Besides, these first 30 years have been really, really great. I hope the next 30 years are as well. I will leave you with a picture of Jason and I taken just a couple of weeks ago. Please, no comments about how old I look :) haha
