Let's get this party started.

Hello 30.
Take a seat.
Stay awhile.
I'm excited to get to know you better.

Today is my 30th birthday.

Breath in. Breathe out. 
I am 30.

Something I've been dreading for a couple of months.
Felt sorry for myself even.
*Insert self-pity blushing*

In fact.
I was feeling woe-is-me until just a couple of days ago.
Was just sure my birthday was going to get overlooked this year.
Was focused on the whole not ready to say goodbye to my 20's thing.

Until my husband swept in and shocked my socks off.
Threw the sweetest, most thoughtful little surprise party ever.
I'm still taking it all in.

I did not have a birthday.
I had a birthend.

An entire weekend dedicated to me.
A weekend that I spent with my husband.
My daughter.
My parents.
My in-laws.
My friends.

People who sure know how to make this 30 year old gal feel special.

Thanks to all who made this the best birthday I've ever had.
Made me realize all I have to be thankful for.
And all there is to look forward to.

So c'mon 30.
Hit me with your best shot.
