Oh My Gosh, I'm Turning 30!

On July 20th! I am actually not freaked out about it as all. I am so excited. Your 30's, i here are suppose to be the best years of your life. I'm excited and can't wait to celebrate the next decade of my life with my beautiful family and all the lessons i learned in the past 30 years.
I am not the kind of person that worries much about numbers. To be honest if i wasn't married with two kids i would still think i was 16. Then when i try to stay out past 11pm, i remember i'm defiantly not 16 anymore, haha. 

In the last 10 years alone so much has changed in my life. It has flown by so fast. I feel like i blinked and i had graduated high school, gone to college, met my sweetheart, graduated college, got my first job, lived with my girlfriends in the city, got engaged, got married, started a non profit call "Strike Out Juvenile Diabetes" that raised over $5,000 that was all donated to JDFR, got pregnant, delivered a baby (still blows my mind that Brad and i created a human), got pregnant again 9 months later, delivered another baby, figured out how to balance my two babies, my husband, my house, work, starting a photography company. I ran my first 10 mile race and will run the Chicago half marathon in August. I have educated myself in natural childbirth, organic food and they way they treat the animals that nourish us, i have dug deeper into my religion then i ever have before and thirst for more knowledge everyday, i have become vulnerable and feel secure about it. I have become so much more open minded and i except everyone for who they are. I believe that none of us has a place to judge anyone. I am the happiest i have ever been!  

Everyone keeps telling me i'm crazy for being excited about turning 30. I feel stronger, smarter and more confident then i ever have before, so why wouldn't i be? Wrinkles don't bother me, just means i have laughed a lot and smiled often. I've never really needed to be at a certain point to feel significant about myself or hit a goal to feel like i have accomplished something. Don't get me wrong, making goals and meeting them is something that excites me, but it's never related to age. I am happy that i am where i am right now. I don't feel like i need to be more or less then i am. I feel like i have become happier with each age of my life. So 30 doesn't seem scary to me at all. It feels right, right where i am suppose to be. So let the party begin! 


  1. This is so crazy, I was just thinking about this today because a friend of mine brought up my birthday - I turn 30 on July 24th and I am not worried about it at all either - I am excited, It is kind of surreal thinking I will be 30 but I am so ready for a new decade in life! Great post, it definately hit home with me - - -

    P.S. Happy "early" 30th birthday! Hope it is the best one yet!
