Thoughts on Turning 30.....

*It's not the end of the world.

*I cried today, yes, but it was not a "my-life-is-over" cry....more like a "thank you, God, for the 30 years of life you've given me" cry.

*I still feel 20.

*I'm a WAY better scrapper than I was when I first started seriously scrapbooking in 2001-ish! :)

*I have an older sister who has gone through turning 30 and will always go through the age changes before me, so that gives me comfort and encouragement...at her expense. LOL!

*The 20s were kinda lonely. God has brought new friends and relationships into my life recently, and I'm looking forward to where they will take me in my 30s.

*I'm going to start taking vitamins and try to be healthier. For real.

*Some day, I will look back and long for the day I was 30 again.

*You're never too old to wear a "Happy Birthday" pink princess tiara and an "It's my birthday" ribbon at lunch in a public restaurant (thank you, Aaron Hall!).

*I received a TON of birthday wishes on Facebook today from friends and family. Totally made my day. :)

*So I can't wear stuff that I wore in high school and in my pre-baby days....so what! Why the heck do I still have stuff that old in my closet anyway?!

*No dating scene, no pregnancies, no unsteady job. I have a wonderful husband, 2 beautiful healthy boys, and 2 good jobs. God has provided us with so much.

*I've only just begun.

*The best is yet to come.............
