happy birthday to me



I am thirty today.

Thirty! It's kind of a big number, don't you think? I am officially middle-aged -no longer a "twenty-something." My friend Megan reminded me that I am, "Thirty, Flirty, and Thriving" and I've heard from many women that their thirties were hands down their favorite time of life -too old to be young, but too young to be old- they say it's a great place to be! And I've gotta say: I'm lookin' forward to it!

Hubby made me some pancakes this morning, gluten-free ones that actually taste good!  With breakfast he gave me a card with a love note & flowers & a gift I love. I got to wear my new sundress, which is pretty happy -don't you think? After church Hubby made some fish tacos (yum) and we sat in the lawn chairs and watched the Little Pirate play in the kitty-pool, happy as can be. I've gotten texts and calls with birthday wishes from friends and I'm feeling awfully loved & a little lot spoiled. 

Life is so, so good.

And in other news...

Due to the evacuation, and the time on vacation -I am actually looking forward to doing all my house chores tomorrow. If that isn't proof I've had a pretty good summer so far, I don't know what is!
