Birthday Girl! I am officially part of the Dirty 30!

For the past year I have seen each of my friends from high school post comments regarding turning 30.  Some look at it as a bad thing.  Others seemed indifferent.  I am THRILLED at this new age.  I feel so comfortable with myself and I am surrounded by so many wonderful people.  I have an amazing husband whom I love and who loves me so much.  I have two fabulous kids who are both so smart and kind and beautiful.  I have found my voice even more than before.  I feel comfortable stating my opinion and defending my views.  I no longer feel like I must appease the masses.  I am surrounded by even more friends and I feel closer to everyone than I have before.  While there are times from my past that I would love to revisit, there isn't an age I would rather be.  This isn't to say that life is all rainbows and unicorns, we have our rough times, but I feel more capable of overcoming those times.  I feel I am a better mother, wife, daughter and sister.  Thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way.  I am proud to be 30 and look forward to all I still have to learn about myself!
