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!
