Now I understand why I get AARP emails...

Well, it's finally here...AARP anyone? No seriously, tomorrow is kinda a big deal....


I turn 30! AHHH! When I turned 25, I remember I had such a problem with it...nothing compared to what I've been dealing with as this birthday is staring at me...

Now, on the eve of my 30th birthday, I'm thinking, "where did time go". I definitely feel lucky, I have a great family, a warm home (always warm thanks to Kentucky weather), a driveable car, good job, WONDERFUL friends....






I'm happy to have found a hobby (or a zillion thanks to Pinterest) that I enjoy, as in writing this blog. It's taken 30 years, but I have finally learned how to fix my hair...please note this picture from Kindergarten...


I'm happy I've found a church, with church friends, that I enjoy going to each week, and so thankful that I have a relationship with God.

I know there are still a lot of things to learn...I mean we learn every day...but I think it's so important to maybe not worry so much about the outcome of things that we forget to enjoy the ride. I get swept up a lot, in everything, and I think to a certain point, that's ok. I just don't want to:

forget to breathe (like I did once in BarreAmped, #passoutanyone)forget to laugh, even at those silly inside jokes that make tears shoot from your eyes (like my coworker always has me laughing, "well, what are you going to tell him, that you're back on pop")forget to love, even though my hearts been broken a few times...

I just don't want to forget that it's all worth it. It all happens for a reason, and if you're so busy worrying...about your neighbors being loud, or that you have something in your teeth, or if your mom is going to come visit and say your house looks like a pigsty...its going to be easy to miss the really important moments that make you who you are...

As I look back on my last 30 years - definitely think that is a Tim McGraw song of some sort - I can tell that I've grown as a person. I like who I am...and I can't wait to see what the next year holds.
