This Tuesday I turn 30. The big 3-0. I remember watching the episode of Friends where Rachel turns 30 years ago and thinking, “Wow, I can’t even imagine what that will be like.” Well, it’s here.
Oddly enough, I’m OK with it. I have a job I love, I’m married to my best friend (going on 5 years!), I’m surrounded by amazing family and friends (who threw me a surprise party last night) and, of course, I’ve got the three most adorable fur babies in the entire world. Not a bad place to be going on 30.
The best part about turning 30 is putting my 20s behind me. Don’t get me wrong, some of the best times of my life have happened in my 20s, but I also feel like I’ve grown so much the past 10 years. I’m sure in 5 years I’ll look back and laugh at how much I’ve grown since turning 30, but such is life.
All in all, I’m welcoming 30 with open arms. I am so happy with everything and everyone in my life and can’t wait to see what the next year brings. Besides, 30 is the new 20.
