Did you know that on my 28th birthday we landed in the Philippines and began this somewhat ridiculous and always adventurous life abroad?
On my 29th birthday I was was lucky enough to be on the Great Wall of China which is still to date the most amazing place I have ever been.
I had expected something as spectacular and unique on my big 30th, but instead I am pregnant. VERY pregnant and I can say this is as amazing as it can get, the miracle of life.
On the way to school this morning.
Holden: "Mom, is your birthday today or tomorrow?"
Me: "It's tomorrow. Do you know how old Mommy is going to be tomorrow?"
Holden: "Um, 16?"
Me: beaming, "Nope."
Me: "Uh...nope. I will be 30!"
Holden: "Huh, is 30 older than 100?"
Me: "No Holden, 30 is much much less than 100."
Ah...so here I stand on the cusp of 30 welcoming it w ith open arms!
This is just one of the ways I celebrated 30. Nothing better than good food and kind and thoughtful friends!
