the big three-oh

Well I had a birthday last week.  It was a big one.  I turned 30.  Now, having a birthday in January doesn’t give me a lot of time to dwell on it, so it tends to come and go without too much notice.  This year we celebrated with friends over a home-cooked meal and a bottle of wine while our girls wreaked havoc on their moving boxes in the next room.

It’s amazing how much has changed in the past 5 years (nonetheless 10!) … I’ll spare you all the gritty details of my past, but it elates me to say that I am now, the happiest I’ve been in my life.  This year, Chris and I will be celebrating 5 years together (and close to 15 of serious crushing) and our munchkin’s 3rd birthday.    Definitely good things too look forward to.

note: I feel I should clarify that I seemed to be the only one who forgot about my birthday.  I received lots of calls and well wishing messages that day (and even a beautiful hand made cable knit beret in the mail).
