The Big 3-0

Today is my 30th birthday!  And while some people might dress all in black and sulk around pretending that it wasn't happening, I'm embracing the day & excited because really it's just another day.  But this another day is meant to spend with my family & friends, another day (or two or three or a week) with an excuse to eat some yummy food, and another day to hopefully open some fun presents!
People have asked me if 30 is going to bother me, and honestly, it's not.  I'm so excited about what my 30s are going to bring.  I feel like I'm finally living the life that was meant for me all along and that all these years before have just been in preparation for what my 30s are going to bring.  I have an incredible husband, a precious baby girl, a great job working for my family, and the best family a girl could ever ask for.
It's as if I've finally arrived and life is just pretty awesome.  I recognize that all of that could change in an instant, so I'm going to do my best to soak in every moment & take to heart all of the responsibility that has been given me as a wife & mom.  We are such an incredibly blessed family, and it's my desire to be a good steward of all that God has given us. Because as it is written, "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked," (Luke 12:48)  

So let's go 30s...I can't wait to see what's in store!

I felt the same way about turning 30 - like I was finally comfortable in my own skin and knew who I was.

Hope you're 30's rock Lauren!

Happy Birthday!

Happy 'belated' birthday!!! I love my 30's (I'm getting close to being halfway through mine though..yikes!!)..I feel more 'established' in myself now if that makes sense!!
