A Celebration!

I’m 30! And this is my 100th blog post!

OK this post was supposed to go up on Monday, but that was my actual birthday and I decided I wanted a relaxing, quiet day with little technology so I deferred the post a day until yesterday was super hectic and I forgot about it.

So Happy Wednesday for a celebration!

I’ve never been a big fan of my personal birthday celebration- I’ve always felt like there was a weird pressure to have a great celebration or would have great expectations of big birthday happenings that did not turn out. Mainly though I don’t like the attention that birthdays bring so I’ve always just sought out my own way of celebrating and doing the things I love the most.

My parents threw a surprise party for me last Saturday night, which I really had no idea about. I took the day off Monday, slept in, and then went for a hot stone massage, which I HIGHLY recommend. I read in my sunroom with some coffee, did a little shopping, and had dinner with my family. The whole weekend was just as I wanted to ring in the new decade- spent with family and friends, surrounded by love, laughter, and excitement for all that is coming in my life.

I’ve never been more excited about turning a year older. My 20s were filled with lots of ups and downs, and I know that life is really going to happen for me in my 30s. I’m motivated to make changes in so many places in my life and have aspirations for so much more. Interestingly enough, a fellow 30 & flirty friend posted this article  about how the 30s are “do or die.” I’m not sure that I think the 30s are ‘do or die,’ but I do think  many big life things will ( or hopefully will) happen in the next decade.

And a celebration too because it’s my 100th blog post. I’ve been blogging for just about a year now and think I’m finally finding my voice a little bit more. I’m excited to continue using this space to share with the world, and so happy to have found a community of like minded folks as part of it.

And as a huge thank you to everyone for their support and reading whatever ramblings I come up with, I’m doing a small giveaway of some of my favorite things: stationary, a journal with some awesome pens, and some hot beverage items.

To enter, leave a comment or a tweet and I’ll pick a random winner on Sunday, March 10!
