30 and thrilled

in Becoming Myself, Celebrations

Today is my 30th birthday!

It definitely will be a low-key affair today. No big blow out parties for me to mark a new decade—heck, I don’t even get to have a drink to celebrate! Instead, I’m getting a manicure and a pedicure, going to have a nice dinner, and have been offered baked goods to round out my day. Oh, and I got to sleep in this morning (meaning, both the cat and the kid allowed me to sleep instead of their normal disco on and in my belly at 6:30am)! It may not be a big affair, but seems like the perfect way to usher in my 30’s.

It’s weird to me that I’m 30. Not bad–I’ve never really gotten caught up in the number–more just weird. Since I still feel at times like I’m the same person I was at 16, it’s sometimes hard to recognize that I’m definitely getting older. Of course, other days I’d swear I was closer to 45 than my actual age. Maybe that’s why I’ve never really cared about the number–I’ve always sort of acted older than my age, and I sort of feel like I’m finally catching up to myself.  Whatever the case, I think my 30’s are going to be good to me (not that my 20’s weren’t). Here’s hoping!

I’m excited to see what the next decade of my life looks like. When I turned 20, I would never have guessed that I’d move to New York, or marry the guy I was dating at the time, or make myself a decent career in marketing of all things. So I can’t wait to see what my 30’s bring me–what changes in my life are yet to come. It’s exciting to think about!

So bring on the 30’s–let’s see what’s to come.
