Good Bye Thirties

In a little less than an hour, I will be a 40 year old.

My 30's were A-MAZ-ING.

I had two gorgeous baby girls and watching them grow has given me more joy than I ever thought possible. (although Olivia was born a few months before I turned 30).

I finished my Bachelor's degree.

I finished my Master's Degree.

I moved into my dream house.

I made friends.

And lost a few.

I held a friend's hand as she gave birth to her precious baby boy.

And held another friend's hand as she gave birth to her unborn daughter who went with God.

I gained confidence in myself.

And humility.

I realized that the good things in life aren't always what I thought they would be.

I saw a growth in my marriage that convinced me we will be together forever.

My 30's were the best times of my life.

My 30's were the happiest time of my life - warts and all.

I became an adult in my 30's.

I grew up.

Bring it on 40's.

I'm ready.
