Birthday Season and my 30th!

We call March and April birthday season for my family because we start March 9th and go until April 20th with 8 birthdays in-between! It's busy and it gets expensive, but I love getting the whole family together so frequently. This year we got together for pizza and cake for Matthew's birthday at Amy's house and then celebrated Keith's birthday at Mom's house. Me, mom, dad are just a few days apart so we celebrated all three birthdays this past Sunday at my house. Amy and I split the responsibilities and everything went wonderfully.

On Saturday I turned 30...I know I'm still kind of in shock myself! I spent the weekend hanging out with the kids, getting a little pampered and then spent the evening with my amazing sister! Noah was out of town so it was a quiet weekend, but it was wonderful. It's crazy to think that I'm not in my twenties anymore and I have joked plenty about being sad about being so old. In all seriousness though I am excited to turn 30. I'm so very blessed to have such an amazing family, great friends, and a good job. I am proud of where I am in life and what we have been able to accomplish. I know who I am now and I am the person I want to be. I'm happy and content but not complacent. I'm very for all of the adventures and challenges that this decade is sure to bring!!

My students always make me feel special. They might drive me crazy but I love them!
