tomorrow, i turn 30. whether i like it or not (and currently i am not 30’s biggest fan). 30 is a mix of emotions. it’s the least excited i’ve been to have a birthday ever. it’s not really that i’m upset about getting old, although i do remember a time that i thought 30 would be cause for a mid-life crisis. now that i’m staring it in the face, 30 doesn’t feel old at all (well, at least not old enough to warrant a crisis). it does, however, seem like a good time for some reflection on the last 30 years, which i will not subject you to here. but as i process through turning 30 tomorrow, i realize how blessed i am to have so many amazing people to do life with. the weekend ahead will be full of celebrating with lots of those people. it will be full of laughter, food, fun, and birthday cake (oh, the cake!). memories will be made, and 30 will come whether i like it or not. so, in honor of my 30th, here’s a picture from possibly the most awkward time of my life (thanks, kayla). here’s hoping that the next 30 years will be kinder in the hair-do department.
