Have you guys seen 13 Going on 30? Jennifer Garner's character is a 13 year old girl who on her birthday wishes to be '30, flirty and thriving.' That line always makes me laugh. My step kids asked me on Christmas how I feel about turning 30. I think I'm officially grown up, because really, it just feels like another number. I feel satisfied that I accomplished many of my goals: I completed my Masters Degree and counseling credential. I have a rewarding career that I'll return to at some point. I am blessed with a beautiful family. My life is full. We also laughed when I reminded them that by marrying their father, I'll always feel young. Or younger.
I turned 30 New Years Day. NYE Mike and I went out for dinner and drinks with some of our favorite friend's, Crystal and Andy. We spent New Year's day with a few friend's and family at my parents house (thanks Mom, Dad and Judie!). Although most of my time is spent with my babies building train tracks with applesauce in my hair, I'd still say I feel '30, flirty, and thriving.' I don't know how I'll feel about 40, but 30 is just fine.
