The Big 3-0

It was inevitably going to happen. Turning 30, that is. I think the reason this was somewhat dreaded is that I understand how fast time goes by. Now that I know how fast the past ten years went, I know I am going to blink and be turning 40. So, I guess I'll just keep my eyes wide open for the next decade.

I figured today would be pretty normal. For everyone else it is Halloween, or a beautiful fall day, or Reformation Day. So, I thought I would quietly pass through my 30th birthday, working through being a year older and having unmet expectations in life on my own. But it wasn't like that at all. Instead, my day was so great that I hardly noticed that I entered a new decade!

You know what made this birthday so great (besides the incredible fall color and our waitress thinking I was only 22)? People. I'm so glad to have people in my life. From a 6am coffee surprise, to lots of texts and messages, to an overflowing mailbox of cards, to unexpected gifts - people showed me their love and their care. And it meant A. LOT. I'm so thankful we don't have to go through life alone.

So here I go into a new decade of life. I can't imagine what the next ten years will bring, but I'm sure it will fly by faster than the last ten!

And now all of the sudden I'm really sad Ransom won't be around when I turn 40...
