Turning the Age I've Always Wanted to Be

It makes sense that today I turn 30. Married for a few years, 2 kids, a home, a little family. It's what I would have hoped 30 would look like. 

Truth be told I've been looking forward to turning 30 since at least high school. I always believed with 30 would come a form of confidence that isn't fully embraced in your twenties.  I find that to be true today. There's a greater sense of knowing who I am, who I want to be, and what I can confidently say "no" to. 

A product of the 90's I can't help but think of Tim Mcgraw's song "in my next 30 years". When the song came out I thought Tim was so old. Ha.  Now I think of those lyrics and want to tell Tim- of course I won't stay up so late, I have little kids. And yes, I do think the next 30 years will be the best years of my life- raise a little family and hang out with my (husband). 

So here's to the next 30 and a hooray for finally being the age I've always wanted to be.

  1. Me too! 30 was my favorite birthday. I waited SO long to turn 30 it seemed, and felt I had "arrived" after doing so. I hope that I feel the same way at 40. :) Love you and missed celebrating with you on your birthday. Hope you got lots of birthday snuggles from your boys.
