30 Years Old!

It’s here! The day I finally turn the big 3-0! So many people I know dreaded turning 30, but me…I’m like totally stoked! I’m actually really looking forward to this whole new decade! I love where I am at in life! I love the possibilities, opportunities and adventures that are yet to come! I love that I get to be on this whole journey of life with such an awesome husband, kids, family and friends! Plain and simple, I’m really blessed.

My 20’s were more than likely the most memorable decade I’ll ever experience in my life. So many major life events happened. So many amazing memories were made. So many incredible experiences were had – the best ones being getting married and having my beautiful 3 children!

For those of you who have been around my blog for a while you may remember that last year on my 29th birthday I wrote a post all about my 20’s to date. Well, I’ve added the last bit to sum it up: the birth of Colton!

The best part is every single thing that I’ve been through in this decade has been with/because of my wonderful husband!!

3 dogs, 3 houses, 3 kids, 7 years of marriage (in December), our love for insane traveling, renovating, crafting and not to mention all that comes with Clayton’s job as well as him being in the process of getting his MBA = busy life! There has not been a single dull moment! I’m so looking forward to the next decade being filled with just as many awesome memories!!

Here’s to being 30!!!
