30 years. Has it really been that long??

Today I celebrated my 30th birthday. It’s hard to believe I’ve been alive for 30 years already now. Sheesh! That sounds like soooo long to me.
But then when I think about the things that I’ve accomplished in my life thus far, it feels about right. I’m pretty darn happy with where I am today. :)

I had a really great birthday. After we went to Ava’s Music Together class this morning, Jody took us out to brunch at one of my favorite restaurants – Lucille’s Creole Cafe. Then it was off to the spa at a swanky hotel for an 80 minute massage that Jody booked for me as my birthday present. That was fabulous and very much needed after I spent a lot of the day yesterday hoeing up our backyard in preparation for the sod we’re going to plant. After the massage, we went home for a bit, and then out to dinner to an Italian restaurant in town. I got some tiramisu to take home and Jody sang to me and Ava helped blow out my candle. :)

Not a bad way to ring in the new decade if you ask me. ;)

(Side note: I have a few things on my mind to write about lately, but no time to write. Hopefully I’ll be able to catch up on my thoughts this coming week.)
