Happy Birthday to Me

It's my 30th birthday today. My feelings are mixed about the whole thing. However, the thoughtful gifts from friends, well wishes and cake are all helping to ease the transition quite nicely.

Back tomorrow to kick off a brand-new decade.

I am feeling perturbed by 30 and I haven't yet reached 29, so I feel ya. If I could give you an extravagant birthday gift to cheer you up it would be a night at Grantleigh Manor. :) Happy Birthday Emily!

My 30th scared me to death, but my thirties have been so much better than my twenties. I hope you can say the same in a few years.

Happy Birthday! I turned 30 on the 4th and I have to say, I *am* feeling a newfound sense of direction and ambition. Take time to reflect, but keep moving forward!

Towley - In general, it was a lot like wedding planning. The stress and worry leading up to the birthday was a bit ridiculous. The day itself was great. And the "being" is the best part.

leon and i are sorry that we didn't see you while in the city. marga showed us around your neighborhood, though. so cute!

Oh, the happiest of days to you - if it is any consolation, you are a total inspiration for how to live such a good, clean, fun and breezy life. I would love to be what you are when I turn 30, which is only 3 years away for me. You make it look good, and better yet exciting, lady!

Tania said...
