Not sure how I got here

So . . .

Today's my birthday. . .

I'm thirty.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. {Not that I really have a choice}.

I'm not really upset about turning 30. More like, I can't figure out how I got here so quickly. Perplexed. That's the word. Okay, and maybe a little sad. Not because I think I'm old or anything. No. It's just . . . my twenties were so momentous, I'm sad to give them up. I got married to my best friend when I was 21, became a Mama at 22, had my second daughter at 24, bought our very own home and 20 acres of gorgeous land at 25, gave birth to an honest to goodness miracle baby at 28, and started building our dream home at 29. How do ya top all that?

Anyway.

Just thought y'all should know that you're not in the presence of a twenty-something anymore. Can you handle it? ;)

Happy Birthday! You are as young as you feel... 30 wasn't bad for me. I thought turning 40 was going to be rough, but it really wasn't. Now when I hit 50... that may be. I still feel like I'm fresh out of school at 43.

Happy Birthday!!!! It does sound your 20s were amazing! But, now that all of those things have happened you can certainly make your 30's even better by what you do with your family and your new awesome house!

Happy Birthday!!! It is strange isn't it, turning 30. I still feel like I am 20 something, and I am 32! I guess we are only as old as we feel! I hope you have a blessed day!

Happy Birthday! Your 20's sound great but with those beautiful kiddos and a new house I'm sure the 30's will be perfect. I hope you have a great day!

Happy Birthday Liz! Your 20's sound fabulous but do not worries, the 30's are when you come into your own. :)

Happy Birthday gorgeous lady! I have to say, your 20's sound like my 30's! Although I did get married at 27, and we did buy our first house at 28 - but no kids until 31. You're lucky to have had your family young - you can spend your 30's raising them, and then by your 40's, you'll be able to REALLY have fun! Whereas I'm turning 40 still changing diapers...well I do have 4 months left to hopefully end THAT practice :)

Welcome to the club Liz! So far so good :)

Girl you are a baby to me. Happy Birthday. 30 is good. You have accomplished so much in your short years. You are blessed.

Kelli said...

Happy Birthday...I hope your day was all you hoped it to be! The 30 years are the best!

Jenny said...

Happy Birthday! It felt strange when I turned 30 in December, but now I'm 30 1/2 and it doesn't bother me anymore. LOL!

Just think of all of the awesome things that will happen in your 30's!

Kristen said...

Well, as having been 30 for almost a month, I can say it's not that bad. ;) haha. It has been so fun to get to "know" you, and looking forward to much more. :) Hope your day was special!!
