Turning the Big 3-0

Last Saturday (July 20, 2013) I crossed the line from hopeful 20-something to depressed 30 year old.

I have now been the BIG 3-0 for exactly 1 week and I do have to admit that I don’t really feel any different. I don’t know what I was expecting though; maybe I thought I had some kind of expiration date or countdown timer. Did I think I was going to explode at midnight or something? I’m happy to report that I’m still alive.

I went to sushi with friends followed by drinks (lots of them) at our house. Jess made strawberry jello shots in actual strawberries. Deliciously intoxicating! I’m not much of a drinker, honestly, but I consumed enough rum & coke that night to successfully sail into my 30’s without even realizing it. Come to think of it, I don’t recall much about the rest of that night – haha! If you have to turn a scary age, I highly recommend being in a daze for it.

Having a Rolo ice cream cake from DQ certainly helps too! Mmmmmm.

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes on Facebook, Twitter and in person. I’m lucky to have so many great people in my life.
