The Big 3-0!

Well- I finally hit this milestone.  I didn't think I would ever be this old, but here it is.  I don't feel like I'm 30, not yet, anyways.  I told myself I wasn't going to get down because of the number.  Instead, I decided to look at all of the positive things, the blessings, and the accomplishments in my life.  I decided that over-all, I'm extremely happy with where I'm at!

I have a wonderful husband, and a happy marriage.
2 beautiful children, and one on the way!
We have a home that is perfect for our family, in the country, and on 5 acres. 
We have a cabin, on the lake, and through this cabin we have met the best friends we could ever ask for.  All kinds of them!
My job.  I love it.  I have an established career in the field I always dreamed of. 

I can't be sad about the number of years, I need to be happy for where I am at.  Things I've always dreamed of- having a great husband, happy, healthy kids, a home in the country, a cabin on the lake, a job as a teacher, our health, wonderful family and friends.  I've got it- and I thank God for the blessings he has given us!

Yes, I'm one more year older and wiser- and onto another year.  This one is sure to be an exciting one!  There is a family wedding right around the corner, a baby joining our little family, and another exciting vacation all on the agenda- I can't wait to see how the year unfolds!  It is sure to be an exciting one!

We went out for an amazing seafood dinner with friends the Friday night before my birthday.  It was delicious, and we left so full we could hardly stand it!  Crab legs, shrimp, scallops, Mmmmm.  I wanted to spend my birthday at home with nothing on the agenda but church.  We came home and had a quiet cozy day.  It was perfect.  For dinner that night Chad and the Littles threw together the most amazing birthday dinner filled with all of my favorite things!  It was perfect and made with love!

 Crockpot potatoes:

This dinner was the perfect ending to a quiet, family day, and I am ready to bring on another year!
