I’m in My 30s. What Now?

I finally hit my 30s in JUNE

For the longest, I heard that the “30s are the best years!” And so on, so here we go!  Hubby took me to Vegas and we had a blast just the two of us  (will write another blog post).

It took a while to settle in, so I took my time writing this blog post. But after hearing my 4-year-old tell everyone and anyone, “My mom is thirty!” I think it finally sunk in.  Haha


 I would like to believe I have done quite well for myself. As a reminder of how grateful I am to be here and to remind myself that 30 is just a number, I’m going to try and list 30 things I am proud of or grateful for. Some are siilly. Some are funny. Some are serious. Read on!

1. I am blessed to be married to my best friend and love of my life.
