Today is my 30th birthday(what would a "My Life at Thirty blog be without a post on the actual 30th birthday, right?). Like others have said before me, I don't really feel any different. Well, I don't feel older, I guess is a better way of saying it. I do feel different. It's been a big year for me. I completely changed my life as far as health and fitness goes. I've lost 47 pounds, and so I guess physically, I feel younger than I did this time last year. I also re-connected with an old friend, and now, a year later, I'm closer with her than I am with anyone. So, when I thought about how I wanted to spend my birthday, my only answer was, I just wanted to hang out with her.

See, my birthday in years past has truly been a dreaded day for me. I just haven't enjoyed it. I have been for years one of those that say, "eh, it's just another day." But this was my 30th. A milestone, if you will. The day that I leave those awful 20's behind me and really begin a new chapter. And to start this new chapter, the only way it seemed right, was to spend it with one of my most favorite people. And that's just what I did. I cherish every time we get to hang out, and whether we are going to Beer Heaven (lol), catching a movie, messing up the same phrase exactly the same way, at the same time, or just hanging out at home, I don't really care(it's the quality of the time, not the quantity, right?). We did all of those this weekend, and it's probably the best gift anyone has ever given me, and I wouldn't change a thing. Well, there was one thing I'd change(my stupidity there), but other than that one part, it really was the best birthday I've ever had.

So, here's to the next decade...let's see where it takes us. I have a feeling it's going to be a blast! :o)
