3 more sleeps

In three sleeps I will officially be a grown up. How's that you ask? Aren't I a college graduate? Haven't I been married for almost 8 years? Haven't I attended my 10th high school reunion? Don't I have 3 precious children and drive a minivan? Yes, yes and yes to all of the above.

But on Sunday, Septemeber 16th, 2007 I will be THIRTY years old. 3-0. A new decade. A new grouping when I fill out forms. A new age category in the half marathon results. Oh my.

Do you know that Alan Jackson song "Remember When"? There is a line where he says 'Remember when 30 seemed so old. Looking back its just a stepping stone.' I know he is right yet it seems incredible that I am 30. I feel 22. I thought that was old when I was marrying Mr. Brick. Or maybe 25, like when I had #1. But nope.......its really here..........the big 3-0.

Happy early birthday to me. And yes, I will quit my belly-aching now ;)

Happy Thursday~

30's the new 20 so no worries, your feelings are justified. I love you and am glad you're going before me into this decade so I have a hand to hold:-)
Love you and miss you, S.

A hearty welcome to the 30-plus crowd. I'm staring 35 in the face myself, ugh!
Love,

I would give ANYTHING to be 30 again! I was about 20 lbs lighter! Really, 30 is the new 16!

Happy early b-day! 30 can be a hard one, it really does feel like saying adios to one's youth. But the older I get (almost 35 - ack) I try to stay thankful for each day I'm given. Hope your day is great!!!

I heard it said once that if 30 is hard, 40 will be a breeze. I don't know if that's true... yet!
