Today is my 30th birthday! Eric and I both took the day off work and we’re going to spend it together (Rooney is going to day care) – we’re going out for breakfast to a new-to-us bakery, hitting up some shops, seeing a movie in the theater, having an afternoon treat, and then picking Rooney up from day care and going out to dinner as a family. It is sure to be a great day!
I’ve looked forward to this — my GOLDEN birthday — for years! I always said I’d go to Vegas for it, but honestly, I’m not sure I would have much fun out there. Eric and I went to Minneapolis a couple weekends ago to celebrate with our friends Joa and Andy and had a really good time (short recap of that here). Then, this past weekend, my parents came down to hang out with us (and watch Rooney while we attended a wedding).
Since my birthday is the last day of September, I always like to celebrate the entire month, and Eric surprised me this year with my very own website to count down the 30 days! There was a message from one of my family/friends each day when I woke up, which was such a joy for me! I’m so lucky at age 30 to have a wonderful husband, a sweet and sassy daughter, a beautiful home, a job I love, and strong support from family and friends.
