T-minus 13 Days and Counting...

Until my birthday of course. I am so looking forward to it. Can you tell? Well on the 11th I will be 30 years old, and boy oh boy I can't wait. Life is good. I feel really good about it, and can't complain. I've known people where this birthday was a little tough to bear because they feel like they haven't accomplished as much as they should have. That they aren't successful enough, or they aren't where they would have liked to have been relationship wise.

There is only one particular thing that I haven't done, that I believe should have been done by now. But I've made a conscious decision to put that one on hold for awhile. I've got a lovely family, a wonderful husband and three beautiful daughters. I've got great friends and a supportive family. I couldn't ask for more. (Well more yarn, needles and knitting books. I've posted my wish list if you'd like to wish me well :p)

Honestly, I really plan on this being one of the best years of my life. I feel as if I know enough to really call myself a grown person. I've learned a lot, and continue to do so. I don't intend to stop either. I've got a few goals specifically set for my "30 year": 1. I'm going to read more, 2. Run a half marathon 3. take my first class towards finishing my degree 4. Do 2 community service projects with my girls 5. Post at least 3 times a week here 6. Finish a "lace" project 7. Start working on my dream project- writing it all out (making it plain), finding funding for it. 8. Comment on all comments left here.

Well the time between 30 and 31 is going to be very busy, but I'm up for the challenge. Come along with me, as I embark on the beginning of the rest of my life. Every year is only going to get better. Loving life and so excited about how the next year is going to be.

Be Safe.

I just love how positive you are about 30! Let me know how the year goes since I have such a long time before I'm that old! LOL! I'm gonna be excited when my time comes also. One question... what's the one thing you would have liked done that's not done???
