My 30th Birthday







Okay, it is official. I am thirty. It has been one month of pure celebration. The beginning of my birthday celebration started with a surprise birthday party from my amazing friends, especially my best friend Stephanie. It is funny at 30 to have a "best friend" but yes we have been "best friends" since we were 14, so I think it is still okay to use this term. It was so wonderful to have all the people you care about to come and celebrate this "big" birthday! During my birthday celebration my husband surprised me with a bottle of wine. After being a little confused about why he bought me bottle of wine. Don't get me wrong, I love wine but for my birthday it is sort of like receiving a vaccuum cleaner. You need it but do you want it for a present? After I finally read the bottle, it said "Hope you enjoy this wine. It is just a sample of the wine we will be tasting on our trip to San Francisco/Napa." What another great surprise! I have always dreamed of going and it was even more amazing that I could have imagined. I don't think words can describe the beauty of the place. My birthday celebration continues as my mother and sister are now here visiting from Texas. It is so great to have family around. I am one of those weird people that love to have my family around me all the time. My parents bought me a ticket to England to visit my sister for my birthday present. I guess my birthday isn't over yet! If turning 30 is this good, I can't wait until 40!
