.last day I get to say I'm twenty-something.

Well, friends. It's official. Today is the last day I get to ever tell anyone that 'I am twenty-something years old'. Wow. Tomorrow I will be 30.  
And to be completely honest, I've been feeling a little sad about it. My twenties where filled with some pretty wonderful events and I'm left feeling reminiscent. And maybe a little older. 
So today I want to close this door on my twenties and say farewell. I want to remember all the good things my twenties brought and all the growing up that I've done. I have had so many wonderful memories and it's been quite the ride thus far.
I worked on a cruise ship. It allowed me to travel almost the entire North American coast and then some.
I met my future husband.
I started my career.
I met some of my best friends to date. Local and afar.
I bought a house.
I got engaged.
I bought another house.
I planted a garden.
I got married [july 24, 2010].
I started my blog.
I adopted an old dog. Then nursed her and cared for her until she passed.
I got a promotion of sorts and moved companies.
I got pregnant.
I travelled all over Europe. And Mexico. And Montreal. And Vegas.
I perfected my cooking and gardening skills.
I learned how to be a wife.
I reevaluated my life & I am finding out what matters most to me. 
Finding out who matter the most to me.
And most importantly, Finding out who I am.

So good-bye twenties because now that I think of it, I have a hell of a lot more living to do in my Thirties. And you know what. I am damn excited about that.
Because already my thirties look to be shaping up into something great.
My sexy husband & our little babe. You are already making my thirties pretty darn awesome.

Now, excuse me while I go celebrate turning thirty with some pretty darn wonderful people and a weekend full of birthday events. xoxo
