OH NO....It's the big 30!!!

It is that time of year. We have a whole month to remember, reflect and celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, spend time with family and friends, and do service for others. It is also that dreaded time of year for me. It's time for another birthday.

I am torn this year, more than others. I am happy to have a day to celebrate ME, but at the same time, I am feeling a little down and out about it. Three years ago Logan got a very pricey speeding ticket on my birthday and last year he was laid off. *Knock on wood, fingers, toes, arms AND legs crossed, and praying that neither happen this year.* And then I remember that when I was younger I always had a goal to be a stay at home mom with at least two or more children by the time I was 30. I could picture it so clearly in my head. And here I am, living the clouded picture of my day to day life, ready to turn 30 years old, and it is nothing like I had imagined it would be. Then come rushing back the flood of feelings and emotions I have been feeling over the past few years and I just get even more down and out.

I would love to have a get together or a huge party with friends and family. But my birthday is so close to Christmas, and most people are out of town. I would hate to ask those friends that are in town to take time away from their family and Christmas festivities. What to do, what to do?!?!

Screw it! Either way, I am going to CELEBRATE and I would love to celebrate it in style. (BTW - I love LOVE LOVE this glass! I am partial to anything Zebra print! It is a fruit punch/water glass, right!) So who is going to join me?!?

If anything, I will just become one of those women that turns 27 years old eight consecutive years in a row! Whatever your plans this Christmas season, I hope everyone has a very safe and Merry Christmas. And always remember the true meaning of Christmas!

Per the request of Chelsey, Christmas decoration pictures will be posted soon. And there will be another post someday soon about a new job!
