My 30th Birthday!!

I can't believe I'm THIRTY years old!! Ahhhhh -Crazy I tall ya, crazy.

All I can say is that I had a complete blast and I could not have asked for a better way to celebrate. I felt so loved and blessed to have such wonderful friends to share it with me. It was just a great day!!

We celebrated my birthday at the old Holiday Skating Rink that I used to go to as not only a kid, but as a teenager too. We dressed in our best 80's fashion, (cuz I was totally born in the 80's) and skated to old-skool 80's hits, ate hot dogs and had a few adult beverages. I kept it minimal with the alcohol, because of the fertility stuff, but I told myself it would be okay to indulge a little on my Birthday! After skating we all headed back to my house and some of us made a Harlem Shake video!!! Hahaha - IT. WAS. SOOOOO. FUN!!! Hahaha. I will share the link at the end of the post.

  I must admit that I felt a little sad on my actual Birthday, Monday March 25th. Every year since I've been an adult, my Grandmother would call me and sing "Happy Birthday" first thing in the morning on my birthdays, she was the only call I'd answer that early in the morning, lol. She did it ever year, as soon as I'd pick up and say hello, she would immediately start singing and I would get the biggest grin on my face. . . it's as if she made my birthday official by doing that, and I would go about my day feeling special and happy, hehe. This year it was just my brother who called. My Dad called a few days before, he was a bit early, but he's had stokes so he gets a free pass on that one, Haha. Oh and my sister called that evening!! It just felt weird not to get that birthday call from her, it also felt weird, because my actual birthday felt like just another day, imagine that *sigh* true adulthood right there, baby - lol. Also, two people passed away on my Birthday *sigh*  My aunts, Mom from cancer and my Accounts Payable Manager's Dad passed away from complications of pneumonia, although it seemed rather sudden :( Good grief, I need a break from people passing away. We are only 4 months into this year and I've already been to 4 funerals :|

Overall. . . I'm soooo happy to have turned 30 ♥ It feels good!!

Looking back on my 20's. . . I had a ton of fun so I'm not sad, because their gone, I'm grateful that I can look back and know I really enjoyed my them. I learned a lot, had a lot of fun, took a lot of pictures, grew up a lot, evolved as a person, as a human being, as a wife and friend. I learned that love is more valuable than ones image or material things. I learned to sacrifice my own needs for others when needed,  I learned how to survive in this crazy world, this fast moving, uncertain and ever changing world we call home. I'm alive, I have a future ahead of me, I have a car and a roof over my head, I have an amazing Husband, I have a good job, great friends, I have deep love in my life and the ability to love others. And, through all my struggles; and there have been many, I'm still so damn grateful to be here in this world, to be here living, breathing, loving, laughing, hoping and pondering. I've learned that life can be simple and for me that is total happiness.

I'm excited to see what my 30's will bring!!
