Ah! I cannot believe I’m 30 years old today. It’s so crazy to think that I’m entering into my 30s, but at the same time I could not be more excited.

Truthfully, my eyes are welling up with tears thinking about how richly the Lord has blessed my life over the past 30 years. I have parents (and parents-in-law) that model daily how to seek the Lord first, love your spouse, and love our family well. I have a wonderful education, a great job that brings me joy, a husband that loves me more than I will ever understand, friends that stand by me through the good and the bad, a roof over my head, a church that encourages and admonishes me, the best siblings and siblings-in-law, and two beautiful girls that I get to call my daughters.

Yes, I have been making all kinds of jokes the past couple of days about being “old” (think botox, wrinkles, joint pain, etc.), but in all honesty, I cannot wait to enter into my 30s. I’m excited! I’m excited to see what the Lord has in store for my family. I’m excited to see how my relationship with Christ will grow as life continues. I’m excited to accept the challenge of learning how to love my husband and family better each and every day. I’m excited (and still in awe daily) that God has blessed me with being the mommy of Emma Grace and Abigail and hope I don’t mess that one up! I’m excited for new traveling adventure, too! 😉

I could never have imagined this is what my life would look like at 30, and I wouldn’t change it for the world!
