Yes. It was inevitable. I turned 30.
I went from being okay with it, to completely freaking out, back to being okay with it again. After all, age is only a number right? Wrong! The only people who say things like that are people who can’t purchase their own alcohol and old people. Really, though I am okay with it. Feeling like your throat is closing and you can’t breathe is not “freaking out”, it’s just what happens AT MY AGE.
“So Dorothy, what have you learned?”
I’ve learned that I have THE most amazing friends.
I’ve learned that I have a weakness for cute shoes.
I finally mastered eyeliner.
I have NOT learned how to get out of a ticket.
I’ve learned if you make up a word and use it enough, others will start using it too.
I’ve learned to say no.
I’ve learned I can be selfish sometimes, and I’m working on it.
MY CHILDREN ARE THE WORLD TO ME!
I’m turning into my mother, and couldn’t be happier about it.
My dad is cooler than your dad.
God is so good.
Most importantly I’ve learned who I am and WHO’S I am. I’ve learned what I’ll stand for and what I won’t.
I love the person I am and what I am still to become. God has given me so much, and I strive every day to walk the path he has intended for me.

And because no blog post is complete without a picture….here is a crappy picture of me I took with my phone…..eating breakfast……in a mirror that I should have cleaned first before taking a picture in it. P.s. That is a banana I’m eating.
