This is 30… for me

This year’s birthday is considered a milestone, and while I am pretty much the last one of all our friends to enter the 30 club, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t shocked that I am actually 30 today. I could remember when BOTH of my parents turned 30 and I thought it was SO old. When my husband turned 30, I thought .. ehh I have some time. Although I didn’t imagine I’d be 36 weeks pregnant on my 30th birthday, I’m still ready to take on the “dirty thirty”. Thirty years adds up differently for everyone. This is 30… for me.
