I just celebrated a milestone birthday! Yep, I’m officially 30 years old! Okay, I have to be honest: I was kind of dreading this one, but it turned out to be an absolutely amazing celebration! I have to give a shout out to my husband for doing an awesome job of making my 30th birthday very special!
With my birthday being in the middle of the week, we decided to celebrate on the weekend. We started the day with a trip to Callaway Gardens. This is where we were engaged on my birthday nine years ago! The flowers were beautiful, the weather was perfect, and the chapel organ even serenaded us during our picnic lunch!
On our way home from the Gardens, Brian suggested that we stop in at our favorite mexican restaurant for dinner. I’m always up for mexican, so I was super excited to end our perfect day with a cheesy chicken quesadilla! Unbeknownst to me, my husband was breathing a sigh of relief that I agreed to his plan because he had arranged a surprise for me and it was waiting at the restaurant.
When I walked in, several of my friends and family were there to embarrass me…I mean… celebrate with me! 😉 It was so special…the perfect ending to a perfect day!
Yes, I’m no longer in my twenties, and, at times, that might still bother me a little, but thirty is looking pretty good right now! Besides, I’ve heard it said “In the end it is not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in your years.” Thank you, Lord, for giving me more than just another year. Thank you for my abundant life!
