I’m 30…..and I am blessed.

Today is my 30th birthday.  I have been dreading this day for some time….feeling sad that I am no longer 20 something, carefree and young – and wondering how those years went by sooo quickly.  But you know what?  Today I realized how lucky I am.   I’m 30 yeah…but I’m not over the hill yet!  I have 2 beautiful little girls who are an absolute joy…a husband who adores me… I have wonderful family and friends… I have a successful business and a career that I love more and more everyday, I have my health….I am blessed.

So today..I woke up to find a bunch of periwinkle coloured balloons at the bedroom door..and my five year old tapping me on the shoulder telling me to come downstairs and outside for a big surprise.  I stumbled down the stairs, and looked out the window to find 30 energizer bunnies covering my front lawn for everyone to see.  Secret is out!!  Since today is order pickup day I have had a few clients come and see this display and wish me a happy birthday.. as well as Canada Post, UPS, and FedEx delivery people too!   Combined with all of the well wishes on facebook today I feel like a very special birthday girl!!!  THANK YOU!   Below is a little photo montage of my birthday surprises and gifts…yes-my husband had custom made M&M’s for me (our wedding anniversary was a couple days ago)…purple of course, “ps I love you” with our picture of them!  Cool huh?  White Roses are my favourite…and the best spot on the deck – the lounge chair was my very early birthday present back in June – with a good book and adult beverage is where I’ll be spending the afternoon!  CHEERS!
