The big 3-0, I guess it really isn't old.

This is me on my fifth birthday!
I remember while growing up how old everyone was.  I mean my mom was 30, my teachers were 30, my friends' moms were 30, and boy were they old.  I couldn't fathom the idea of ever getting THAT old.  What could you possibly do for fun when you're that old!!?! 

Well today I am officially OLD by the standards of my youth.  But guess what I am not old!  My friends are not old, my husband is not old and the people that I associate with they aren't old either. 

I guess you could say the assumptions of youth can only be overcome by age.  I do still find it interesting to think that I am 30.  I really did picture it being different.  Even at 20, 30 still seemed a long ways away.  But thinking back to myself at 20, I am still that same person.  Maybe with a few more responsibilities and in bed a few hours earlier, but I am still me.

So here's to the 30's, may they be as fun as the 20's were, and may I never feel old!

Happy 3-0!!! And no, 30 isn't old. Looking back, my 30's were my favorite years. Your body is still young enough to do anything you want and you have more wisdom than you did while in your 20's. By the time you hit your 40's, you are smarter and wiser, but your body starts rebelling against you. So even your 30's. Even at 50, I still feel young, it's just my body that doesn't. And I can't believe you are that old. I thought you were the same age as the 2 Brandon's. Mike's Brandan turns 28 on the 21st. And my Brandon was only 27 this year. How did you get older than them?

Welcome to the old folks home! Put your teeth in a cup and come sit down for some cream of wheat - it's almost Christmas after all and that's the most solid food we 30-somethings can handle! ha ha. Glad you aren't such a baby anymore! Plus - I don't think that that picture is of you at 5. I think it's Mak.

Oh! Happy Birthday too!!!

Happy birthday! Being in my 30's has been my favorite. It seems like I know who I am now and where I fit in.

30 isn't old, you're just beginning!!

If you're as old as you feel, I'm about 52. If you're as old as you act, I'm 14.
