My 30th Birthday!

Birthday card from Noel

Today is my 30th birthday, and I can't help but be emotional about it.  Not in a bad way, either, which is surprising, because I thought I would be about turning 30.  Emotional in that I can't believe how many amazing people I have in my life that are constantly supporting me in everything I do.  I think about my amazing mother who, 30 years ago, had her first little baby...and how I never really appreciated her as much as I should have until I had my own little babies. 

It's been a great 30 years, and I couldn't be happier.

This morning, I woke up to Noel and my big boys serving me breakfast in bed.  French toast, orange juice, and a gigantic bowl of fruit.  It was amazing.

Then, Noel brought the computer upstairs and played a video he made for me.  30 of my family members and friends sent Noel a video sharing memories and sweet birthday wishes for me...and how dare they!!!!  It was way too much for these hormones to handle!  I laughed and cried, and it was THE most perfect birthday present of all time.  I will probably watch it every day :), but if not, definitely every year on my birthday.  I can't get over how thoughtful and kind everyone was to send me those videos.  Thank you.

This year is going to be a great one.  I can feel it.  With that kind of beginning, followed closely by a snuggle snooze with my baby, how could it not?

A big CHEERS to you all....wishing you a happy, happy week!

I NEED to see this video. I can't believe Noel included me on it and I was elated when he asked me- I hope you have the HAPPIEST 30th BIRTHDAY EVER!!!! You're truly such an amazing woman and I'm so lucky to call you a friend. Love you!

Such a great birthday gift! I did something kind of like that for Father's Day for my husband right before we had our baby...friends and family telling him why he'd be a great dad.
