i'm old

Well, I'm oficially old. When did this happen?! I had a great birthday...Ryan knows what a big deal my birthday is to me and he always goes out of his way to spoil me. The day started with me sleeping in...Ry got up with the girls at the crack of dawn (maybe the best part of my day!) and then he made me breakfast in bed. There was so much food, I couldn't even come close to finishing it. When I finally got out of bed, I opened my presents from Ryan and the girls and then we went to church. Afterwards, we went to brunch with Ryan's parents and then had an entire day of shopping. We went EVERYWHERE. It was a nonstop shopping trip from Fort Myers to Naples hitting all of my favorite stores...I loved every second of it. We took the girls to the Naples mall to see Santa and they actually wanted to sit on his lap!! This was our third attempt to see him this year and so far they have been too scared, so I was thrilled that they finally went through with it. Madeline kept saying that all she was gonna ask Santa to bring her is candy and fruit snacks. There's a surprise...she eats more than anyone I've ever met!! All in all, it was a great day spent with my family...I wouldn't want it any other way :) Someone asked me today how old I was and it felt so wierd to say that I am 30. When did I grow up? Was it almost 10 years ago when I got married or when I had 3 kids or Sunday when I left my twenties behind?! I can honestly say that I am blessed beyond measure and that my life is everything that I would've hoped it would be at this point in my life. I have a husband that I couldn't imagine living without and three precious little girls that I am fortunate enough to be able to stay home with everyday (somedays I need to remind myself that this is a blessing!). Most importantly, I've got a God that loves me in spite of myself. If you had asked me when I was 15 where I would've seen myself at 30, this would be it...though I might've been driving a Range Rover and not a mini van :)
