My birthday was late July and I turned 30!

I thought this was a cute and clever gift:

No…I don’t really believe it, but it did give me a laugh!

Here is a different perspective of turning 30… Michael Moniz’s 30 reasons why turning 30 rocks, from his website Living Life Out Loud:

  1. I get to check a new age group box on forms.
  2. I get to say, “I remember when I was in my 20s”.
  3. It is a milestone birthday.
  4. It is more exciting to say “I am 30″ than “I am 29 or 31″
  5. More exciting to blog for a week about your 30th birthday.
  6. I get 10 years to prepare for turning 40.
