It seems I have successfully survived my 20s and have now reached my 30s. My 20s were great.  A lot of awesome things happened (like a lot), although I can't help but think it was all leading up to my 30s.  This is when my older and wiser self (HA!) gets to stop waiting for things to happen and makes them happen!  30's, here I come!


*note to self: find a reason for a photoshoot with balloons.  Seriously, typing "balloons" into pinterest leads to some amazingly chic and artistic images like this one from Design Love Fest.  Who knew a post about painting on balloons could be so elegant?

Unlike some people, 30 doesn't scare me.  It does, however mean that I failed neglected to complete my 30 before 30 list.  Grumble.  I should have checked off more items last summer/fall before the polar vortex (and the subsequent hibernation) set in.  I overestimated my winter motivation and underestimated how long winter would last.  Still waiting for warmth!  Yesterday didn't even hit 50!!!  But enough excuses!  Now the list is "30 things to do as close to turning 30 as possible."  I will not admit defeat!
