It's my birthday! I'm 30 today. It's a big birthday, and I'm a big birthday lover, so I'm really excited. I'm wearing a party dress to work, and I baked a raspberry buttermilk cake from scratch, complete with lemon zest. It was very complicated.
On the one hand, today marks a series of failures. I wanted to do a lot of things by the time I was 30: be (credit card) debt free, own a home, have three kids. On the other hand, I have a lot to show for 30, too: two boys, a master's degree, a great job, lots of friends. And I still fit in the same jeans I wore in high school. So I may not have a house, but at least I still have a nice butt.
All in all, good times.
