I got back from a three week vacation just in time to turn 30. Really, the plane landed just a couple hours before midnight. I might have even turned 30 in the air for a little bit, as we raced against time zones (as if flying doesn’t leave me in an existential state of mind on a normal day!) Anyway, today it’s my birthday. I’m 30 years old.
Normally I would write a lengthy year-in-review post, or in today’s case, a decade-in-review post. I feel like I just did something like that not too long ago, so I’m going to spare you and me both the repetition. There are a few things to add, of course. The fact that I’ll be getting married in two months. That I’ll be an aunt then, and again in five months. The fact that I’m an animator now, at least kind of, I’m learning. I could write at length about any number of things from the past year or the past 30 years, but I’ll just keep it short and say that I’m very happy. I feel very blessed. I’d write more but it’s my birthday and I think I’d like to go do something fun.
My dad sent me the above photo in a card. It’s me and him, 20-some years earlier. There has been no shortage of love in my life 🙂
