Big plans

Kyle asked what I wanted to do for my birthday and I said, "dinner with my nearest and dearest, in a forest with twinkly lights."

My brother in law told me he thinks I live in a fantasy land. And I think he's right. But 30 is kinda of a big deal. Right?

And when I showed up on Saturday night, I honestly don't think it could have been anymore beautiful! 

My husband is a machine.
And my sister in law is a wiz, no craft is too big for this girl. 

I thought being 30 meant that I would all of the sudden feel a serious dose of permanent maturity. 
And a few wrinkles...

But instead all I kept thinking was, "here I am surrounded with these incredible people who I get to share my life with, people I love more than words could ever express, eating really great food in a "forest" with twinkly lights."

I felt really lucky.

Turning 30 wasn't so bad after all.

Hey there! A mutual friend of ours, Jess Youngsma, sent me over to your blog and recommended you for a little feature I do over on my blog called Tattoo Tuesday! :) My blog is: if you want to check it out. Anyway, I'd love to feature you- I feel kind of awkward messaging a stranger (and I may have left a comment about this before and forgot- today is my due date and I have a bit of preggo brain), but I've been meaning to ask you!

Anyway, let me know- my email is
