Next week I will turn 30. I still think I am as much fun as 2 fifteen year olds, but I have changed SO much over the last decade, something I think most 30 year olds would say. Here are some of the things I would have never envisioned doing when I was 20 or even think I would do when I was 30.

Listen to NPR in the car all the time

Stay in on a weekend night and not feel bad about it

Workout on the weekends

Maintain a Flexitarian diet or even know what that meant

Have a Costco membership

Wake up before 9 on the weekend without an alarm

Not live paycheck to paycheck

Drink coffee daily and like it

Be pretty introverted

Be able to say no to people fairly easily and be less of a people pleaser

Like wine as much as I do/accidentally get drunk on wine very frequently

I am so much more confident and comfortable with myself. I feel ok doing what I want and don't try to please others as much as I did in my early 20s. I have so many wonderful friends that fill my life with fun, happiness and gratitude. I have the most amazing husband who takes very good care of me and is the perfect partner for me - who makes me laugh and smile everyday and continues to surprise me with his sweetness and talent even after 12 years together. I have the most supportive and loving family. I consider myself lucky everyday for all of the blessings in my life! I'm excited to see what memories and challenges this year brings.
