Thirty something

I haven't been here in awhile, I know I keep saying I'll be back and I am a flake out. I just don't have the words for anything other than a few pictures, which Instagram has completely taken over my photo sharing. Anyhow, somehow I need to find my way back.

I remember the day my mom turned 30. I thought she was older than dirt. I was 9. I may have cried. I thought she was going to die. Crazy. Well, my kids think I'm ancient just like I thought my young mom was prehistoric.

I turned thirty-something last week. Well, 31 to be exact. No longer am I 30. I'm one of those thirty somethings. Scotty and I use to say "when we are in our thirties..." now it's our forties and it will be here in a flash. I intend to soak up my next 9 years of this decade of life, God willing. I think I like my 30's way more than my 20's.

The thirties brought me wanting to be healthier, a better mom, I am more grounded in who I am, less critical of myself, more self esteem and worth...a whole decade of my 20's being married..the 20's were spent in a lot of angst, grief, sorrow, sickness, lack of self worth, and me being completely unsure of myself. So long to her! I don't miss her a bit. Sure, I'm still the same. But I just feel so much more purpose-ful. I'm sure I sound crazy. Completely.

But here's to thirty something. I celebrated with my best friend, we actually share the same birthday. I think God sent her to me, because we share so much more than that.

We had a great time celebrating at my fave Mexican restaurant. I love having a May 4th bday, right before Cinco de Mayo. Guacamole is my love language.

Happy Mothers Day to you all as well! I hope you had a great day celebrating!!! Here are a few of our pics from Mother's Day!

Notice the hair got shorter this week. I have slight remorse, lol;)

I'll leave you with a few Sawyer pics. She's growing up!

Happy Tuesday!
