Bye bye 29

Today, February 3rd 2010, I turned 30 years old! I didn't really feel anything unusual this morning when I woke up. I don't know but for a strange reason I expected to get hit by a ton of bricks, a train, a...you get the concept. No, I actually felt pretty good. Yes, it is true, I would have love to start this new decade with a job (I do, however, have a few job interviews this week...fingers cross).

No, when I woke up, I didn't feel like an old crotte (my mother in law, who speaks english, loves to use this "franglish" expression for old turd). I sat in bed, looked around me and realized that I'm a lucky girl. I'm healthy, I have a wonderful husband, a loving cat and dog, a super condo that we call home, a great family and some good friends. I also know what I want and what I have to do to be happy. When I think about it, 30 doesn't sound that bad after all!

Anyway, I don't look like 30!

You don't look your age one bit. But Happy Birthday to you!

Wishing you a great year ahead, and things will always work out...

Best wishes, Veronica

happy birthday!

your thirties are so much better than your twenties. trust me! once you get past the "shock", you'll find that you are just much better off as a 30-year old!

enjoy it! :)

Happy Birthday! You have managed to turn 30 is such a graceful way, I found turning 30 a little traumatic. 40 was a breeze after that!

Happy birthday! Like 2 hippos, I too had a slightly angsty turning 30. Glad yours has been more chilled!

30 is good, 31 is even better in my opinion. :)

I've been 29 for 8 years now, and my 9 year old helps me uphold the "truth" of it. Nothing wrong with 30, of course, but in case you need a back-up...

~*Happy Birthday!*~
It is the new 20... ;)
Oh how unbelievably silly we've gotten!
Good luck and all the best for the coming year!
