A new decade

Today is the last day of my 20s. Tomorrow I will wake up and be 30.  I'm actually not freaked out about being 30 like some people get. (Although when I was a kid, 30 was OLD!)

I was, however, thinking about my 20s.  Looking back, it was a pretty amazing decade in my life: I got married, had 2 wonderful babies, started a career as a teacher, took a leap and started a new career as a doula, travelled to places I had only ever seen in photos, and have to date witnessed 22 babies (besides my own) come into this world.

30s- you've got some big shoes to fill. That's some pretty awesome stuff to follow.

Bring. It. On.

Life only gets better, Jan. Especially if you don't freak out about your 'age'. As Gramma Finn always said "You're only as old as you feel" (And I don't think she meant as old as your body feels)

30!!! OMG, YOU'RE OLD!!! So glad I'm SO much younger than you!


I'm not dreading 30 either. If the 30s are better than the 20s, which everyone proclaims them to be, we're in for a heck of a ride!!
