Age Ain't Nothin But A Number

And I truly believe that.
The BIG one has come and gone.
I don't feel a day over 25.
Probably never will.
Being thirty doesn't bother me in the least.
I kinda feel like I was made to be a 30 year old.
That being said,
I've never been one to make a big deal about my birthday plans.
I'm more like, "Here's what I'm doing."
"Can you come?"
"Can't make it?"
"Maybe next year."
I wanted this year to be different.
To be surrounded by my friends.
Don't get me wrong,
I had a fabulous family night.
But I really wanted my friends night
(this completely excludes my dear friend who's 9 months preggers &
Ann who I COMPLETELY forgot to add to my evite list!!! I'm so stinkin sorry)
It was stressing me out completely.
I just wanted someone to help me because I was lost.
Basically it ended with a friend coming to the rescue a week and a half before
And, with that short of notice on TOP of the flooding, only a handful of people could come.
Changing the date wasn't even an option.
I had already asked off for that weekend
and everyones calendars are filling up fast!
I am so thankful to those that did come.
Even after their worn out days of work and endless responsibilities.
It means more than you'll ever know.
I mean, 30 only happens
once right!?
Sometimes I feel like maybe I was expecting too much.
I guess everyone has grandiose ideas about such a BIG milestone.
I had a blast with those that came.
I mean, We DID have our own private concert
at a beautiful cabin inspired joint.
And hilarity ensued when games were played.
But I can't seem to help but feel down.
I may not come to everybody's everything
But I make sure I'm there when it really matters.

Even if it's hard on me for a day.

I can't say it was the best birthday ever.

I wish I could.
I wanted sooooo bad for it to be.
There's always next year right.
