Well friends, today I turned 30. It’s a little bizarre reading that number because I think somedays I still feel 16 years old. But if this is what 30 feels like, I’ll take it. In fact, for my birthday I got to come see my best friends who moved to Chicago a few months ago and we’ve had the prettiest fall weather over the last few days here. I mean look at those leaves behind me! At one point they were blowing from the trees and falling on me as if we planned it and there was a guy above me with a wind machine and a bag of leaves. Turns out, this is actually just what autumn should feel like in most places and that is actually just a natural progression of trees. You can take a girl out of Texas, but you can’t convince her there are actually places that have real seasons.
Back to turning 30. Yes, that number is weird to type out because it all seemed to happen very fast. But as far as being afraid of getting old or aging and all that noise, I’m just grateful for the last 30 years. I mean three decades — that’s a lot of life in the books. How many days is that even? Nevermind, let’s not count the days. Let’s just leave it at 30 years old. I’m good with that number.
I’m going to be real about this sweater: it’s pretty much perfect. I bought it from Piperlime one day when we had a random cold front and I got excited, but then it just disappeared from their site. No worries though, this little detective found it at Nordstrom. So it can be all of our birthdays today. 🙂
