I am now 31. Wowza. I thought 30 was a breeze compared to 31. 30 was exciting and new and I planned so many fun things. 31, on the other hand, snuck up on me and instigated a whole lot of deep thinking. It's funny how birthdays can do that. They put things in perspective, make you set goals and aspirations, and they also give you a healthy dose of realism.
This years celebrations included a family weekend in the burbs, complete with a bonfire...
That was followed by a fun-filled weekend in the city kicked off with a celebration at work and dinner with the family, then on to the Air and Water Show, rooftop fun, and a Cubs vs. Sox game!
Overall, I am a lucky gal. My family and friends are amazing! They always know how to make me feel very special and loved.
