29 + 1 = 30.

Saturday was the first anniversary of my 29th birthday. There were lots of things that made this one extra special, but my mom and dad got things started with a great surprise: 30 gifts and one to grow on! My mom said it started out as a few little gifts; and then she thought it'd be fun to do keep going. I agree. I am overwhelmed by their generosity and love. What a way to make a girl feel special!
I think other than the fact that I will surely be called Ma'am wherever I go and no longer be mistaken for a college student, I am a little sad that I can no longer classify myself as being in my 20s. For instance, take the all-important magazine advice: it's about to get real. Real old.
Thanks to all my family and friends for making this day so great and for sending me some birthday love. I look forward to the next thirty and going to bed early. 


  1. Tonight at MB the students were sharing exciting summer plans. It was cool. And then someone said, "Anyone got bad news for summer?" and I said, I'm turning 30. JK. I'll be with pals and you! That appears to help.

  2. Happy Birthday, Kat! Still going to come visit ...

  3. What is the cake? Also, your mom did AWESOME.
