29thLast year, I celebrated my last birthday in my 20’s in style – traveling to the Washington, DC area, I met up with one of my best friends, Theresa to see a great orchestra performance, ran the Cherry Blossom Ten-Miler (where I met Jen for the first time), enjoyed cupcakes with friends (and met Becca for the first time) and enjoyed it all in perfect spring sunshine. It was a fantastic day (and weekend) and pumped me up for the year ahead.

Now, 11 months later, I am on the verge of yet another birthday – and well, this one is a doozy: THIRTY. I can hardly believe it, but in 31 days, I will be 30 years old. 30! When did that happen?

To be honest, I am not nervous or scared about leaving my 20’s…frankly, it’s kind of exciting. And besides, what else is age but a number?

In the spirit of this big birthday, I’ve decided to kick off a celebration of love, friends and family, all kicking off tomorrow, which will be Day 1 of – you guessed it – #30daysofawesome!!30awesome

I don’t have concrete plans for EVERY day between now and April 7, but keep an eye out here (and my instagram and twitter) for all the fun.

I am excited for the next 30 days, and hope you enjoy following along!

Do you celebrate your birthdays? What’s the coolest thing you ever did to commemorate your big day?


  1. Dude being 30 is the best thing I ever did that I had no control over. I have this unbelievable calm that I completely lacked in my my 20s. Things will be FINE and WORK OUT because they kind of have to. Sorry this turned into unsolicited free LNRB therapy ❤ I love you and your birthday month!

  2. Fun! After almost 11 months of it, I can say 30 is a damn good year!

    I used to always celebrate by having a party at my house, now I tend to stick to just having dinner with some friends. I don’t require anything major, but I like to do something.

  3. It’s funny, when I was in my twenties, I always cared about what people thought. Now that I’ve hit 31 I don’t care as much. We all are humans after all! Enjoy your birthday, age is just a number! ;D

    • Yes! The older I get, the more I realize not to take things so personally/seriously 🙂
