The Big 3-0!

Like fine wine, getting better with age!

In the last couple of years, I found birthdays a little rough...entering the end of my 20's was really hard for me! Entering 30? Kind of exciting - strange as it seems!! For years I had this plan to ignore my 30th, but then I realized it just wasn't going to happen. 

Today is my GOLDEN BIRTHDAY, the BIG 3-0! 

You HAVE to celebrate your GOLDEN birthday, especially when it falls on 30!

Thanks to my wonder family and friends, throughout this month they have helped me collect 30 - 1981 quarters for my birthday!!

The MS Walk - 2011

Last year I joined my friend Janet for the MS walk in Washington. Since the last walk, both of our husbands have been stationed in Virginia, so it was exciting to join her again! Saturday, April 9th our team consisted of  9 adults, 11 kids and 6 strollers!

We went all out this year and ordered shirts professionally. So worth it, they came out amazing! We ordered from this local company, Terrance at Shirt Tales.
