Three Decades

Is how long I have been on this earth. Apparently with age comes wisdom. Or something. 
Here's mine:

Don't expect people to react how you expect them to. Conversely, you can usually expect them to do exactly what you expect. 

What they say about being comfortable with yourself at age 30 is sort of bullshit. I am still crazily insecure. 

Believe in second chances. 

Do things for yourself sometimes. Especially if you have completely changed your lifestyle in the past five years. 

Always be polite. 

It is okay to not respond. In general, silence is a good response, especially if you have a history of putting your foot in your mouth. 

The dotted line represents the last of my wisdom. Some days I feel like that dotted line. 

My darling husband threw a get-together on my actual birthday (Saturday). He got me a red velvet cake from Costco that was freaking scrumptious. There were cocktails and friends and music and laughing!
Another thing I have to say about my husband (he's a really surprising fellow)...the man is GOOD at picking out clothes for me. Like, INSANELY good. I generally always want clothes for gifts. I used to spend a pretty penny on duds and do so no longer.  SO, for any giftworthy event, I want either cash or clothes. 
He got me a really awesome dress WITH POCKETS. Which I promptly hemmed and wore at the party. AND I LOOKED TOTALLY CUTE. (no pics, though. I'm buying a full-length mirror soon) 

My life is so full of blessings, sometimes I need to take a step back and reflect on them. All too easily do we get caught up in the negative aspects of life that slap us in the face continually. 

I have a part-time paying gig that I actually LIKE and am paid pretty well to do. 

I have a husband who is an active father and provides us with a roof over our heads.

I have a healthy, affectionate, hilarious son. 

I have friends and family that love and understand me. 

Tah. Dah. 
Happy two-days-after-my-birthday to all, and to all a good night. 
(its 7 AM, but whatever)
