I like the sound of 3.0 better

"Thirty was so strange for me. I really had to come to terms with the fact that I am now a walking and talking adult" ~ C.S Lewis

Well here we are. The start of a new decade. I just put my baby girl down for her nap and now I sit to write a contemplative post about what this means to me. I'm totally good with it.

I have never actually been happier than I am right now. My twenties were lovely. I worked hard at my career and achieved great success in the land of coffee. I married my dream boy after he courted me for 7 years. And I brought life into this world. I could not ask for more in my life!

Mr Swell just walked in the door with coffee in hand. This day is already looking up! Here's what we've got planned for the rest of it:
-a workout sesh to get my sweat on before I indulge in this:
- Book browsing & picking up my free bday grande-2pump-soy-chai with cinnamon on top:
- Wear my new birthday wellies because the sunshine I requested hasn't made it's debut yet:
which look like this:
Prepare a yummy eggplant parmesan dinner in my new birthday pots & pans:
Then our lovely neighbour is coming over to babysit after I put Chloe down so that Mr Swell & I can do a little of this:
This weekend we're having all our lovelies over for a dinner party & game night so I'm pretty much doing the Jersey Shore fist pump right now!

I saw your comment over at the Pettijohn's and thought I needed to become a follower because it looks like our little ones are about the same age. My son, Clint, is on almost the exact same feeding schedule as your daughter!

And Happy Birthday! :)
