Today's the day. The big 33. I love my 30's. By far my best years ever. The last half of my 20's just sucked so never was I so happy for a birthday than I was for my 30th. I got married when I was 31. Pregnant when I was 32 and I'll have my little munchkin in my arms before my 33rd year is over. Life is good.

It's easy to get bogged down in the daily grind of life and the little annoyances but seriously I have so much to be thankful for. I have my health and the health of my baby. I have a husband who continually surprises me with his giving and caring. I have a family that loves and supports me and rallies around me. I have friends that are loyal and on my side. I have a roof over my head and food to eat. I have a car that gets me to a job that pays my bills. I have a JOB. This year I feel so grateful for all I have and even some of what I don't. Life can always be made easier but sometimes going over the hill is the experience you need.

Thank you all for your well wishes today. You have truly brightened my day and made me feel loved and appreciated. Each and everyone of you. And there is no better gift than that.

There is nothing like having a baby to make you not care about your age. I turned 30 just after I had Chloe: it was awesome timing!
