Happy 2015 to you, too! 2014 had some big shoes to fill after everything that happened in 2013, and I’d say it far surpassed expectations. Obviously and without question, the arrival of Wesley singlehandedly outdid the entire previous year. On top of that I started a new job at an incredible company. To celebrate the end of a fantastic year, I revisited Goldbely to order something special for Ev and me (sorry Wes).
In the blink of an eye, Ev and I have been married 4 years, and I can honestly say each day is better than the last. And while the past 6 months have certainly been a little different with Wes’ arrival, they are still each getting better and better, perhaps even more so. But that means we’ve had to change up how we celebrate special occasions, just like for our recent birthdays. So for our 4th anniversary we decided rather than going out to a fancy, expensive dinner, we’d make a fancy, expensive dinner.
Well yesterday I was 29 and today I’m 30. It’s not a big deal really. More than anything it provides a good milestone to use for reflection as, many friends have said, it’s time to enter the best decade yet. If that’s true, it’s going to have a lot to live up to. In my 20s I…
…graduated from college, moved to DC, got engaged to my best friend, moved to Austin, got married to said best friend, bought a house, had a baby — and those are just the major things. I also…
…ran 13 marathons, qualified for and ran the Boston Marathon, completed an Ironman, and read all five Game of Thrones books. So my 30s have some big shoes to fill. But based on how amazing the last 12 weeks of Wesley’s life have been, I’m pretty sure my 30s won’t have any trouble taking the title of top decade.
Turning 30 is also a great excuse to make an extravagant dinner to celebrate our birthdays! After a great brunch in the morning, we reasoned that we only turn 30 once and had to go big.
