Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!

Hello, and Happy Holidays, Friends!!

Today is my 29th birthday. Golly geez, when did I live 29 years?! It's hard to believe that it was 29 years ago last night that my awesome uncle was making this poster to display at his annual Christmas party:

And yes, believe it or not, this 5-foot-3 gal started out as a huge 10 lb. baby. Big babies run in our family, plus I was a week late ;) 

I can't pinpoint exactly when it happened, but over the past year or two, I finally (finally) have felt like an absolute grown-up, rather than a young adult. My friends are mostly all married, have (multiple) children, are doing well in great careers and own their own homes. I have finally found The One with whom I have lots of plans for the future (and a pair of season football tickets -- I feel like if that doesn't scream adulthood, I don't know what does!). I have lived in my home for over four years and love the neighborhood and our high-rise community.

The 20's Decade has been really, really good to me, and I feel like the 30's Decade is going to be even bigger. I couldn't be happier heading into it, which I take as a good sign of things to come :)

XOXO to all of my family, friends and readers that have helped make the twenties such a good decade. I can't wait to see what the end of it brings in the year ahead!

Over the next week, I am going to unplug a bit as we spend time with family here in Atlanta and up in New Jersey. I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday! See you in 2013, and hooray for good years ahead for all of you! :)
