30 turns around the sun
30 used to feel like this daunting age of true adulthood; like I was supposed to have it “all together” by now. I’d have my go-to hairstylist, visit the dentist twice a year, take vitamins daily, shop at farmers markets regularly because I’d also be planning out meals in advance, and of course I’d be able to keep an herb garden alive…
So far, I get my haircut twice a year, haven’t seen the dentist in forever, most of the vitamins in my pantry are expired, if prepping a bunch of quinoa at once counts as “planning meals in advance” then I’m killin it, and my latest attempt with rosemary and mint lasted 4 days.
So, as an official member of the 30-something club, I can attest that it’s a whole lot like the 20-something club… just with an earlier bed time, a ritualistic anti-aging skincare routine (which I’ll soon be sharing more of over on @houseofvellum
), increased self-confidence and general know-how, and more discretionary income. So while this “all together” thing is complete nonsense, I’m definitely diggin’ this decade.
Also, this may have been my favorite birthday yet celebrating with my hubby, eating deep fried dough & tater tots for breakfast, boarding through fresh powder all day, then getting in the kitchen and testing new recipes all weekend. MY DREAM 💕
p.s. we laughed SO HARD trying to take these photos! It was windy and snowing and the balloons were going EVERYWHERE! I’ve never wanted to have sound effects on photos more than with no. 3 ➡🦖
