30...and giveaway winner!

Yesterday marked my 30th year in this world I have come to know...
The future is an exciting place to ponder upon.

The old photo above is a great representation of who I am and how some things remain the same over time...

...I still have a toothy smile.

...I still get excited oh so easily. It is very hard for me to contain myself when I'm happy about something!

...Style wise, I probably am still stuck somewhere in the 80's (haha!)

...The cassette tape  in the photo is Madonna's Immaculate Collection. Still a favorite. Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation is up there, too.

...I'll always love my birthday; probably just as much as I did in this photograph. It's a day to be reminded  of how incredibly lucky you are to be surrounded by people who love and support you.

We officially danced all night long; in a somewhat snooty restaurant with a DJ willing to play all of our crazy requests. We probably were laughed at and we were definitely pointed at. We were the only people in the room dancing the entire time..and it was awesome.

Life changes....

                                             From being sort of confused and not all that happy....

                                                                   To being confident...

                              believing in love and all of its beauty and promise...

to feeling complete.

....Now for the lucky giveaway winner of the Woodland Woolens Waldorf Doll!

  13. 10 years older than you-- I LOVE the Immaculate Collection too. The first song "Holiday" has morphed into our family's favorite "Dance Party Clean Up" tune. Basically we crank up the music and dance our way through a mad dash tidying of the playroom. And singing out "Clean Up" in place of "Holida-ay" fits too. When the song finishes, that's more cleaning and then we're ready to settle down. OR enjoy the clean space for some more dancing! The extended play version works great for getting everything put away! :)

  14. Hey Becca, I just read this today - for me, too, the Immaculate Collection has such strong memories. I remember when my cousin first got it and we listened to it over and over...I can't believe my aunt let us do that, since we were like eight. Ha!!

    And the end of this post brought tears to my is so so true! Xoxo

  15. Glad you had such a great birthday, glad you are feeling happy and at peace with who you are. Wishing you a wonderful year ahead! Sending love.. XOXO

  16. 30 is the best decade! we are awesome in our 30s! welcome to it all.
