i'm thirty!

goodbye 20's! hello 30's!! i have officially started another decade of my life. it's hard to believe that i'm thirty! ahhh!!!

the picture below is of my mom kneeling down to let my sister hug me right as i was carried in the house from the hospital. i was just a few days old. sisters are the best!

December, 1978


three years.

on monday i celebrated with my boyfriend (and my sister - i'll explain below) our three year anniversary, of dating that is. he surprised me with the most beautiful bouquet of roses!! what a gentleman.

it was a full moon the night i first met him. i dragged my sister with me on this "blind date" because i was so so nervous to meet this guy that my aunt (and godmother) had so kindly set me up with. honestly, i still can't believe my sister agreed to come with me.

when we walked in the front door of the local neighborhood bar that we were meeting at, there he was! i remember seeing his smile and then my heart start POUNDING! he knew it was me because i told him i would be wearing a turquoise jacket. but with my sister right next to me, i think he was a little confused because he was not expecting a twosome blind date! the three of us sat at this little table, and well, had "our" first date together.

three years later, and we're still together!
