That was lovely, and I want to tell you I had the best time in my 30s - I met some terrific friends, we did some crazy things, I felt somewhat more mature in my decisions and really felt I finally knew myself. You, my friend, have triumphed over a very stressful year, with grace and humor, despite those times of fear and uncertainty. I'm glad I got to meet you as a 22 year old expecting her first baby (with that spikey hair). You have really grown alot in the past 8 years. And it's obvious you have a great deal of support from your family and friends. Now, come on down to DC and enjoy that Easter Egg Roll. Oh, and by the way, Happy Birthday.

1. The thing they use to break your water looks like a giant (GIANT) crochet hook. It is not nice.

2. The thing I look forward to the most about turning 30 (in May) is that I no longer will feel obligated to act like I'm still in my 20s, since I haven't felt like I'm in my 20s for some time now.

3. I hug you from Chicago, birth place of the spikey hair. (Milo's, BTW.) Happy Burfday!

You are such an amazing woman. I think you were inspired to video this time of reflecting on your 20's decade. It will be dear to you & your daughters in time. Decades have represented distinct periods of my life. Reflection teaches so much. Each day we have "now". Your 30's ahead, I predict will be very satisfying & stimulating as you see more personal growth in yourself and your family members. Every "now" adds depth & beauty to your life story. Happy Birthday Young Lady!

It only gets better - the 30's. You will have so many cherished memories from that time period - your children growing up, the happiness they bring to your home, your friends, life.

Happy Birthday, Happy 30.

So yeah, you made me cry. :-) I'm a little late commenting on this, but I had a few thoughts to share after watching this. First, you are gorgeous. I know I've known that, but I was struck by it again watching this. The blue of the wall behind you is a good color for you. And, I do very much love the new hair. Second, you are so well spoken and comfortable, and I found it a pleasure to walk down memory lane with you. Here's to a decade filled with joy and laughter and more memories!
