The Big Three O

I have spent the past few weeks working and spending time with people I care about. I have made an ongoing date with each of my nephews when we do things like play chess, have ice cream or donuts, and play video games. It`s pretty awesome to be spending quality time with them and it`s good to see how we can grow together. I also have started doing pilates regularly again which is a step forward with my health. I am already feeling a lot more flexible and my strength is improving.

The weather has been really weird. We have unbelievable warm temperatures and there is still not much snow most days, if any. Certainly not enough to make a snowman.

Last week, I was just getting ready to go out when I got a surprise visitor. Susanne came back from Denmark to visit her new love, Aaron. They did a pretty good job of shocking me as I really had no idea. She gave me a beautiful photo album that she had made. It pretty much showcased the evolution of our relationship and I was crying by the time I got to the last page. They thanked me for introducing them before going to spend some time with Aarons family up North.

My birthday weekend was the best yet. My sister and nephews gave me not one but two cakes and special presents. Jord took me for lunch at my favorite restaurant, Japanese Village. Yogi took me for tea and yummiest desserts. Thad hosted a BBQ which went on well into the early hours of the morning. Then Petra, Elaina and I celebrated our triple birthday at a party which ended up turning out to be one of the best house parties ever.

Thank you to all those who sent me wonderful birthday wishes. I was pleasantly surprised to see how many people remembered. Your kind words and loving thoughts really made my day. Thank you.

So now I am 30. I think about all the things I have accomplished up until now. And I think about what I am about to embark on. I know that I have a lot to learn. Although I am still unsure of myself, my path is becoming clearer every day.

Today I am grateful for growth.
