Last week, I hit a milestone. Yup, you guessed it — the big three-O. Just like I’ve done nearly every year on my birthday, I made myself a rainbow chip cake with rainbow chip frosting (not funfetti – rainbow chip is way better) and posed for my annual birthday shot with my cake. (and since Leo is all about food — my dog).
Of course Leo tried to get in on the cake action — sorry Leo, cake is for people. He will get his annual dog birthday cake in December on his birthday.
I had a good day. It was low key — much different from last year, when I celebrated my birthday in Germany but it was perfect for this milestone birthday.
I got several nice cards from friends and family, a few calls and texts from others, a nice sushi dinner out with my husband and a big box arrived from my Mom and Dad, who must have read my article on Retro Renovation about Flamingo Fiesta ware...
…because they sent me a whole place setting plus a few other pieces!
Thanks Mom and Dad! I love my new flamingo Fiesta ware!
Now I have a whole rainbow of colors! Dinner is so much more fun to eat on pretty plates!
I know turning 30 is a big deal, but I don’t feel any different. Age is just a number, right? You are as old as you feel. All I know is that right now, I’m at a good place in my life. I have a wonderful (and adorable) husband, the best dog (and cats) in the whole world, I’m living in my dream house and I’m working at a job that I love. Life is good.
