Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

turning 30

Today I turned 30 years old. We had a little swim party at my friend Jenny's house with a TON of kids (who swam the whole time) and their moms, with a grandma too! Everyone seemed to have a good time. My kids have a love/hate relationship with the water. They hate to love it. They get intimidated, but that's okay. It keeps them a little safer. I was nervous almost the whole time; I kept doing head counts for the three kids and could never fully relax. But it was fun! My thoughts on being the big 3-0: According to my mom, 50 is the new 30, so that makes 30... the new 20? I'd rather be 30 than 20 any day! I think I'll feel "old" when I turn 40, because my kids will be old. Personally, I think getting older is easier because there is less uncertainty. I love that Ryan's grandma was talking to my grandma's at a family party once and one of my grandma's looked at me and said, "Oh to be young again", and Ellen said "I wish I was 72 again. That was a good age." That is my goal! I want to be wishing to be 72 someday. That's awesome! So what is it like being 30? No different than 29, and way better than 20. I'm done with school (what a pain THAT was), I have a good hubby, three kids who can make me laugh and cry within the same day, and a puppy that needs to learn manners. I am venturing into being a micro-small business owner. My life right now is fun, if not busy.
