The last week of my 20s

As I sit here at 11:11pm (make a wish!) on this Sunday night, I realize that one week from today I will be 30. I remember being a kid thinking that I would never get old, feeling like time stood still. Now it seems that I wish time would slow down; sometimes I can't even remember what month it is. I just feel like I want to savor time instead of wishing my life away. I'm the type of person who always looks ahead & I don't want to look back at my life years from now wishing I had just enjoyed being in the moment. So, it is my wish that this decade will be more about enjoying each day & each moment. So many things have changed over the past 10 years; at this time 10 years ago, I was in an apartment in college with my friend Amanda. I still had 2 years of school + my dietetic internship ahead of me. I was 3 years away from marrying Mike & 9 years away from having my first child. Who knows what the next 10 years will bring?!

I hope for good health & happiness to those that I love. I wish for my baby boy to have the best life that we can give him. I look forward to watching him grow & seeing our friends & family grow in size as they have children (or more) too. This is a very big year/decade for me as I am now accountable for a life other than my own. I have a little boy (who happens to be sleeping in the next room) who is relying on me. I look forward to many more adventures & experiences!


  1. I can't even image what the next 10 years will bring for us all. It's going to be an exciting decade. I often look back at how much my life has changed over the years too... I also can't believe that I've already known you and Mike for 5+ years! How time flys!

  2. Time flies, no doubt! Welcome to your 30's kiddo! I'll be glad to have you here!

  3. Welcome to the club! Happy (early) Birthday Allison!
