29 is so last year...

Well, yesterday I turned the big 3-0! It really does blow my mind that I'm thirty. Seriously, life is short...and goes by so quickly! I spent last week celebrating in St. Martin with some amazing ladies...I'll post more about that trip later! We had such a wonderful, relaxing time! I got home late on Saturday night and I could hardly wait for Sunday morning so I could see my little lady. I missed her so much while I was away (8 full days), but she was in good hands with her daddy! Really, he was super dad and did such a great job holding down the fort while I was away. I had an amazing day yesterday spending time with Josh and Lucy and catching up on everything that happened over the past week. She is just the best birthday present I could ask for...


And look who is taking a few steps here and there!!



Last night we celebrated with family and close friends at mom's house! I wish I would have taken more pics, but here are a few that were snapped...


For my birthday, Josh gave me landscaping! I know that sounds so romantic...but it's really what I wanted! I've been wanting our back yard landscaped since the boys ripped out the decking a few years ago. Josh was so sweet and saved all the money he made from designing a website to give me this...


This area is really shaded so grass will not grow there. Eventually, we'll put playground mulch down when Lucy is old enough for a play set....
I love how everything turned out...it makes our little backyard look so much better! Thank you Josh!! A HUGE thanks to all of my family and friends who made me feel so loved and celebrated yesterday!! I am tremendously blessed and love you all! So long to my twenties...hello THIRTY!!!!!!!!
