About

On July 8th, I turn thirty. 


The Big 3-0. 


Three decades. 


Old? 


I’ve noticed that many of my friends have been going into severe panic mode at the thought of leaving their twenties.  Me?  I’m excited!  I love birthdays and what better time than a three-decade milestone to get out there and celebrate all the things I love?!


Why thirty days?  

Well, because it makes for a catchy title: Thirty Days of Turning Thirty.  And one month seemed like an appropriate amount of time to celebrate.


Does this mean my sixtieth will be celebrated for sixty days?

Perhaps.


How did I decide which days would make up the celebration?

My dad’s birthday is June 27th.  I didn’t want to take away from his day and I wanted my birthday to be in the middle of the thirty-day celebration.  Therefore, the festivities start June 28th and finish up July 27th.


Is there something scheduled for each day?

While I will being doing at least one thing to celebrate each day, I do not have something scheduled every day.  I have a list of simple things that make me happy to fill in the days without “official” plans.  For example, one fine day, I will get comfy on the couch and recite every line to Clueless as I watch it for the 746th time.*  


Is the celebration limited to thirty-year-olds?

Heck no!  Of course, my thirty-year-old boyfriend, Jim, will be around for most of the celebrations, but so will my four-year-old hound dog, Marshall Dillon!  And many friends and family.  See?  Young and old alike will gather together to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of my birth!


So, what exactly do I have planned?

Stick around and find out!
