my birthday

I am officially 30 years old! I’ve found myself quoting the line from the movie, Thirteen going on Thirty- “thirty, flirty, and thriving”!! Minus the flirty part of course- only with my husband! :)… but i like the fun reminder that 30 is young and thriving.

I had a wonderful time with my husband for my birthday. We actually celebrated last Friday. We went downtown and walked around Fayetteville St (such a fun street w/ shops, cafes, restaurants). We ate at Sitti, a Lebanese restaurant down there… omg, soooo good!!! We had coffee afterward, and just enjoyed being together!

Wesley got me this bracelet. I love it!! I found it on a friend’s blog recently (she’s such a fashionista! love it!), and immediately sent the link to Wesley, hoping he’d get it for me for my birthday. I love the vintage and organic look it has.

Yesterday, my actual birthday, was mostly a normal day filled w/ work and errands. I got so many phone calls, emails, and facebook messages wishing me happy birthday. I was overwhelmed at all of the relationships God has blessed me with! When I got home last night, Wesley was waiting for me, and had a song ready to play and sing that he had written for me. I want to figure out how to post it on here (he recorded it too) because it is sooooooo sweet and beautiful! I thought about posting the words, but it’s just so beautiful when heard with the melody that I don’t want to separate the music and lyrics. I am so blessed by him and his love for me!!

So, another year, another wonderful birthday, and soooooo many blessings! I am so grateful to my God and King, Jesus Christ for creating me and saving me. Yesterday, I was in Colossians 1, contemplating both creation and new creation… both are by Him and for Him- Jesus Christ, the hope of glory!!
