Day 1 - post 30th Birthday

If you haven't noticed birthday's are kind of a big deal to me. See, I love them. For some people New Years represents this BIG chance for change and promises but for me, it's my birthday. Something about a clean slate coming with a new year. Technically you could decide on any old day to make big changes, or even little ones, that are note worthy and special. But for me . . . it has always been my birthday.

My traditions used to be to clean the house on the 7th so that when I woke up everything would feel nice. Now I have added to have a manicure, so I can feel girly. Most importantly I am adding - to spend time with friends and family which will lead to my next blog: BEST BIRTHDAY EVER.

I hope everyone had a happy birthday this year - or will for those who it will hit in the next 4+ some days month. It's a great thing to have a chance at change and to really recognize it. And coming from a girl who REALLY cannot handle small changes in the day to day sometimes, that's a big statement.

I am a daughter, sister, friend, wife, counselor and colleague. I am a work in progress. There may be some pieces out of place and things might be messy, but it's okay. I would rather accept that I am still unfinished than think that this is it.
