Sweet December, I swing my arms wide and fully embrace you.
You are the month I turn 30, the month of twinkle lights and hot drinks and fireplace snuggles, the month of board games and time off and what life is really about, the month of finishing strong and looking back and planning ahead, the month of baking and feasting and singing, the month of Christmas parties and date nights and reading books to Milly and New Years Eve anticipation and birthday fun…
Every year, you hold my favorite things and my favorite memories.
I have a feeling this year, you’re going to be extra special.
I’ll be 30 on New Year’s Eve, and goodness I am so excited. Not even a little bit sad about it! I love birthdays and milestones, and I’ve been so excited to embrace my 30’s. My 20’s were incredible, and full of hustle and growth and learning and doing. I have so many hopes for my 30’s. More of the same, yet… less. More doing, but I want my doing to translate into teaching, sharing, mentoring. A little less hustle, a little more time with my family. I never want to stop growing, learning, and reading. But I do want to slow down a bit.
More thoughts on my 30’s to come. For now, let’s focus on December! Because I’m not 30 yet!!
