Turning Thirty.

In honor of my birthday, I wanted to share these incredible pictures of the coolest 30th birthday party I’ve ever seen. I wish I could say these photos are of my birthday party but no, the credit goes to Sarah of Smitten Studio. This is her birthday party. I love the black, white and gold color scheme, the modern touches and the fact that the party is set in Palm Springs. But I think the coolest thing about these photos is that it’s a 30th birthday party. A pretty good reason to celebrate if you ask me.

I’ve been sitting here for a few minutes trying to figure out what to say about turning 30. Over the weekend, I psyched myself out, more than once, thinking about the fears and/or insecurities I have about aging. But now that it’s here, and I’m officially 30, I feel nothing but excitement. I’m actually kind of proud to be 30.

Thoughts on turning 30. I got a little teary eyed.
