Don’t go wishing me a happy birthday just yet, because the big day isn’t actually until Tuesday. But who doesn’t love an extended celebration…especially when it’s a milestone year? No, I’m not turning 30 quite yet, but this is the beginning of the LAST year in my 20s, which is a pretty big deal!
My husband and I celebrated my 29th birthday last night with an amazing dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, and my family and friends are getting together tonight for what has been dubbed Rachel’s “I’m Not 30 Yet!” Birthday Party. I’ll be spending my actual birthday in Austin, Texas — a fun little mother/daughter trip courtesy of my awesome mom.
28 has been a pretty amazing year, between launching my full-time biz, taking a few wonderful vacations, and seeing my family grow (I got a new niece earlier this week!). But I have a feeling that 29 might be even bigger and better, both professionally and personally.
Thanks for stopping by and taking part in my birthday festivities! I hope your weekend is filled with lots of great things, too!
Austin is great, you will love it! ;) And happy birthday!
That’s what I hear — I’m very excited! Thanks for the birthday wishes :)
Happy (early) Birthday, Rachel!
I think astrologically 29 is supposed to be a milestone year of some kind:)
I’ll think of you today as we celebrate my husband’s son’s 19th bday. Nineteen is big in BC because it’s legal drinking age…oh my…
We have a big tent being set up in our backyard and I’ll be spending the day decorating with lights and lanterns and tables for Evan and 35 of his closest friends. There will be BBQ-ing and beer, I believe.
So while I will think happy thoughts for you today…please pray for me:)
Thanks so much, Susan! And Happy Birthday to Evan — my thoughts and prayers are with you ;) You are a brave, brave woman…though honestly I would expect nothing less of you!
