I love having a summer birthday because: SUN. I have always had outdoor birthday parties: water parks, lakes, camping. For my 30th I took advantage of our friend Ruthy's pool! It was carnival themed, all based on a red and white striped bathing suit I got from Modcloth. I got Dan some red and white striped swim trunks on Ebay ($7!) and it was a hit. A very tacky hit. Because BB's swim trunks are red with white stars. Matchy-matchy! We served everything on a stick - hot dogs, fruit kebabs, caprese skewers. We ran out of food. Whoops! Never again, I promise, friends.

|The 30 Shirt!|
So, now I'm 30! It's a tradition in our extended family to pass down a "30" shirt and now it's mine! Honestly, I do feel older (people said I wouldn't) but I am very happy. We get to celebrate our 10 year anniversary this week and I am even more excited about that.
I am so thankful to everyone who came out to celebrate - especially those who traveled far and wide to be here. I really felt special. Cheers to 30!
