Thirty Something

It is official, I have now entered the thirty somethings!  Okay to clarify I am now into my thirties--31.  To this I say WOW, not because I am mortified to be getting older (because I'm not), but simply because I just really can't believe it.  In my heart of hearts I feel about ummm...26.  I realize that I am no longer in the youthful days of college, but to be in my thirties well that just doesn't seem quite right.  However with that being said, I embrace you 31!  My life at 31 is wonderful!  I love my husband--we have almost been married 8 years, crazy!  I love my boys--Judsen 4 and Brodee 8 1/2 months.  I love that I get to stay home with them and take a break from teaching.  I love my home that we built a little over a year ago.  I love my friends and family!  I love my church! I love the Lord and well... I just love where I am in life. 

See how the little hairs up front stick straight up!
But, and this is a big but, what I don't love...gray hairs.  That is right you heard me and I'll say it again gray hairs.  Where in the world did these little buggers come from and when did it happen.  How can I have none one day and then BAM, like a slap in the face 15.  Now friends I will be sharing photos so you can see what I am talking about, but not only do I have, the oh so wonderful pleasure of having gray hairs I also have baby hairs.  You know the hair that starts to grow back after you lose half of your head of hair to post pregnancy hormones.  These hairs are small, fine, they stick straight up, and now added to the list....gray!  To this I say why?!?  Have no fear dear friends these hairs are not embraced, welcomed, invited, or for that matter allowed to stay.  They will be gone just about as fast as they were first found, but the reality is that they are there.  Thank you mom and grandma's! 

I am sure that there will be many more little joys that come with getting older, but I am also excited for what each day brings.  I look forward to what God has ahead for me and my family!  So if that means a few more gray hairs then I say--bring them on (let's be honest they will be covered in dye anyway)!  Life is good and every year I live is one year closer to meeting Jesus!
