you’ve come a long way baby

To make myself feel better about turning 30 today, I looked back at some old photos of myself.  Wow!  It was pretty brutal.  I feel like I look younger today than some of my photos back then!  Take for instance this one when I was about 12.

From May 2009

Look at me!  I have shoulder pads, an old lady dress on, pearls and a straw hat with some shrub growing on it! And this was Easter day, so I probably really took the time to make myself look good!  (Don’t ya just wish someone told you to pluck your eyebrows when you were that young?)  Ha!

My dear daughter knew how to make me feel good today.  Rilyn told me, “Thirty isn’t old mom because it has a zero in it!”

My mom thought it would be so cute to make me wear this crown, wand, and necklaceshe bought me!

    I am curious to know when Rilyn thinks “old” really is. I am turning 34 in the summer – does she think “4” is not old 🙂 she needs to prep Halle in her thought process! Anyways, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!! Lots of love to my sweet friend on her special day!
