I am officially the big 3-0 and I must admit, turning 30 was pretty painless.  Of course, a trip to Las Vegas also helped me deal with the anxiety of getting older. (Please excuse the grainy, yellow pictures. I have better quality picture on my point and shoot but I cannot figure out how to get my picture off the camera. I will update the pics once I have the good ones.)
Having some of my closest friends there to help me celebrate also helped.

And my family, they were there, of course. They even found me a cake in Vegas (who knew?).
A fancy cake too.  With hand painted flowers.  And fresh fruit filling. 

Aunt Pam & Ray made it too!   Just in time for a limo ride and some flair bar action.
The whole weekend was perfect and there were several times during the weekend that I was overwhelmed with love.  
It sure is good to love and be loved..."all you need is love."

Welcome 2012

While I am always a little sad to see another year go, I must admit, I am kind of excited about what 2012 holds for us.  We don't have any real big plans, but somehow I have a feeling it will be a year filled with fun. Shoot, I turn 30, Addy turns 2, Tim turns 30, Alison is getting married...and who knows what else will head our way?
To celebrate the ending of one year and beginning of a new one, we were able to celebrate with our friends, Kelly & Shad, in Laguna Beach.  What a great way to end the year!  Spending time with great friends at the beach and relaxing for a few days.
Beautiful end to 2011
