Happy Ever Birthday.....

Turning 30 was the best.
Thirty, Flirty, and Thriving!
I have been saying that all day.
For those of my friends and family who are about to turn 30, it is the best.  Such a powerful and beautiful age to be.  And such a fun birthday!
So my fairytale 30th birthday went like so...
I woke up and my husband made me a small breakfast because he knew I would be treated to a delicious lunch out with a beautiful sister in law.  Tasia came over at about 11:00 and we went out.  No kids, no husbands.  Just girls.  It was perfect.  We traveled around and ran into a beautiful little cafe on the corner of a beautiful street.  I ordered grilled chicken wings with a balsamic salad, Tasia got the Gnocci with parmesan and tomato sauce.  We then discussed the book Jane Eyer, wich I am currently reading (for the second time, yes, it is THAT good).  I love Jane's passionate personality and her love for what she believes is her soul mate, I can relate with Jane, she is my fictional hero I believe.  While discussing Jane Eyer, someone at a near by chocolate shop was playing piano music out it's window panes.  Could I be any more blessed. Thank you Tasia for watching my kids all day and taking me out to an unforgetable afternoon.
Bryce took me over the "old bridge" and he gave me my birthday letter which is my favorite part of any gift he gives me.  I read the letter with tears in my eyes and just felt sooo overwhelmed with gratitude from my Heavenly Father for giving me such an amazing husband.  Bryce asked me three questions, (which I love questions), one of the questions he asked me was, "How have you been able to stay in love with me for this long?"  I thought about it and answered."I decide to look at you how God looks at you, everyday."  I get overwhelmed with how much God loves my husband, that it makes my heart melt and my sould swell. 
We then walked over to the Castle and WOW!  I loved it.  I felt like a midevil princess walking through the castle gardens and walls.  The view was breathtaking. 
Afterwards we went to a restaurant called La Enchilada.  I really wanted some mexican food,  it wasn't the best, but being in a country where it is scarce, it was delicious and fun.  We got gelato afterwards and it was delicious.  Let's just say that lemon basil gelato has my heart.  MMMM.....  There were fireworks over the bridge and love in the air.  Oh and I can't forget, we watched master chef and he bought me a bike and a double bike trailer.  Pretty big presents. 
30 Years on this earth and I can't wait for the next 30.
Birthdays are the best.
