The Big 3-0!

Totally wrote this forever ago but didn't ever upload the pictures for it...until now.  Doing some serious house cleaning on my "draft" box. :)
Someone sneaked right out of bed and joined the party.
I can't say I blame him :)
So, I turned 30 a couple months ago.  Unlike the years between 22 and 29, which are all fairly anticlimactic, 30 seems to be the age when society deems you older-ish, or at the very least, a real adult.  I still feel like I should be in my twenties, but when I see college students I wonder why they look so young...until I realize, it's really that I look old. :)  Regardless, I feel so blessed with each and every day that God has given me.  I could not be happier to be married to my soul mate and to have two beautiful children.   

We had a couple celebrations to commemorate the big day. A bunch of friends, as well as my sisters and Dad, came over for an adult party at our house. We had a great time, and it was nice to catch up with some friends that we haven't seen for awhile.
Best of Friends since 7th grade.  Reason 573,834 I love Colorado. 
My Dad is pretty great.
It has been years since all three of my sisters have been in the same place to celebrate my birthday.

Old friends. 
Thomas mentored Luke when he was at Seton Hall,
he was a fellow missionary during my years with FOCUS
...and he introduced me to he is pretty awesome.
Then a couple days after my birthday, several members of Luke's family {7 to be exact} came to Colorado to join in on the party.  It was nice to have both sides of our family together for a couple of dinners while they were in town. 
The Vercollone gang--Luke's parents and five of his siblings.

Seriously was just planning on taking a boring picture of our game playing when...
When you have that many candles, you need some help blowing them out :)
My top three goals for this year are to:
1)  Grow spiritually.
2)  Grow as a Wife and a Mom.
3)  Grow a baby!! :)
