The Big 3-0

March is almost over. And that means the end of another birthday month. This birthday month was a bit more celebratory than in past years; apparently, hitting the big 3-0 is great reason to celebrate. As I look back at all of the birthday wishes from the month, these are the ones I'd like to remember:

"If 50 is the new 30, then 30 means you just hit double digits!"

(Maybe this is why I don't feel nearly as old as I always imagined 30 to be.)

"It's best to take birthdays with a few grains of salt… preferably around the rim of a margarita glass."

(After chocolate milk and water, margaritas are my next favorite beverage. Our lifestyle — kids and cows — doesn't include many nights out, so the margarita's third place finish is a distant third place. But I did enjoy a couple for my birthday!)

"Some birthdays are more meaningful than others because they remind us of where we've been, what we've learned, and where we've yet to go."

(Enough said.)

"May the next 30 years be the best years of your life."

(I think this one was borrowed from a country music song. But it speaks volumes. There's so much figuring out to do in the first 30 years; I imagine I'll always be trying to figure something out, but I believe it will be a more peaceful figuring.)

Here's to the next 30 years! (I'm raising my glass of chocolate milk!)


  1. Happy be-lated birthday! Enjoy each day as the next 10 years will fly by!!

  2. Happy Birthday I really enjoy your posts, especially when you talk about some of the challenges we all face on a dairy farm. Somedays misery likes company!
