30 Rocks!!

Wow! What a special birthday...the PERFECT birthday!! This was a real milestone for me and the significance of it was humbling. I have fought to be here and it felt liberating to know that I am really beating the odds and hope and pray to continue to beat those odds!!

The day started with 30 gorgeous roses from Ryan...

Then, thanks to Grammy K. who took Harrison for the day, Ryan and I were able to head up north to Glen Ivy Hot Springs for a relaxing day of rest, sun, mud, amazing food and thanks to mom, a luxurious couples massage! It was truly heavenly and the best gift I could have asked for!

Then Ryan took me to my favorite restaurant in the Gaslamp for Persian Food. It was a delightful dining experience as we savored the flavors of our most desired food while we dreamed about the next 30 years!

To top the day off, we enjoyed our nightly bowl of sherbet while we watched the Office : ) Poor Michael Scott... I wonder how this new situation is going to play out!

Like I said, the perfect birthday! I am so excited for this next year and am expecting it to be the best year yet!

Damon and I are so excited for you to hit this milestone! What a strength you are!
I didn't realize that Ryan's birthday was the day after yours! Glad you had the most special of days!
I'm with you on the whole Office thing, and can't wait for next week. "How old are YOU?"...The show is so stinkin funny!
Anyways, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to both of you!!! Here's to 30 more wonderful years!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Wow, 30! I know you probably never thought this day would come, what a blessing!

God has blessed you in so many ways and I've been so thankful to be a small apart of your life. I still am hoping that one day we will finally get to meet in person!
So glad you had a great day! You deserve it!!

Just wanted to say a belated Happy Birthday!! I'll be 30 next year and I can't wait...not bad since they said I probably wouldn't graduate from highschool.
