Celebrating 30!

So I turned the big gulp 3-0 just 2 weeks ago!  I decided that I needed to CELEBRATE leaving my 20's behind and entering into this new decade.  So celebrate is just what I did!!  You don't turn 30 every day (thank goodness) so I decided a themed birthday party was in order! My awesome friends here helped throw me one classy 'Red & Black & White' bday bash, complete with a chocolate buffet! Because what 30-year-old girl doesn't love to celebrate with chocolate!? :)

If you had told me at 23 when I arrived in Ukraine that I'd be celebrating my 30th birthday here, I might have had a hard time accepting that (especially if you told me I'd still be single!)-- but I look at the beauty that God has added to my life in my years here and I feel oh so blessed.  It's not what I would have imagined....it's better.  This life is a journey isn't it?  Each year learning more about myself, more about the Lord and more about how I need to trust him with every detail-- and celebrate what he is doing!!

Here is to the celebration....







Proud to be 30...and excited to serve God with the next 30 years!!
