30 Facts About Me



I have officially been the big 3-0 for almost 2 weeks now. At first I was a little depressed about turning 30, but now I'm learning to embrace it. I might as well accept it because I can't change it.  I still don't feel my age though, most of the time I still feel like I'm a teenager. Life has not been easy at all my last 30 years, sometimes it has been just plain hard and full of a lot of heartache. However, I am still very blessed. God has always been good and faithful to me.  I have a wonderful God that I serve, an amazing family, a wonderful husband who is also my best friend, and an amazing son that is the light of my life and also my whole world.  God has blessed me far more than I deserve. So with that being said, I want to share with you 30 facts about me now that I am 30.

Now for the list in no particular order...
