2012: The year of the Dirty 30.

It's official.  2012 is the year in which 80% of my friends turn 30. 
Everyone I grew up with - friends from elementary school, high school, college.  (Me too. )
It's daunting, 30, for some reason.   Growing up in the 80's I had a much different picture of where I would be at 30.  Not that I dislike where I am now at all, but when I think about my mom turning 30 and already having 3 kids, sometimes that clock gives a little tick ;)

At least the fun part of this year will be a lot of parties.  The first of them was this past weekend, a surprise party 3 weeks late for D.  Here are a few fave pics. 

First off - check out the view from their condo! My city <3

The 'cake' was a pile of persians - which are unique to Thunder Bay, and were flown in as a surprise with D's sister.  I should dedicate a post to those desserts soon - I need to crack the recipe. 
Think cinnamon bun/donut with raspberry frosting....
If you talk behind the glass no one will know.  ;)
Happy Birthday D!

How old are you and your friends turning this year? 
Does 30 seem daunting to you?

  1. Maybe I'm just naively casual about it, but 30 doesn't feel that daunting to me. I'm pretty happy with my life and the track I'm on right now, and I think I've *finally* learned not to overthink every damn thing.

    Also, it helps that my 30th is almost two years off yet. ;)

    (Really wish I was around for the parties this year, though.)


thank you for leaving a comment! i love to know what you think :)
