30 Going on 13.

"Let's face it. We're getting older." I keep hearing this phrase over and over again. And it's coming from people in their early and mid-twenties! The other one I hear a lot is, "Wow. You look really good for your age!" GOOD for my AGE?!?! It's not like I'm on Medicare! Am I the only one who thinks 30 is not old?

Can I take a moment and rejoice in the realization that- at 30- I'm done! WE are done! Think about it. I mean, this is IT. THIS is what we look like; this is your body, and this is pretty much how we'll be until we get old. Isn't that fabulous? You see, the 20s were unpredictable. The "Freshman 15," the slowing metobolic rate, the laughlines...Been there. Done with that. Botox and lipo shouldn't be a concern until we're 60, and by then, I really hope none of us cares anymore. So if this is IT, I think we should be pretty darn happy about being 30.
Quite frankly, I haven't felt this good about myself since I was 13.

Eat THAT, Jennifer Garner.
Give me 20 years more and you'll probably find me HERE.

ps-
Yes. I do have that coat the little girl on the right is wearing. And I use it. Often. In public. And I don't even care that I got it from the children's department.

But the first breeze off the Long Beach Airport plane was- how do you say?- A BREATH of FRESH AIR!!! Hallelujah! I'm HOME!
