My letter to thirty

Dear Thirty,

Since you and I have no choice except to coexist, I'd like to set up a few ground rules. I'm more than willing to play nice, but it has to be on my terms. Please be advised of the following conditions:
1) I'm pretty much over the gray hair. I get the point, no need to increase the supply on your watch.
2) I'm willing to work out 2-3 times per week and give at least minimal thought to eating better - in return I'd like an increase in metabolism and muscle tone.
3) I'm getting older - you know it and I know it, but does the whole world have to know it? Let's hold off on the wrinkles.
4) Take your time and stay awhile - I'm in no hurry to meet thirty-one.

Thank you,
Jeanelle

Dear Jeanelle,

Uh, you don't make the rules. I do. And, I don't have to play nice.

Happy Birthday,
Thirty

Good luck with that. I'm finding that 32 is much more of a bitch than 30 was. Something to look forward to.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday and welcome to the 30 club. It really isn't so bad, although this gray hair things needs to layoff for at least 5 years or so.

Hey, at least you can say Evan is giving you the grays, I have no excuse!

Happy 30th!! I hope you have a great birthday! 30 hasn't been so bad - other than the gray hair and slow metabolism, but I really had both of those in my late 20's too ;) I'm "lucky" enough to be meeting 31 this weekend.
