So, a party happened and I was invited, but I didn't know it until we arrived, thanks to the trickery of Julie, Donya, my husband and everyone else who knew about it but kept it a secret (including Luke, who knew for three weeks that this was happening!).
I want to tell you all about it, but I'm busy and tired today (hello, long night of thunderstorm after thunderstorm) so that will have to wait until later this week, when I will hopefully have lots of fun pictures to share (including me covering my mouth and pointing at Shane and calling him a jerk). What I do want to tell you is that if the first day of my 30s is any indication of how the rest of this decade will be, it's going to be pretty amazing and full of blessings.
Thanks, Tommy, for the awkward hand placement. You know how to help your mom take a good photo.
