Today, I turn 30.

It feels odd to be embarking on the start of a new decade on a ho-hum Tuesday morning. 29 was easily the hardest year of my life and I'm hoping 30 will bring some much-needed peace. It's weird to be celebrating my birthday in the midst of a season of grief, but at least this year marks a new beginning.

I hope this next year, this next decade, is full of laughter, friendship, gardening, writing, creating, and Jesus. Also, music!

You can find all of my old birthday posts that I've been compiling since I was 21 here. (I can't believe I've kept the Birthday Post a tradition for so long!)

Till next year,


  1. I'm so sorry 29 was so hard for you. I really hope this year will be much better.


Go with grace.
