The Big Three-Oh

I really don’t know what to write…

I was going to list off things that happened the year I was born or events of this date in history.  I did a little searching and discovered Apple was founded April, 1 1976 and Google was born September 27, 1998.  But beyond learning that and a couple other interesting facts, I decided it wasn’t worth the effort.

I’ve been thinking about where I am now and where I expected to be at this point.  I can’t say that I’m exactly where I wanted to be.  Mostly it’s the job. I thought I’d be a writer, an astronaut, or possibly doing something with animals – not sitting behind a desk 10 hours a day.  I would have liked to travel more by this point, taken more risks, feel that I had more interesting stories to tell and hidden knowledge to share.  At the same time, I don’t think I’d do anything differently were I given the opportunity.  I love Ari and Simeon and can’t wait to see how my family grows.  I enjoy spending time with my friends and, after a reading a few birthday wishes and seeing people last night, know that I’m lucky to have them in my life.  I’m willing to take some risks, but not if that means missing out on family and friends.

So, here’s to the future and whatever is to come.  I look forward to the next 30 years and the 30 beyond that.  And most of all, I look forward to spending it with family and friends – past, present and future.

Birthday Shout Out
A few days early, but Happy Birthday Mike K.! (Granted I’m adding this a couple days late :s)
