The cat is out of the bag: I turned 30 on September 10th.
and this is what I wore that day...
(dress: Zachary's Smile, boots: Frye from Johnny Sole, long black house coat: Folly, earrings: betsy & iya)
I was terrified that I would feel terrified when the day actually came. When the final moments ticked away and thrust me into a new decade... the truth--- I felt proud. I felt the way one must feel when they're celebrating 30 years of business, or when the Academy Awards celebrated their 30th year, or heck, Miss America. I felt like I'd earned it.
And here in Boulder, surrounded by young college students just beginning the decade I just finished, I can't help but feel more like myself than ever before.
I am Betsy. I am 30. And I am loving it.
Thank you to everyone who sent me such generous birthday wishes. The flowers, the gifts, the community, the love ...it goes such a long way.
Happy 30 to all of you!
