If you would have asked me a few years ago what I thought about turning 30, I would have told you I was dreading it.

I loved my twenties. I graduated from college, found and married my soulmate, moved up the ladder in my career, discovered my love for photography, started a legitimate business…

I was comfortable. For the most part, life came pretty easy to me in my twenties…

Until 29. When I had no idea that this was the year everything would change for me.

Dave Ramsey says that on average, people experience a devastating or disastrous life event about every 10 years. For some people it’s more often, and for some it could be less. And what “devastating” means to one person is completely different than what it means to others.

For me, 29 was my devastating year. It might surprise some of you to hear that, because of what you’ve seen or read on social media, AKA, my highlight reel. But I’ve struggled these last 9 months more than I ever have in my life.

But turning 30 years old yesterday left me with a surprising feeling. Not one of dread or disappointment like I thought I’d experience, but of growth and excitement. Through the struggle and pain and sadness of the past 9 months, I’ve discovered more about myself than I have in the last 10 years. About what I need for my life, my priorities, what makes me feel like “me”. It’s given me direction and changed my life map drastically, which is terrifying, but I’m also excited to see that unfold.

Celebrating my birthday is something I always look forward to and although I once imagined my 30th birthday being a big “bash”, I decided that’s not what I needed this year (and couldn’t have if I wanted to!) Instead, I found peace and comfort in spending a weekend at a cabin on the lake with a few close friends. I spent more time in the moment than document our trip, but did pull out my camera a few times, so here are a few highlights from my birthday getaway! Enjoy šŸ™‚
