I remember the trauma of turning 30! It might have been the hardest "0" ending birthday. Since then, because life just continued despite the momentous change in me lol, I think 40 and 50 were not as traumatic. Happy birthday, and we celebrate your birth and joining us on this journey through life! LeeAnna
