This is me on my first birthday. I was examining one of my birthday gifts. The doll was almost as big as I was. I turned thirty today. Wow that feels odd to be typing that in. Thirty. When I was a little Ani in elementary school I tried hard to try to imagine what being 30 would be like. What the year 2005 would be like. So many things from then and now have changed obviously. I grew up and out. LOL. Moved from one country to another, made new friends, let go of friends, graduated from different schools, met the most wonderful man in the world, fell in love and am happily married for a little over three years to him. Time does really pass by very quickly. I honestly began to notice that when I was as young as nine. I was crying at my birthday party because I knew that I would have to grow up and things would have to change. And honestly even though a lot of things have changed. I have to be responsible for a lot, many things besides myself. I don't feel any older.
