And then I turned 30!


It's true, friends. Today I turn 30. For real? Wasn't I just in high school? How is this possible?! I guess you know you're getting old when you fully understand the phrase "time flies". Before I got all decrepit I saw my 20s out with a bang at a local Hollywood speakeasy, Next Door Lounge. Saturday I had a big birthday bash hosted by my awesome parents to mark the end of a crazy but wonderful, emotional yet fun, challenging and rewarding decade. Here are some party pics!


 
And a big thank you to Christina of Easily Entertained for sending me an amazing gift! I'm so lucky to have amazing blogger turned in-real-life friends!
