A week from today will be the last day I have as a twenty something. My twenties have been great, in fact I may just blog about that decade of my life but another time. When turning thirty was months or years away I imagined I would have a big surprise party maybe even something formal with fancy hors d'oeuvres carried around on trays, after baby was born the hors d'oeuvres became hot dogs and the trays turned to paper plate but a party non the less. As it grew closer and I seemed to grow farther away from friends I wanted nothing to do with any of it. What good is a party if you fear no one would show or you have to throw it for yourself? Now I am feeling some regret. Turning thirty is a big event and they only let you do it once (otherwise this would be my 26th birthday, part 4). Is it too late? Could we pull it off in a short amount of time on our budget? Would it matter to me in ten years? I haven't had a birthday party in years and have in the passed vowed to never have one because of previous attempts failing miserably. i need to make a last minute decision and hopefully not regret it either way. How important is turning thirty?
