This weekend I will mostly be…

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 15 - 2011

drinking practically illegal amounts of tea

marvelling at how much joy this one brings

doing a bit o’ cooking and baking…

…but resorting to cheese on toast when the going gets tough

reliving my past…

…enjoying the present…

…and welcoming the future as I hit the big 3-0 on Sunday.

Please tell me it’s not gonna smart too much?  I’m a little apprehensive!  Posting may be sporadic over the next few days and if it isn’t… I really do love blogging a bit too much.

Have a great weekend people, I’ll see you on the other side!

    Happy Birthday weekend! Relax…30 isn’t bad; I actually feel better about myself and life in general in my 30s than in my 20s. You’ll be fine! Loved the post btw. Have a lovely weekend. :)

  15. Geek Faerie says:

    Happy Birthday dear!! Just remember 30 is only the beginning!

  16. Happy Birthday to you and enjoy your day – 30 is the new 18! xoxo

  17. Chynna says:

    I was fine at 30 and had a harder time at 31. (But I was single with no kids, so you’ve already got a better start than I had. I had a full on Ally McBeal moment when a giant alarm went off in my head and I realized my biological clock was getting closer to crisis mode.)

    Anyway, my 30’s were better than my 20’s, so may it be the same for you. They really are great years!

  18. Rachel says:

    Happy birthday for Sunday. I was very apprehensive about turning 30 too but I had a wonderful day full of flowers and cake, it took the pain away! Am now apprehensive once again as I await turning 40 next year, would do anything to turn back the clock 10 years and do it all again and many of those things differently :(

  19. Paris B says:

    I love your photos so much! Turning 30 is a huge milestone and its a lot more fun and a lot less painful than you might think :) Happy Birthday and enjoy your weekend! :)

  20. Sabah says:

  23. Oh Charlotte, thank you as always for the lovely pictures. I hope you have an amazing weekend, and don’t worry about the birthday. You seriously look about 25. Who says you have to act your age? xx

  24. Rachel says:

    Happy Birthday! I love your adorable jars in your pantry. The tea looks delicious, what kind do you usually go for? I grew up on Earl Grey myself. Enjoy the weekend, and cake!!
