It starts just like a normal day, and yet it feels special.
I woke up quite early, with dozens of birds singing outside my window and sun shining on a spotless blue sky. The morning is perfect – I thought. And then I felt the baby kicking in my belly, like he’s trying to say “Happy birthday, mommy”. That put a wide smile on my face that doesn’t want to go away.
The celebration started yesterday, with beautiful flowers, gifts and non-alcohol bubbles. And a cake made for six, but eaten just by the two of us.
The achievements of last decade of my life brought me to where I am no. And I am a happy wife, a blessed mother to be and still a teenage girl in the deepest places of my brain, with the bright future in sight.
Happy 30th Birthday to Me.
