Today, I officially enter my thirties. Am I sad at the passing of my twenties? No. If I get nostalgic, I can live vicariously through my husband, who will be in his twenties for another four years. However, I really don't think that I'll need to do that.
Not that I'm rejoicing in my old age, but I feel like I've earned the right to pass out of my twenties. I mean, I spent a solid ten years being in my twenties. Time for a new adventure!
With that said, I've decided to do a few things. First of all, I moved my blog. (This is obvious, as you are here right now.) I like how this site looks, feels and handles my information. Besides, I'm a grown up now. Grown ups can choose to not use Blogger anymore if they want to.
Secondly, I've decided to alter the focus of my blog a bit. My blog has always been a "Mormon Mommy Blog". While there is absolutely nothing wrong with this, I find myself occasionally wanting to write about my take on issues and events, or to offer up some self-reflection. I've noticed that, when I do this on my Mommy Blog, I get little to no feedback. I'm guessing that it's because the people who come to my blog want to read about James and the adventures that we have together. (Don't worry, he'll still make plenty of appearances.) However, I'm not "just a mother". Even though being a mother is the best gig in town, there is a whole lot more to me than that. I was a pretty awesome person before I was a mom and still think that I'm the same awesome person with thoughtful insights and ideas.
I've also decided to make a few goals for myself -- sort of like a What I Want to Accomplish During My Thirties bucketlist. I'm still working on what it will entail, but I'll post more when I decide how I want to go about this.
That's about all I have for now. Stay tuned for more fabulousness.
