I’m 30!  I’m….30?   I’m 30.

No matter how many times I say it, it doesn’t quite  sound right to me.    But, the clock does not lie, and as of February 15, 2013 I’m a 30 year old woman, complete with balloons on her desk, confetti, flowers, cards, lots of sweets, and a kick ass birthday party (with VIP wristbands for the bar!) thrown by a handsome gentleman and attended by special overseas guests.  I think it’s safe to say that I did 30 right.  Though the videos of me dancing might suggest there was a little room for improvement – or at least an acknowledgement that copious amounts of wine and swing dancing can be a dangerous mix!

A very handsome gentleman, and a fine dancer!

Some lovely ladies!

I have had such a ball the last few weeks.  In the beginning of the month I did the first of 6 weekends of yoga immersions, building up to a teacher training course later in the year.  It’s been amazing spending whole days with a group of people who have come from all over the country to participate and learn more about yoga.  I’m am so inspired, challenged, and excited to be a learning environment with homework assignments and background readings (I guess I’ll be giving the Bhagavad Gita another go round – it’s been a few years).   I am loving it!  I feel so blessed being able to make this a priority in my life.

Also this month, Rick’s brother, sister-in-law, and mom were all here visiting.  We surfed in Byron, climbed Mt. Kosciuzsko (the highest point in Australia down in the Snowy Mountains) and generally had a blast.  They made my birthday celebration really special.  His family makes me feel so welcomed and accepted – I love them!

And finally, I am in the throes of making final preparations for my upcoming trip to Vietnam!  I thought the trip might have been a bust when my best friend had to back out a few months ago. BUT, then I got a call from another good college friend who is heading down (up?) there for a wedding and wanted to travel!  Voila!  Perfect.  I love to travel with this guy.  We’ve done Australia, heaps of ski trips, and a few rounds of NYC visits – not to mention living together in St. Paul after college.   I can’t wait to see Vietnam with him and catch up on life.  I love the kid and I’m excited to wander around with him trying crazy foods and being geography nerds.

I don’t have a lot of time to write this – in fact I should be in the shower right now and/or on my bike headed to work.  I just felt I needed a quick update on life!

Below are some more recent fun pictures!
