30-for-30

It happened. I made it through my 20s and today I’ve reached 30 years old. I’m not one to worry about growing older; in fact, I welcome it as with age comes experience and knowledge, or so I hope. My 20s were such an exciting time. I started PurseBlog and PurseForum when I was 21, graduated college, got married, moved to New York and experienced a lot. Growing up never ends, and neither does experiencing life, so I’m excited to welcome my 30s and whatever they bring.

Ok. Uplifting thoughts aside, yikes, I’m 30.

To celebrate, here are 30 items with which I’d love to kick off this new decade of life, from new bags to shoes to beauty items, let’s get the party started for the next 10 years.

    Happy birthday Megs! Thank you so much for all the time, love and fun you put into this blog. I’m sure I speak for all of your readers in saying how much I appreciate it. BTW, life really gets going at 30 — you’re old enough to know better, but not too old to go ahead and do it anyway! Best wishes to you.
