So guess who is about to enter the excitement that is "the 30's"?
Yep - on Friday I will be waving bye-bye to my twenties.
Wow were my twenties a ride.
Got married one month after I turned twenty.
Had my first children one month before I turned twenty-two.
I've pretty much had my heart won over,
pieced back together,
in my twenties.
Not a decade that I could ever take lightly or forget.
Is it weird that I am excited about turning thirty?
I don't know, it's just neat for me to look back,
see this scared,
and the chasm there is now between who I was, and who, by God's grace, I am now.
And really, what's a birthday without gifts, right?
I'm going to be giving away a $5 Starbucks gift card and a really great book!
The book is called "For Women Only" by Shaunti Feldhahn.
Let me tell you - this book has really changed the way I view men, and has greatly helped the way I relate to my husband! Whether you are married or single, this is a wonderful book in giving insight into the guys God has put into our lives.
It isn't just a woman writing her opinion on the subject. Shaunti conducted a national survey - interviewing thousands of men, helping us to support and love them the way they wish we knew how to.
I have to admit, I resisted reading this book for a couple of years. A man's mind can be a scary thing. :) Really, it can be, but I am so glad that I finally read this eye opening book!
I will be giving one copy of this book away, along with the gift card, to a randomly chosen commenter from this post.
Simply leave a comment and you will be entered to win!
This give away will be open until Saturday evening. I was going to close it on the actual day I turn 30 - but that day is far too packed full with all of the fun that entering a new decade can entail.
The dearest friends,
the most delicious food,
A night without kids.
Yep, the winner choosing will just have to wait. :)
And no, I am not being paid for this at all. It's simply a book that has proven very beneficial to my marriage and I highly recommend it.
And you all know how I feel about coffee. -Just a few of my favorite things.
