The Dirty 30.

One day you wake up and suddenly you're 30 years old.

That happened fast.

Turning 30 is kind of a big deal. 30 is the benchmark for adulthood. No more 20s. 10+ years out of high school even though it doesn't seem like it was that long ago.

Hmm, suddenly making myself feel old.

I'm happy to be here. Happy I've made it to see 30. And very happy I have a wonderful wife and wonderful mother who had the great idea to help me celebrate.

I seriously couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Started out with gorgeous weather and time well spent at the driving range with 2 of my best friends - my brother, Reuben and my brother from another mother, Johnaustin. The range has become a fun place to go to for killing time, thinking, and trying to capture that elusive perfect swing. Good times with good friends, doesn't get any better.

Next it was party time. And again, couldn't have asked for anything better. Friends and family all gathered at VBGB to eat, drink and celebrate. I didn't want a huge event. Didn't need tons of gifts or all the attention. I just wanted to hang out with some of my favorite people.

I ended up getting some pretty sweet gifts too! Apparently I've done a fantastic job letting everyone know I'm a big fan of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and the Ninja Turtles. But my favorite gifts were the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack on vinyl and… a new vacuum. (What can I say, I like a clean floor.)

To those who were unable to be with me and sent messages through text and Facebook, thank you so much. It actually does mean so much to me to get those messages. And to everyone who came and celebrated with me, I can not thank you enough. I genuinely love you all.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
