Is it Spring yet?

I am seriously suffering from seasonal depression.  All this gray, dreary, bone-chillingly cold weather is making me bananas.  Add in the fact that I'll be 30 years old in about 8 days, and you've got the perfect mix of depression and more depression. 

Sometimes I feel like a failure.  Like, there are so many things that I want to accomplish and feel like if I haven't done it by now, I never will.  I guess this just isn't where I'd pictured I'd be when I thought of myself turning 30.  

But luckily I have some great friends who know just what to say to cheer me up. Like this awesome chick, who tells me to knock it off, but in the sweetest, most caring way possible: 

Thank you, Lindsay.  It's true, that I can list a million things that I haven't yet accomplished, but the things that I *have* accomplished are the most meaningful.  Taking the time to acknowledge how far I've come as a person helps get me out of my funk.  At least a little. :)

  1. Firstly, you're amazing.

    Secondly, I've been 30 since August and it's better than my twenties. Honestly.

    And Lindsay is right. You have accomplished a lot in your 29 years. You are a fantastic mother, devoted wife, phenomenal friend and above all? You as a person are more mature and beautiful than some 40 year olds I know.

    Happy almost Birthday, sweet friend. You're going to rock 30!

  2. I'll be 30 soon and I hear it only gets better from here on out. Keep your head up lady, there's still LOTS of time to accomplish so many things.

    P.S. Great giveaway!

  3. Ooh, I'd get clothes for sure!
    If it makes you feel any better, I thought you were younger :)

  4. Zip it! 30 isn't so bad. I will be 31 in April so you got me beat. You have a lot to be proud of but I know exactly what you mean. If my life had turned out the way I wanted it to back in the day, I doubt it would be even half as awesome. I'm sure it's the same for you too. We have some great looking kids, that's a definite!

  5. You are awesome and have accomplished so much!!!! Glad I could help you feel better. XOXO

  6. I need spring to be here too!!! My husband will be 30 in April and is also feeling similar, its okay you've accomplished so much you should be proud! Age is just a number pretty lady!

  7. Girl, you are going to rock 30!!! Don't doubt that!!!

  8. One you do not look 30...and if you are look amazing for it! Rock that shit!

  9. You've definitely accomplished a lot in your life!!! You are doing great. And seriously? 30! You don't look it!

  10. I concur with Lindsay. Get out of that funk Lady! You have SO much to be thankful for. If what you haven't already achieved is still important to you, you'll achieve it.

  11. I need the warm weather asap. And you have accomplished so much already, don't sweat the small stuff :)

  12. I'm itching for Spring, too!! Awesome giveaway too!

    Hope you're having a wonderful day!

  13. Seasonal depression sucks. Tanning beds help a lot. Just wear some sunscreen, ya hear?

    And about 30... I agree with all of the above statements. 2 kids. A husband. Lots of love. Those things spell success, not money in the bank, a McMansion, or a Rolls Royce. I think you're doing pretty darn well in life!

  14. I totally get the seasonal depression too; it sucks, but the good news is that spring is right around the corner! I think you're wonderfully accomplished for 30, you have an amazing, beautiful marriage and family! You should make a list of things you want to accomplish by 31 and make this the year you get to cross them all off :) xo!
