I was born.
It is really hard to believe that I am 30 years old -- it sounds old, but I don't feel old. I always hear that your 30's are the best, so I'm looking forward to making the most of them!
I just thought it'd be interesting to share a few facts about the year I was born:

Last night my family had a wonderful dinner for me since my mom's going up to Utah today to see our new baby in the family -- Ryder H. Hendrix. Tyler and Gina's fourth little boy who was born in the early hours of Sunday morning. We're still waiting for pictures.
Dinner was fabulous with steaks, mashed potatoes, Italian Sodas, and my all-time favorite strawberry-spinach salad which I will have to post a recipe for later because it's truly fabulous! Dinner was topped off with a strawberry/cheesecake/gelato cake - yum! Good food and good company made it perfect and Amy even got me the cookbook I've coveted for months.
Every time she makes something amazing it seems to have come out of this book and I'm so excited to have my own! If you love to cook, you should pick one up!
