turning 30 {updated}

[Updated 8/13: The giveaway is live HERE.]

In 6.5 weeks, I'll officially say goodbye to my 20s, and begin my 30s. A new decade, full of all new adventures, challenges, and fun. I honestly can't wait. For some people it is one of those big deal birthdays, something to be avoided and ignored. Not to me. I'm excited to close a chapter on an amazing decade of my life and see what the next one holds. In my 20s I started blogging, finished college, started working in "the real world," went to China, got engaged, bought a house, got married, visited 10 states, went to Ireland, went to Mexico, got 5 of my tattoos, redid much of our house, and had a beautiful baby girl. That's a lot of amazing stuff.

I'm looking forward to so many more amazing things in my 30s. Thirty isn't scary, its exciting!

In celebration I decided to have a big giveaway and give you presents for my birthday! So here's your official introduction to the A New Decade! Giveaway:

In the second half of July, and the first week of August I'll be doing some reviews to introduce you to my awesome sponsors and tell you about what they are giving away in honor of my 30th birthday. Then, the week of my birthday I'll go live with a big post spelling it all out and giving you lots of options for entries to win some great prizes.

There will be shoes: 

An awesome children's baby(doll) carrier:

And some sweet dryer balls for greening your laundry routine: 

I hope you're as excited for this as I am!
