Menu Plan–February 3

The one where I turn 30. 

And, the one where my best friend from High School gets married on my 30th birthday! 

One would think I would not be ready for this birthday, but I am. 

I am super thankful for all the amazing things that happened this decade:

  • getting a college degree,
  • moving to Michigan,
  • meeting my husband,
  • traveling & living in Alaska,
  • developing life-long friendships,
  • finding my true calling and passion,
  • staring this food blog,
  • standing in the northern & southern hemisphere at the same time,
  • traveling north of the Arctic circle in the same year as being on the equator,
  • getting married,
  • buying our first home,
  • getting my PhD, and
  • obtaining my first faculty job at my dream institution. 

But, I’m ready for a new decade. 
A new leaf.
Waiting in hope for the awesome things God has promised.
