I was born at exactly 2:00 am 30yrs ago!

Today I bid my 20's goodbye and welcome my 30's with open arms!

I like to think of it this way:
 I'm not 30, I'm 18 with 12 years experience.

Footsies rocked - they still do!

Daddy' lil super-girl!!

Mami's lil girl

My 6th Birthday

I have no idea what's going on with my hair :)

Junior high school = bangs and suede black boots!
My Birthday Sundae - My last day in my 20's 
It's been a blast celebrating my birthday week, which has included ferry rides,
lunch with friends, pampering myself with a manicure/pedicure, and eating
at a diner and having the entire staff come out and sing me Happy Birthday with
a birthday sundae :)

Today as I celebrate my big 3-0 with my family I will give thanks to God
for my everyday blessings, especially for blessing me with one more year of life to
be able to enjoy whats most dear to my heart
- my family-

I will make sure to make a wish as I blow out my candles - we all know wishes do come true!
After all I did find true happiness :)

Can't wait to come back with more pictures and details from my birthday celebration!

Thank you loves from the bottom of my heart for the beautiful birthday wishes, and especially
 my two beautiful sisters Micaela  & Marz for making this day oh so special!
I love you!!!!!!

This is my year I can feel it!!!

Kary xoxo
