some things never change

Well, folks, it happened. This week, I turned 30, and hence “officially” became a grown-up. There are certain birthday milestones in life that are of more significance than others: 18 and 21 have been the big ones thus far, and 30 seems to have become the next major age hurdle in adult life. As we’ve gotten older, our lives start to resemble one another’s less and less. Many of my friends are married, some have children, some live abroad and some are living in the same towns they grew up in. My life seems to have meandered here and there, but I have much to be thankful for, and I can’t wait to see what’s next.

In the spirit of nostalgia and reflecting back on the last 30 years, here it is, photographic evidence that there have always been two great loves in my life: sugar and style.

My first birthday party. Interestingly enough, there are several other
photos of me through the years that look a lot like this.

Laying out my outfit for school (1987). Always a planner.

To the next 30,
