Fall is my favorite season. I love the colorful leaves in the trees and on the ground. The crunch they make when you step on them. Riding my bike through them and watching them fly away. I also like the slight chilly air. I am a person who loves to be cozy. I love blankets and fuzzy things... Autumn is when I get to use all my favorites ... but still not be freezing my butt off!

Today is my very last day of my 20s. When I wake up in the morning I will be 30. What does 30 feel like? Well of course I do not know yet... And I do not think I will know... because I still feel the same now as I did when I turned 20 or even 19 for that matter. I have never had a Birthday bug me.. this would be my first.
I think it's because I have things planned for my early 30s. Starting a family is one of them. (It scares the heck out of me.) I totally want kids!! I am just scared to HAVE them. (You know the part where you go into labour and give birth.)
I know most people are not excited about that part.. but I seriously have probably worried about it since I was a kid. (Wishing I had been born a boy so I would not have to have a baby.) *I am not joking* I talked to my best friend this afternoon and told her how I was moody. She told me she was excited to turn 30 she could not wait. (She is a year older than me) I thought to myself.. "Of course she WAS excited.. she already had a baby!!" *HAHAHA*
So I suppose I will have alot of growing up to do and fear to get over in my 30s.
Why can't there be such thing as a Stork?
When I was a kid I wanted my ears pierced SO BAD. The problem was not that I was not allowed to get them done. I was too scared.
I used to have dreams I got my ears pierced. I was SO HAPPY!! Then I would wake up.. feel my ear lobes and NOTHING! I would really be sad. Sooo many times I would be at the mall with my Aunties and we would pass a salon and they would ask "Do you want your ears done today Melanie?" In my head I would be saying yes but I always answered no. Sometimes I even ended up in tears over it. Mom would explain to them that I really did want to have earrings but I was so scared it would make me frustrated to the point of tears. Well I am happy to let you all know that my ears ARE pierced. I finally got it done when I was 14. *lol* My Husband (At the time boyfriend) told me he would go get his done so I could watch and see that it wasn't so bad. Then we would get mine done after his. I watched him do it (Of course he never shows fear) So I sat down held his hand and finally after dreaming of it for yrs I did it. I probably would still be earring-less had he not did what he did.
