This year, the 3 musketeers are turning 30. And by 3 musketeers, I mean myself, Mark and Tim. It’s a big year, 30. According to the Huffington Post, “if you’re going to make a major career change, move to a new city, run a marathon, or have an affair, you’re most likely to do it when you’re about to turn 30.”
So far, all of that is mostly true for us (minus the whole having an affair thing… not cool people, not cool). Mark and I have definitely encountered the whole major career change deal – me quitting my job, Mark looking for a new one. Tim has moved to a new city within the past year. And I am “training” for a half-marathon in September.
We’ve had a baby, refinanced a whole bunch of stuff, said good-bye to our beloved pet, quit jobs, started new adventures, found a new church home.
It’s been a crazy busy 29th year on the cusp of 30.
Naturally, to celebrate the twins turning 30 in July, we took in a ballgame at the K. Not just any game, though. It had to be the Cardinals. It had to be the I-70 series.
It was also the 30th anniversary of the 1985 World Series. So of course, it was the 1985 World Series Celebration day as well.
And no ballgame would be complete without their Dad coming with – his first visit to Kauffman.
30. 30. 30.
In 1985, the Royals won. But on this drizzly Sunday afternoon, the Cardinals closed out the 3 game series with a win, much to the Steiny boys pleasure.
All that to say, I think turning 30 is going to be great. We’re in places of our lives we never thought we would be and by the time we’re 40, I bet we will look back on our 30’s with much fondness.
Either way, we’re off to a great start.
