I turned 30 last weekend. I partied in a way that might not fly when I’m in my 30s. And I recovered in a way I hope to continue to do well into my 90s.
Behold the perfect party:
Casual – Friday night drinks at a bar. A facebook invite and a five hour window to drop in. 10 people or 100 people could have turned up and it would have been fun.
Collaborative – Laura was turning 25, I was turning 30. Milestones! We hosted together which makes a party so much nicer.
Cross-pollination – not like actual cross-pollination (ew), but a whole lot of people from different parts of life, all got together and mingled! What a relief – nothing worse than a party divided up like post-soviet nations.
And now to make turning 30 even better:
On Sunday (the actual date of my birth), sisters and mother took me to Peninsula Hot Springs for some relaxation care of earth (and the clever people who got that lovely water from under the ground and into these lovely baths).
And then we ate:
Perfect 30th birthday – check!
