Thirty is the New Fifteen

As of today - 9/10/11 - I am officially THIRTY. 30MG. When I went to bed last night, I was feeling kind of sad and scared about leaving my twenties behind. I’m over that - I feel like your twenties are practice for your thirties, where you really figure yourself out and things fall into place. If I look back on these thirty years, I have to say that I have so much to be thankful for and I have accomplished a lot of the things I hoped I would by this point in my life.

It also helps that I subscribe to the idea that thirty is the new fifteen - so talk to me about being an adult in another twenty years. Until then, I will be assing it up and avoiding any semblance of “grown-up-ness.” Cheers!

Sorry I had to grow up, Mom.

Extremely excited to announce that some of my stationery has been selected for the Weisman Art Museum (WAM) re-opening on October 2nd! If you’re in Minneapolis, you can find PaperMichelle wares in the shop! Watch out for another fun announcement in a day or two…

The Big 3-0 is Coming

It’s true. In a few short days, I will be thirty. THIRTY. I’m pretty much fine with it, since I feel like I’m about twelve. I just hate that OTHER people think thirty is old and that I should be settled by now. (They obviously haven’t heard - thirty is the new fifteen.) No matter what I think about the whole thing - it is a benchmark. Benchmarks are supposed to be celebrated with pretty clothes, right? I found these three stunners from Planetclairevintage - and any one of them will fit the birthday outfit requirement perfectly. Hint.
