Okay so, my oldest sister is turning a Whopping 30 years old!!!! What I can’t believe she’s getting so OLD ha ha ha… that really means I’m getting OLD!!! Well, I wanted to get her an Awesome gift… But what to get? I debated and debated and then decided… I’m going to get her … 30 GIFTS!
Yep that’s right, 30 days of Gifts that lead up to the final gift being on her Birthday!
It took a lot of thinking.
A lot of organizing.
Help from the family.
Searching for the perfect gifts.
But, oh was it worth it! She loved it.
And it was so fun hearing what she would open each day… (of course I already Knew!).
It was special, funny, and meaningful and I’m so glad I did it. (I just need to start preparing NOW for my other siblings 30ths.)
