I've heard over and over again (and from very reliable sources, I'd like to add) that my 30's will be the best time of my life.  Oh yeah, give me some of that please.  I love the excitement that everyone has about this decade of life.  It's making the anticipation bubble and build inside me.

So – because I adore reading your comments about this big birthday – I want to crowdsource some more.  What advice do you want to share for a single, still-feels-so-very-young, someone about to leave her twenties behind? What was the best thing about turning thirty?

I'm already smiling as I type this in anticipation of your comments.
