I thought I’d have a lot to show for myself at thirty. But while everyone else is buying their first home and planning a destination wedding, I can’t keep a houseplant alive.
Hailey is freaking out.
She keeps telling herself that thirty is just a number. But right now it doesn’t feel that way. It seems like everyone else spent the last decade partying up a storm, going on ten first dates a week and climbing the career ladder. While she’s spent her evenings at home on the sofa with Netflix, her high school boyfriend and has only just managed to decide what job she definitely doesn’t want to be doing for the rest of her life.
But all of that is about to change. Because life is too short to keep missing out. This year she will say yes to anything, no matter what it is, and then finally Hailey will have it all.
Turns out, this is easier said than done.
She’s been relegated to Assistant Number Two at her new job and is pretty sure her boss doesn’t even know her name.
There are four weeks left to get in shape for the marathon she’s signed up for and she can’t remember where she last saw her running shoes.
Then she finds something hidden in her boyfriend’s wardrobe. It’s platinum, sparkly and comes in a small velvet box. This should be the easiest yes she’s ever said, but are they really ready for this?
Saying yes sounded simple in practice. But it turns out Hailey still has some big decisions to make after all…
