Getting Older...

Friday, June 22, 2012

This weekend, my best friend is coming up from the city for Birthday Celebrations! Her birthday was yesterday, and my birthday is coming up next Sunday.  We are going for pedicures, a boat tour, beach-time, and a fancy dinner out.  I can't wait.  It's been so long since I had a day like that!  And, I miss my best friend so much, it's the one thing I hate about being away from the city...

I feel like this birthday is a big birthday. I'm going to be 29.  For some reason, to me, this seems scarier than 30.  Twenty Nine is the last year of my twenties... I love my twenties, I have to make the most of it!  It's been the best time of my life... though it does seem to be getting better, the older I get.

I've learned a lot of important lessons in my twenties... Like, nothing is carved in stone.  Life is beautiful, but momentary and fleeting.  Don't live life the way you think people expect you to, live the life you want.  Hard work is worth it.  And, money really does not buy happiness.

Twenty Eight has been an awesome year, and I have accomplished a lot!  I got married - I never wanted to get married, but I loved my wedding and I love being married.  I bought a house - my dream house, old and slightly falling apart but with lots of character and hidden gems.  My business grew, and I feel like I'm right in the spot where I should be.

So, I am very excited the meet the last year of my twenties, excited to see the beginning of my thirties and what they have to hold for me.  I'm very grateful to all of you who have helped me through rough times with your lovely, heartfelt comments, and cheered me on during the highs.  It really does mean a lot to me!

  3. Happy early Birthday! I hope you and your friend have a lot of fun celebrating together. I've just entered my twenties, but I have heard a lot of my older friends saying that getting towards thirty (as they turn 26/27/28) is so much better than when they were just turning twenty. I hope that's definitely the case for you as well!
