{happy birthday to me}

On Tuesday I turned {{{hold on, let me catch my breath and muster up some courage here}}} . . . 24.  This is something that does not flow easily off the tip of my tongue.  It was a day in which I mentally struggled with the number {my number} that we all tend to measure and compare the successes + failures — and overall quality — of our lives with.

It took me the entire day to finally realize how much I have to look forward to in this year . . . one of the most wonderful things in a woman’s life will happen to me at the age of 24.  I have no choice but to embrace it and as I do, I am able to  look forward to the happiness that this change in my life will bring with it.



“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”

    Love you and im glad you had that realization that your going to get even more smoking hot the more years you gain onto your life.

  2. As I turn 50 (it really isn’t as bad as they make it out to be), I am surfing the blogs to wish special people like you a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY. May your 25th year be the very best year yet!
