29 Years Around the Sun

October 08, 2012

I've been having a lot of conversations about age with the girls at work recently. Each one of us has come to the conclusion that we do not feel like our actual age. We all feel younger than we actually are: I feel like I'm 23 or 24, not 29.

I don't know if my job helps or not -- I work with preschoolers -- but I have always felt younger than I actually am. I enjoy things that people would not think appropriate for my age -- I love Disney World, and when I turned 25 we went there for my birthday...I went to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and got made up like a princess. My husband was super embarrassed, and I thought it was so awesome!

But, despite how young I feel, I am 29 years old today, and it is so strange for me. I can't believe how my life has flown by. That young girl in the first photo had no idea that at 29 she would be happily married to a wonderful man with whom she had a beautiful little boy to cuddle in her arms, and a job that she loves, with a lovely home that is warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Life takes lots of twists and turns, but as I prepare to enter the 30's -- said in a big booming announcer-type voice -- I know that my life is exactly where I want it to be.
