It's a great day to have a birthday today! Today is the big 2-9 for me and possibly the age I will stay frozen at forever. You only turn 29 once right?!? ...and then again every year for the rest of your life?
I guess we'll see about that next year. I'm sure I'll continue to own up to my age, but this year is the first year I'm struggling a bit. I know it sounds silly but, until now I always felt like the young one. Soren turned 30 four years ago, so it's always felt like I'd be in my 20's forever. That time is coming to a close this year. And I'm feeling weird about it, but looking at everything else in my life- that's not a bad thing!
It just feels strange to be settling it at the mom-middle-age-phase of life. But that isn't fair because I don't think that about any of my friends who are in their 30's or 40's!
I'm realizing we all still feel like teenagers no matter how old we get. AND that just proves that numbers are dumb and we shouldn't give them any thought. How much we weigh, our age or our pants size don't measure anything that is real or actually matters in life.
What really matters to me this year is that my boys are happy and learning and growing up to be amazing young men. I have a baby on the way that will only add more joy to our family. Soren and I are getting along better than ever- and that's counting the entire almost 9 years we've been married. And I have so many wonderful women that I can say are my good friends- more than ever in my life.
Thank you for such a great year and for continuing to support and follow along with our family. I feel so honored to be part of your life and honestly humbled if/when anything I say (or wear) helps or inspires your life. That's my goal and it blesses me so much to hear about it from you.
So who cares how old I am turning because today I'm just happy for the lasting and substantial blessings God has put in my life. And is what I want in my heart all year!
Have a great Thursday! I wish I could share my birthday apple pie with you!
Oh, and one more thing! I'm so excited to share with you that because it's my birthday, I pulled some strings and we brought back the N&S Leopard Sweater Scarf a few weeks early! This scarf is my favorite in my collection and it is a must have for your Fall closet. You can shop it here today!
