twenty nine candles


July 17, 2012

today i turn a whopping twenty nine…lord please tell me it ain’t so! i can’t lie, i feel like i can’t be this old, like i should still be in college, running around the sorority dorm and spending my nights at the library tap room (tennessee peeps, i know you understand this), but apparently those days are long gone. i feel like i have done a heck of a lot of maturing this year, moreso than any other. i have learned what it’s like to put my needs aside for someone else. i have learned the value of true friendships and just how much family comes first. and most of all, i have learned that i am stronger than i sometimes give myself credit for.

twenty eight was one incredible year…not sure i can top it, and to be honest, i’m not even going to try. this year, i want to try to wave goodbye to trying to being so obsessive and sweating the small stuff…who cares if the house is a mess, or the laundry piles up every now and then, or if i have to wait a week or two to get a thank you card sent out? i want to savor each and every moment i can with my family and friends and take note of the little things. i want to simplify my life so that i can focus on what really matters and enjoy this year!

i am so excited to have dinner with a few of my closest friends tonight, nothing fancy, just our favorite pizza place and great company…i’m excited for all that’s to come so bring on the candles! ๐Ÿ˜‰

and as always, i want to say thanks for your continuous support and dropping by, even if it’s just to check up and say a little hello! it means the world to me friends.
