On Turning 29

Well, I'm official 29 today. TWENTY NINE. Still not totally sure how/when that happened but sure enough, I have started the final year of my 20s today. I'm definitely not freaking out over it, honest to goodness I'm not. Though it sounds weird to say I'm now 29 years old, I feel great and know life is moving in the right direction- what more could a person want?!
New Girl fans- I've been waiting forever to be able to use this GIF ;)
I haven't made much of my birthday this year, especially compared to year's past- but I think that's because I've been so busy celebrating our baby on the way to even think about myself. This little healthy boy is really the only gift I need! I'm content to just spend an evening with Jared like any other night, although he's already been spoiling me :) Plus my family and friends always find sweet ways to celebrate with me and make me feel special on this day, too. It's nice to feel the love and I appreciate all the well wishes.

Part of me feels like I should have some big, profound post to write today. This pivotal moment in my life... a birthday, a baby on the way, the final year of my 20s. But guess what? I don't! I'm really just thankful for another year, thankful for the millions of ways I've been blessed in the past 365 days and excited about what another year will bring. Each year is filled with so much goodness and so many happy memories- I'm just excited to start another year that is sure to be filled with the same! So today, I'll just be happy. I'll just soak in today for what it is, laugh a little more and enjoy a free birthday treat or two along the way ;)

Cheers to 29!

  3. Happy birthday! I loved being 29 and my thirties have been even better. You've got a busy year ahead of you, but I did a 30 by 30 list and loved it during my 29th year.

    Enjoy the day and year ahead!

  15. Happy Birthday! I felt the same way around my 29th and even 30th birthdays. (I'll be 31 in June.) I know plenty of people who freak out about 30 or 35 but when you have got this life full of amazing people and memories, who cares about the actual age? I hope you enjoy your evening with Jared. Just think about how different next year will be with a 10-month old!? Yay!

  21. Happy, happy birthday, sweet friend! I hope it's the best one yet, even if it is pretty low-key. I have a feeling next year might just top this one, though. ;) It's amazing how the selflessness of motherhood is already starting to settle in for you! Best. GIF. Ever. I used to say that all the time and had completely forgotten about it until just now. Hilarious.
