Another year, just. like. that.
How does it go by so fast? I swear I was just ringing in my 32nd birthday in New York with my love. But the more I think about this year, the more I realize that it has been a wild ride – from amazing vacations, to fertility woes, losing a pet, designing homes, pushing my blog forward all the while raising the COOLEST 2 year old I’ve ever known. Whew!
Most of the time I don’t even pay attention to my age – it’s all about how I feel. Some days I’m utterly exhausted and others I’m just as silly as Hudson and will dance like a maniac in the living room.
If you would have asked me 5 years ago what my dream life would be – I would (without a doubt) describe my life right now. At thirty-three I truly couldn’t ask for more. Okay, maybe for my sister to move home, but other than that I truly need to pinch myself every morning.
Even though this past year wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies (it’s called LIFE and I’m not naive to think that less than stellar things can’t happen to us) I am excited and eager to start another year with new goals, motivations and openness.
And these guys have planned a whole birthday surprise – how lucky am I? Excuse me, I’m off to celebrate.
