The cliché ‘time flies’ is one I used to roll my eyes at. I remember when I was 19, I was so excited to finally be considered an adult. And now 12 years later, I still feel like I am 19 and there are definitely some things that I wish I could of told my younger self.
The first being that 30-something is not old, 30 is the new 20 after all. All joking aside, 'hindsight is wisdom'. I never actually seemed to understand this until I was older and I guess had more life experience. I think this especially came to light after I had my son. When I was younger, I seemed to care about things and people that truly are insignificant and not important in life. Its funny how as people it’s easy to get wrapped up in things that are trivial. Having my baby boy really put everything into perspective and made me realize who and what really matters.
Last year, I dreaded turning the big 3-0. Maybe it’s just the stigma that goes with no longer being a 20-something. Maybe its vanity. This year as I enter year 31, I couldn’t be more excited. As I look at my life, I am so blessed. I am blessed with a healthy, happy and beautiful little boy. I am so fortunate to be his momma; he is my greatest success. I am blessed with a kind, supportive and understanding husband. I am blessed with THE best and most selfless parents and kind and pure hearted brother a girl could ask for. I am blessed to have a job that I love to do and family & friends that are always so supportive and kind. I am blessed to have the confidence to make anything, cook anything, do anything, and be anything I want. Clearly, I am not lacking in the confidence department (thanks Mom & Dad). So, here’s to you 31, I know this year is going to be an amazing, exciting and special one for my family and me!
P.S.- How pretty is this dress?! I am so in love with the sleeves...and these shoes were my wedding shoes, my something blue!
