Thirty Four

July 29, 2013

I turned 34 on Friday.  Thirty four!  I have a hard time wrapping my brain around that number for some reason. Lol!
I don't particularly feel 34.  Some days I feel like I am still in my twenties.  And other days when things are hectic ... especially during the school year with homework and projects... after a long day at work during a busy season... and feeling DEAD tired with 50 things to do before bed, I remember that I am not a spring chicken anymore and am smacked back into reality.
I remember turning 25 and making a big deal about it, thinking for some reason I was pretty much a senior citizen. Lol!  I can't believe that was 9 years ago.  These years are flying by and it is pretty scary. I wonder what the next 9 years will be like.. and then I stop myself.  I need to live in the moment more.  That is always a goal of mine.  Being present and enjoying life.
I have to say though, the thing that trips me out with getting older is watching my children get older, mature and GROW.  I look up at my 13 year old some days and can't believe that I gave birth to him.  Seeing my daughter slowly become a young lady is pretty fascinating too.  Some days I want to just go back to when they were babies and give them 400 kisses.
In my older age, I am content with my style, which feels amazing.  There is no better freedom than walking with confidence because you are ok with the way that you look.  My style is simple and without fuss these days and I think that has a lot to do with it. I don't feel like I need to try hard with trends or constantly buy new things.  My stance on style lately: "It's not that serious." :)
Overall, I am immensely happy with where I am in this life of mine. With my husband, I have created a life that I am proud of. We are beyond blessed.
I wore this simple outfit on Friday night to celebrate. I am pretty obsessed with this feather collar necklace that I picked up while on vacation. Isn't it fab? hehe! 33 was a great year...I can't wait to see what 34 will bring. :)
