I’m turning 29 this weekend, and I feel like I need to come to terms with that. This is seriously the LAST year of my 20s?! Where has the time gone? And before we go any further, every time you read or say 29 from now on, please say it like Schmidt does in the video below, from one of my FAVORITE shows: New Girl.
You can rest assure I’ll be saying 29 like that all year, just because I’m goofy, and I think it’s kind of awesome.
My 20s were the most defining time of my life thus far, so much has happened in the past decade. Pretty much every major milestone you can experience happened to me in my 20s. I graduated from college (I miss those days), I lost my grandparents (really the first time I’ve lost people so close to me), I decided at some point I was too old for the club scene (that was a hard one), I married my soul mate (coming up on 6 years in October), I moved three times (and probably will move many more), I gave birth to my son (after a complicated and scary pregnancy, which I’ll talk about someday in another post), and I realized my dream of writing for a living, just to name a few.
I’m pretty excited to see what this last year has in store for me, and I’m going to enjoy every single minute of it. Every age, every year, brings moments that we will never forget. Embrace your age, make it count, and even though my mom makes fun of me every year (you still go out and celebrate your birthday?!), I can’t wait until Saturday when I can go out with my family and friends, act a little silly, and live (at least for this last year of my 20s) young, and wild, and free.
And thank you to my girl, Stephanie, for these amazing and delicious cupcakes! You are never too old for sprinkles!
What was the year or decade you remember most? Or do you think THE year or time of your life has yet to come?
