29: Time to live it up

So, Tuesday I had a birthday. And while the number is nothing special, the age actually is. It's a wrapping up, coming to the end, closing of a chapter kind of age.

29. Last year of my twenties.

It's funny how you begin your twenties in one state of mind - college, class, dorms, partying, shackin', traveling ...and finish your twenties in somewhat of a different state of mind - job, career, travel, weddings, husbands, houses.

Well, at least for me.

But what's even funnier is while I started and ended the decade in a different place, I'm still {for the most part} doing the same things at 29 I did at 21.

The twenties are accepting. If there are things you're still doing at 29 that you did at 21 but shouldn't be doing, you can get away with it. It's ok to figure yourself out, change jobs, drink too much, spend too much, date and break up and marry. It's also ok to find your dream job, grow your family, and actually stay in on a Friday night, if you want to.

That is what your twenties is for; to make decisions, to make mistakes, to go and do, see and be seen, grab life by the horns and run with it.

With all that said, I'm embracing this year. I'm going to keep doing what I've been doing for the past 9 years.

How is that for a preachin???

Here is my birthday week in celebration....

Happy Birthday to my sweet Lil Sis as well. She made her debut 23 years ago on my 6th birthday and while I may or may not have thought it at the time, it's still my best birthday present yet to this day. Love you Lina.
