twenty-eight 

Well, I guess I am officially one year older by now! It perhaps is a little strange to think in just two short years I'll be thirty! Just the other day I was told I looked more like twenty. Ah, I suppose that sort of thing will never end. I guess that is better than someone saying you look 40 when you are actually 30? Anyway, maybe someday my baby face will "grow up" and I'll look more adult. ;)
  I didn't write much about my birthday and I'm not sure why! I guess I was busy all day on that special day and so I didn't have a lot of time to take pictures of my cake etc. Busy talking on the phone mostly! It was a really lovely birthday, however! It was also Jed's last day of classes at the university, so he was gone most of the day, but when he came back he took me to a really classy restaurant down the street. I think that was one of the best meals I've had in my life, come to think of it! Then we came home, ate the chocolate ice cream cake I made earlier that day and passed out on the couch while watching Gidget! I have a lot of fun memories from watching that cute little teen flick. My best friend for all of my growing-up years and her sister and I watched that movie on her 16th birthday in her basement. Their house was located just behind my house ("a field away" as we used to say) and the older of the two sisters' birthday was only six days apart from my birthday. It was fate that we were going to be best friends from the day my family and I moved into that little green farm house back in 1991.
  I've had some really great memories in my 28 years of life. I feel really blessed to be able to say that. I feel like I should have a list of goals to reach by the time I turn 30, but that might take some time to think through and write down. I am happy right now where I am and utterly blessed by Jed every day. Really, life is pretty grand! For now all I know is that I want to keep working harder every day to be a better person, a better partner to my husband and to never stop working as hard as I can for the things that matter most. I am excited to see what this year will bring! xoxo


P.S. Don't forget today is the last day for my birthday sale in the shop! :)

  2. sounds like a lovely, low-key birthday! you do look young, but it'll work in your favor in ten years.

    i'm trying to come up with a list of things i want to accomplish by 35. i think a 2 year plan is a reasonable time frame, especially for big projects.

  3. i'm turning 28 in three weeks and it's definitely a strange feeling! 30 is so close and it really does feel like a major milestone in fast approaching.

    i think you have a lot to be proud of in your 28 years! :)

  5. Happy Birthday! Or, Penblwydd Hapus as we say here in Wales. Sounds like a wonderful birthday! I'm 36, and I have to say that my thirties are my favourite years to date (although I apparently still look like I'm in my twenties).
