It’s My Birthday!

Good Day My Amazingly talented Fellow bloggers, my patiently kind readers, and my ever so shy Facebook followers:

If you had not caught on by the title, it’s my birthday today!  I’m officially 24 again!  And again, and again!  A girl can dream right??  No really, I ran into a young man in a cramped local hang out.  Amongst the loud band singing a surprisingly enjoyable folk rendition of Hey Ya, and my failing attempts of trying to make my way to the counter a very tall boy beside yelled out “it’s my birthday,” as he accidentally pummeled into me.  

Kindly I turned to him, “how old are you turning? ”

 “24!”  

“Wow what a fun age that was for me, good for you.”  For the slightest of moments I became nostalgic…that is until I became overwhelmed with exhaustion.  To think of going back when I have made it this far sucks the air right out of my chest.  My teenage years were so full of wonder, my twenties were a blast, but my thirties have been so incredibly kind to me.  I’m so happy to be here!  I have seen so much of the world, enjoyed my kids, and I’m finally able to sit still long enough to write an entire book! 

Let’s celebrate being where we are!  What is the best thing about life in the here and now for you?
