One I've been dreading... when I was young thirty seemed so old to me. Now I'm inching towards my 40s. And fast! EEK!
But it was a wonderful day from start to finish. We had exceptional sunny weather in the high 60s (possibly the warmest birthday on record). And I even got my favorite angel food cake with white fluffy icing.
Then it suddenly dawned on me- I still have 12 months to live up my 30s. All this time I've been obsessing about the upcoming four-zero number...
But "if you're always rushing to the next moment, what happens to the one you're in?" (Thanks pinterest for the gentle reminder.)
So, my five foot frame may not be as young as it once was, but my cracking joints, fine lines and sun spots only further prove that it's lived.
I am a healthy, newbie southern belle who has a whole lotta life ahead. And turns out thirty-nine isn't so bad after all.
It's just a number.
