Oh my word. I’m 35.
Seriously, I’m not sure what is happening to me. I know 35 is young. I know it. I know 30’s are the new 20’s. Yes, I have enjoyed my 30’s FAR more than the previous decade. Yes, I’m looking forward to this year and have a feeling it will bring great things (please, please, PUH-LEASE!!!).
But I remember when my mom was 35. She’s frozen in my head at 35. This whole time thing has really hit me.
(edited to add: I wrote this post last night, but today received a birthday card from my mom and she wrote in it, “wasn’t I just 35 a few years ago?”. The envelope was cute, because she always addresses it to “Naturtle” and I was thinking I was going to enlarge it and frame it because I just love her handwriting, but then I realized she got my address wrong so I probably won’t do that. Thanks, goofball.)
But it’s a good day and a happy day!
My wonderful husband packed the kids’ lunches last night so I wouldn’t have to this morning. I already got a gorgeous new laptop bag and I can’t wait to fill in all the little pockets. The family took me out to dinner last night since Wednesdays are our crazy day! And the best of all?? My husband told me he’s coming home early so he can run our daughter to dance and piano while I get to stay home alone for 2 hours!! And he’s bringing Chinese take-out home with him! And then I get more gifts!
Love my life and my family!
