So, yea… it’s another year older for me, the big 27. I always love to celebrate my birthday as well as others but, for some reason I honestly am not quite sure how I feel about this one. Other than the fact that it scares the heck out of me. Just thinking that in a couple of years I will be hitting 30, yikes! Others have told me that the thirties are so much beter than your twenties. God, I hope they are right.
When I look back I see that my twenties have been nothing but emotional and very unpredictable, filled with so many different life altering events. From bouncing in and out of different colleges and majors, I honestly did not know what exactly I wanted to do and go in my life. Having my son at a young age and pretty much raising him on my own. To making new friends and growing apart from old ones. Meeting and getting married to the man of my dreams, giving birth to my second child, my father being diagnosed with Diabetes. Being a stay-at- home mom, and trying to work a photography business along working a full-time job during the day. All these events put together have made me who I am today, and I like to think thats a good thing.
I may not have reached all of long term goals yet. Such as; purchasing a home or my photography business running with flying colors. But, with the love of my husband, beautiful kids and lots of hard work and dedication. I do have faith that it will fall into a happy place for me. Despite those issues I’m over the moon happy with my life. I’m married to my best friend, and I have 2 incredibly smart kids with another one running close behind. Without these 3 people who drive me off the wall at times, I wouldn’t be where I am . It’s funny the way that works
By the way I have to give credit to my 7 year old son Joey and my 3 year old daughter Luna for taking these wonderful pictures of me. Most done by Joey… pretty awesome right? I think I might have a future photographer in my hands
Here’s a toast to myself for an even better year than the last, and a lifetime of happiness.
