29

great adventure art print $18 by leah flores
I turn 29 today. In many ways I feel old and sometimes very tired and in other ways, I feel young and inexperienced and as soon as I think I've grasped some great truth I realize that I, in fact, know very little. I've lost much of the arrogance of my early 20s but have gained some perspective and confidence over the past year. 28 was certainly an adventure, and not always a good one, but an adventure nonetheless. Since my last birthday, we relocated to another state and both started new jobs, we've battled with infertility and continue fighting that tiresome fight, and we had a scary house fire and lost some things, but nothing that can't be replaced. I had good days and a few very bad days and everything in between. If life itself isn't an adventure, I don't know what is!\

Thanks for dropping by, your support and readership have always meant the world to me. I'll be taking a little break from blogging this week but I'll be back next week with fresh posts. Cheers!

Happy belated birthday Christina! 29 is a cool number (and 30 is even cooler, I promise!). Hope you had a great birthday. Happy blog break!

Happy Belated Birthday! Hope it was great. Just wait, you'll be amazed at the transformation you'll go through over the next couple years. Turning 30 was so transformational for me....not in a scary way either! Look forward to it, because it's fantastic!

Wishing you the best in the next year, friend!

Happy Birthday! I am honored that my art made it on your birthday post! 29 is my favorite number (I was born on leap year day) - so I would like to think that means it will be a lucky year :)

A happy (though very belated) birthday to you Christina! Perhaps year 28 was a test of your inner strength, and hopefully 29 will be a year of good changes, new adventures, and a new addition to your family. I will turn 39 in a couple of weeks, and although it doesn't really weigh on me, no doubt I will be making a list of goals for the next year before the major milestone birthday. Wishing you all of the best, girlie!
