happy birthday to me

today is my 31st bday. didn’t see that one coming.

i used to be in my 20s, you know.
now i’m not just 30. i’m in my 30s. scary.i’m not where i thought i’d be, but that’s ok.
because i am exactly where i’m supposed to be and i wouldn’t change a thing.
i have faith that everything will work out the way it should.

i have the best friends a girl could ask for.
my job(s) are crazy, but i love what i do.
my family drives me a little crazy, but i love them, too.
crossfit. the pup. chicago. my health. this blog.
even when everything feels impossible, i still feel so lucky.
so incredibly blessed.
i’m not big on celebrating birthdays because that’s never been my thing.
my friend lindsey made reservations for tonight.
not celebrating was apparently not an option. i love my girls.
might take part of the day off. we’ll see. lots of work to do.
so cheers to being in my 30s.
because they’re not as scary as i thought they’d be.
in fact–i think 31 might be kind of wonderful.
i’ll let you know how it goes.and also, i should probably get better about using eye cream.

    I loved this post πŸ™‚ It's the perfect combination of what women our age feel on each birthday – you've got a lot of great things to look at and realize how much you've accomplished, but there's still a feeling that each year flies by so quickly. Cheers to what I'm sure will be an awesome year for you! (and let me know if you find an eye cream you like)

  • Marisa
