I recently turned 28, which isn't old, but it certainly feels significant, at least in the sense that I am at a point to where I'm not exactly sure what the future means. I'm learning to make no accordance with these ideas of being a certain person by a certain age because honestly, it's not as momentous as I had thought it at one time. It's only with age that I'm making this defined... or undefined; but spending days and life (for the most part) exactly how I want and making it the best I can.
Birthdays have always been on a level of expectation that can't ever seem to be equalized. I told myself that it was more important to have a great day rather than making it a fuss; and it worked. It is thanks to my husband and some of my close friends that this came to fruition.
Canoeing on the Harpeth River in a rain storm with a disposable camera was the best idea ever. Thanks Carissa! ( we shared the duties of documentation with one another)
