I can’t believe another year has come and gone! As my cousin would say, “I made it around the sun one more time.”
I couldn’t help but reminisce about the highlight reel of some of my previous birthdays – my 18th birthday with the cotillion and big ballroom, my birthday at Skateland where I had to wear this figure skating looking outfit (I think that was my 8th birthday), my first “boy/girl” swim party at my aunt’s house…the list goes on and on. This year, though, was definitely one for the books.
It’s not like I did anything really special this year. I just invited my friends to the beach to hang out and to have a few drinks afterward.
Whoever could make it – great. Whoever couldn’t – I totally understand. But I just had so much fun this year! I think that for me, being 28 is finally just accepting me for who I am. Truly accepting me and who I am right this very second. No longer wishing I was someone else, no more look at others lives on social media and blogs and wishing that I had their job/life/success. With a lot of prayer and self-reflection I’m finally in a place of peace – and it feels damn good! 🙂
Here’s a picture of some of us from the beach (wish I got to take a picture with everyone!).
Cheers to everyone that has made it around the sun one more time. It’s a blessing to be alive!
