Tricky questions. Do I feel old? Old enough to have been married for 7 years, blessed with three indescribably amazing girls, and seasoned a little bit in the ups and downs in life. So yeah, I feel like 27 fits well.
But old, old? Nope. One year closer to 30 is more exciting than anything else. Last night Nathan said, "I know it's the greatest thing in the world having the girls young, but can you imagine how exciting it will be to watch them become the people they are going to be?" I hadn't thought of that lately, but now that I do, I think the future is going to be every bit as exciting as the present. I guess the key is enjoying every year, right when your in it, and if I'm able to do that year after year, then the answer to the second questions is, yes, I might get to a point where I feel old, but no, I don't think it's going to bother me.
For now, I'm celebrating my official move into my late twenties, by spending the day going to Starbucks, returning items at the mall and Toys R Us, playing tennis with Nathan, and grilling out with the whole family tonight. I LOVE Saturday birthdays!!
And there is a possibility that I will share my birthday with my new niece Allie Grace! So here's to a day filled with fun and possibility!
