28.

Today I turn 28. Yep. Twenty. Eight. Wow. I feel so old, in the blogging world, and in the real world. When I was younger and thought of where I would be at 28, it is not where I am today. But, I'm ok with that.

Sure, sometimes I feel like I'm "behind" as I watch babies, weddings, and engagements flood my Facebook news feed. Sure, I let then "when are you getting married??" remarks get to me sometimes. But when I am really honest with myself, I like where I am in life. I wouldn't change a thing. So back off society. I'll do what I want when I want to. ;]

Don't I look happy in my lop-sided over-sized turquoise bow?)

  1. Happy Birthday Julie! I sometimes feel old in the blogging world too. So many people out there have babies when they're in their early 20s.....it freaks me out =). I hope you have an amazing day and year. xoxo

  4. hahah YOU ARE FINE lady. I don't know why you feel old at all... (I know I'm younger than you) but not everyone in the blog world has babies at 20. :)
    I mean I am married... which makes me feel like a total weirdo in Seattle.

    but anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

  12. Happy Birthday! I just turned 30 and I'm certain it's gonna be my best year yet. I don't understand the comment, "I feel old in the blogging world." ??? I blog, and I feel young, spry, and like I have a lot to offer the blogerverse. I'm thankful that there are blogs out there written by women of every age. You've got experience to share! Hope you have a great day. ^^

  13. Happy birthday!! This post made me happy. Especially the second paragraph. I've been getting quite a bit of the "are you engaged yet?" stuff lately... and seeing a lot of people around me getting married. I go back and forth some days, but most of the time I'm so happy I'm not married/having kids yet. Loving life as it is. =)

  16. This is late, but Happy Birthday! I am in the same state (though a few years older) where sometimes it bothers me that I seem to be lagging behind other. Enjoy your life the way you want to enjoy it. Hope you had a wonderful birthday! :)

  17. Happy late birthday!! hope it was amazing!

    I kinda had a freak out with my birthday last month and I'm only 24. I think it's really freeing to realize that you don't have to keep a timeline. Suck it, society.
