Today I am 27 years old.
I'm not really sure what I had hoped to accomplish by my 27th birthday.
But a husband, a house, two cars, and one baby later, I think I'm proud of this little life of mine.
I also have my bachelor's degree, a job that I enjoy (which has nothing to do with my degree.....), fun friends, and an amazing family.
I really couldn't ask for more, you know?!
Obviously, this little lady is my pride and joy........even if I had accomplished nothing else in the past 27 years, I would be content to just have her to raise.
Seriously, being a mom is the best thing. Ever.
This month is sort of bittersweet for me. If you know me, you know that I have wanted to be a speech-language pathologist for quite some time. Well, if my life had taken a slightly different path, I would be graduating this month with my Master's Degree.....and I would be an SLP.
I'm not really sure how I should feel about this pseudo-failure.
I mean, it's a failure in the sense that I never even tried. The second that I found out I was pregnant, I knew that my dreams for continuing my education would be moving to the back burner. Getting my husband through college, raising a baby, buying a house.....those things all took first priority.
So, it's not really a failure then, is it?
My hopes and dreams for my 27th year include:
My husband finishing college! Woohoo!~Potty-training a certain little someone~Spending lots of time crafting and hopefully selling those crafts~Enjoying each moment~Creating fun memories by continuing traditions with my family~Helping others by being a friend, giving when I can, and thinking less about myself and more of others~Expanding our family (at least get a start on it....).
While 27 is kind of a hard pill to swallow (I'm definitely not in my "early twenties" anymore.....sigh), it's pretty much the same as any other day.
You're only as old as you feel, right?!
Well, most days I still feel like I'm 18 so I guess I'm doin' all right ;)
