29 and feeling fine

Today I turn 29. Yes I am a proud Capricorn, I love starting off every new year a year older and wiser. It feels good it feels the same it feels special. This is the last year of my life I will ever again say I am twenty-something. I was and never have been a “birthday” girl. I never was the type to let the world know it’s “my day”. In fact, ever since I was younger, like elementary days I would play hooky and not go to school and as I got older I would call out of work. Every year. I never wanted to make it all about me me me. That isn’t my personality. I always want others to shine and I want to make them laugh and feel good. I never ever wanted the attention, that never felt right to me and still doesn’t. Hence the reason why I don’t plan to ever marry. One night of all eyes on you sounds like a nightmare to me. You’re probably thinking this is coming from the girl who posts an #ootd on Instagram everyday. Why yes, I do that to hopefully inspire others in my outfit choices. That is the one thing I am confident most in, my outfits, my expression to the world without saying a damn thing. Other than that I never ever wanted the attention. I use to wear a wedding ring in college so men wouldn’t hit on me. I worked at Express and Michael Kors in college and they made me a “greeter” and I would BEG to do go-backs in the fitting room just so I could be in my own little shell. But this is 29. This year is different. Maybe it’s because I’m hitting 30 next year and I feel like THAT means big business. As in, I’m really no longer a spring chicken anymore. Life flies by and it is quite scary. It’s petrifying. I can say my 20s were the BEST years of my life. I partied my ass off in college every single night in NYC, and I mean every single night. My mother had a 12 hour successful spinal fusion surgery, my father battled leukemia and fought that mother fucker (sorry not sorry for my French), my brother was in a motor cycle accident and is fine, my sister changed her career path and took a huge risk and is happier than ever, I moved out of my childhood home, my parents divorced and I was okay but now it really hits close to home for me and I’m working on it, my old boss at the law firm I worked at for 7 years who I was super close with passed, he was one of the best men I ever knew. Lots of my friends got married and had babies, I rekindled old friendships/relationships, I realize things now that I never realized in my teens. I get why they say youth is wasted on the young. I started my blog which I love doing and love curating new outfits all day everyday, that makes me happy, I have the bestest friend a girl can ever ask for, I don’t even consider her a friend, she is my soulmate/soul sister. And most importantly, and I mean most, i met the love of my life, the man who gives me any/and everything, who would drop the world for me. He is the nicest, sweetest man and from there we had the most gorgeous little boy. I am healthy, Andrew is healthy, Mason is healthy. That is all in my life that matters. I am really lucky and I think about how lucky I am everyday and every decision I have made that’s led me to where I am. Now we have opened our own business and its super successful and we are overwhelmed with positive feedback. I love my family, I love my life. 2017 is going to be one of the best years yet for me. I am so thankful for the years who have made me, me. Bring it on 29, I’m feeling it. (Sorry I wrote this extremely quick and did not proofread!)

I slept till 10:30 this morning and Mase slept till 12:30 so we were pretty tired today. Andrew went out and got me a coffee and even THAT couldn’t get me out of bed. That being said, I let my hair air dry, threw on whatever I saw first in my closet and I am calling it a day. Tuesday to be precise. I think that’s what day it is! When you don’t work, everyday is Friday. I am still so lethargic today and sore from yesterday’s workout and hesitant to hit the gym again today. But I will because I live on a lake during the summer and definitely don’t want to be covering up. Although I have my eye on some sweet coverups that I can’t wait to get my hands on and body in! That is if this weather ever makes a turn for the heat!! Okay, going off on tangents now. I hope your day is more energized than mine. It’s just one of those days.
Also, don’t forget to enter yesterday’s Giveaway that ends Friday!

The free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it – basically because you feel good, very good, when you are near or with them.
