twenty five

June 8, 2012

Today is my birthday and I can say with pride that I'm 25. It's been a bit to grapple with this week, realizing that I'm turning a quarter century old. I've been more reflective than normal, thinking about and (over)analyzing the tiniest things. Yet, at the end of the day, and at the start of a new year, I'm so proud of where I am right now. I feel lucky, but more importantly, really happy. I have so many wonderful and supportive people in my life, including a husband who I'm still in love with and a puppy baby who, yes, is sometimes considered a human. I just hope that in this year, and in this next quarter century, I always stay true to who I am, do things I love and am passionate about, travel around the world, take as many photos as I can, smile from within and love truly and deeply. I'm so excited for this big year ahead!

  38. When I turned 25 I had the same feelings. Which surprised me because I wasn't expecting those type of emotions to pop until the big"30".

    I am 28 now and I can tell you it gets easier however reflections of the self will not go away. Which is not bad!

    Happy Birthday.
