Did I mention that I turned 26 this month. I'm not gonna lie, I was pretty aprehensive about the whole thing. I generally don't enjoy birthdays much, as it is, but for some reason the idea of 26 seemed so daunting. I think mostly because 25 set a pretty high standard. At 25 I got married, we got an apartment, we got a dog, I got a job that I love, I started graduate school and I struggled/beat the crap out of some obstacles. God was really great at 25. So I was pretty content with sticking to 25 for the rest of my life.
In the last few weeks though, I've started to see myself and the world around me a bit differently. Sure, I'm not just suddenly so much wiser or more mature, but there's been a shift and I think I'm okay with 26. I might even be a little excited about it. God is still God, which means He's still great and He's still going to do some great things.
What was your favorite age??

  3. Gorgeous as always... I didn't start to feel comfortable with myself as a woman and as a person until I entered my thirties. I think I really blossomed at 32.
