Well, hello there!
I turned 29 yesterday and had the best birthday ever! Not only was I blessed with the best birthday wishes from many, many people. I also got some very great presents. The best of all? A painting from a 4 year-old and a photobook made by the Mr.
I know I am not the average 29-year old. But then again: What does the average 29er look and act like? But I have been told a lot I am more like a mid-twenty lady then.
turning 29 means this is my last year as a twenty-someting. Next year I will be 30. The big 3-0! Last time I celebrated anything-0 I turned 20 and had the best time. I was going out a lot, meeting with friends and having fun. Sometimes I had too much fun but I guess that’s some lesson one has to learn on the way.
Now I find myself in a serious relationship for over 8 years. I find myself working a fulltime job. I talk about buying stuff for the house. Buying a new car. I also find myself thinking about marriage and kids. Weekends are filled with talks and meeting friends to chat or go out for dinner, not so much with parties and having drinks.
Do I miss the „old days“? Not at all. I think the best times are still ahead. I am going to get married one day. I am ging to have a family, to give birth to children. I am sure going to own a dog one day. Work less, live more. I am going to doubt my life from time to time and then looking back at the „good old days“ thinking I did nothing wrong.
Seriously, the best days are still ahead and I am very curious what this new year in the life of me will feel like. I spent most of this day curled up on the couch, reading (and sleeping, haha) – it is my first day off and I’ll go back to work on March 13th. So today was not wasted at all, it was a perfect recharging-day.
So… do you ever imagine your future or think about the past? Let us be part of your thoughts!
