Happy birthday to me! Today I'm 25 and I don't have a stigma about it. Jon keeps giving me a hard time telling me everything is downhill from here. I can't eat what I want anymore without gaining a pound, loosing weight is harder, the bills add up more, etc. All I can think is how happy I am with my life at 25. I have a wonderful husband who has enriched my life over the last 4 years together. I have a beautiful son who lights up my world with his happy little soul. And I have another healthy baby boy on the way! On top of that we own a business that pays the bills, have a beautiful home, I have a blog I love and friends and family who make me feel like a million bucks! I have absolutely no complaints in life - I'm so blessed!
I did reflect this week on what feels most different at this point in my life and that is the fact that I'm comfortable in my own skin. I'm happy with with woman I am and I'm okay with being me if that means I'm different from someone else. For a long time I struggled with that (especially in my younger years in school), but as I've aged and become a wife and mother, a more independent individual, I've realized I love who God made me to be and I want to seek 'her' more.
I bought this dress as a birthday present to myself and I can't even begin to explain my obsession with it! Okay... yes I can. The print is absolutely beautiful! The bold colors against the neutral white makes my heart skip a beat. The length is absolutely perfect for anyone who wants to show a little leg, which personally I am comfortable doing. And can we talk about the lace detail on the bell sleeves? Good heavens!
25 already feels freaking good! Now where's the desserts?
