I'm Feeling 22 (Except I'm 25)

4.22.2016

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?

  1. Happy birthday to you!! Life is amazing and I'm glad you're enjoying it! I'm turning 25 in a couple months and it does have the feeling of a pretty serious milestone, but I'm still sure the best is yet to come. :)

  6. Happy happy birthday! I cannot believe you're only 25! Trust me when I say it has only gotten better - I'll be 27 in a few weeks and each year has only been more fun than the last :) You look gorgeous!!

  7. Happy birthday beautiful! Jon is wrong ;) I'll be 30 next month and I seem to only be happier with each passing year! I love what you said about being more comfortable with YOU, that is one thing I'm focusing a lot more on these days. Life is way too short to focus on things that simply do not matter. Hope you have a fabulous birthday and get some yummy cake.

  8. Oh man, don't let him scare you! You're in a different place than I was at 25 -- I'm 28 and expecting my first baby just now -- but the stuff like not being able to eat without gaining weight, etc -- that's ALL false. 25 is easy, and so is 26, and 27, and 28. Honestly, I think it just gets easier as you get older. You learn more and know what you're doing, people continue to take you more seriously, if you're in a career-- you will earn more money to accompany those growing bills. Just remember, getting older is a gift :).
