Another Milestone: Where does the time go?

Good Morning!

Yes, today is my birthday.  I’m 35.  I haven’t decided how I feel about 35 yet.  I mean, I’m not concerned with “aging”, per se.  I don’t feel old, nor do I look particularly old.  But I am acutely aware of time passing, and of how insanely fast the last 3 or 4 years in particular have slipped by.  However, dwelling on it won’t change it so I’m going to focus on some highlights from my last year.

Year 34 was a relatively uneventful year, no overseas trips, no big life events. However it started with a bang with a masquerade themed co-birthday party with my friend Tory which was very fun.

I went to Vegas for the first time which was a very, very fun, albeit overwhelming experience. What I wouldn’t give for some of that sunshine right now. (see posts here and here)

2. Summer vacation.  My niece Katrina came to visit me in Toronto for the first time with my mom which was great.  And then I headed back with them to spend some quality time at my cottage in NB.

In the fall, I went to Blogpodium, which was awesome.  I got to see so many of my favourite people and learned a a lot.

And that is a re-cap of year 34 according to my blog.  It was a good one, but I think 35 is going to be even better.

Have a great day!

Hello everyone!

Today is my birthday!

It has been roughly 33 years since I looked like this…..

Ya, I know, I was cute. (There is a very good chance I had just pooed in that tub of water and that is why I’m smiling but the details are not important…..).

To celebrate, I’m having dinner followed by drinks with a group of my closest friends….I’m hoping there will be some of this….

This….

and if things get a little crazy, maybe even a little of this…

And if I had all the money in the world I would wear this Haltson dress….

with these Louboutins….

The fact is, I have always loved birthdays….I mean, one day dedicated just to you, how amazeballs is that? That being said, I am whole-heartedly aware that I’m not getting any younger and I definitely thought I would be in a completely different place in my life at this age than I find myself to be. And in a lot ways that is a great thing, but in other biological-clock a tickin’ away kind of ways it sucks. BUT since it is the one me day of the year, I’m not going to spend it being negative because I have a million things to be thankful for.

Even if this year my hair looks a little more like this (under my colour job)….

And my boobs look a little more like this (the curse of having bigger than C-cup)…

(OMG, who is this woman???)

I’m still young at

and that is all that matters!
