{today, my birthday}

Today is my 31st birthday.  
I'm pretty sure I've accidentally been telling people that I'm thirty-one for the past six this is not that traumatic for me.

Some notable things from the past 365 days...

1. Had a baby.  Kind of a big deal.
2. Lost 38 pounds.  Okay, so most of it was baby-related...but still.
3. Travelled to Europe for the second time.  Hopefully not the last!
4. Stopped tanning.  Not gonna lie, kind of envious of some of the tans I saw at the pool yesterday...but having three pre-cancerous moles removed was enough to inspire me to stop fake-baking cold turkey.
5. Started using anti-aging cream.  Yep.

Aging is a funny thing.  Sometimes I feel old and a bit ornery.  Other times I feel young and vibrant.  Sometimes I am overwhelmed by how full and beautiful my life is.  Other times I get irritated at myself for not being able to laugh off the things that go wrong and just focus on the good.  Sometimes I feel like I could run a marathon.  Other times I feel creaky and exhausted.

And so it goes.  Another year of life is on the heart is full of anticipation for what it might bring!
