one year older

....and wiser too....
It has happened I had another birthday. I'm officially 28 as of the 16th and how much I have changed, don't you think?

Birthdays are highly anticipated as a child, we count down days and we invite friends to our parties and tell everyone about it. At what point do we loose the excitement? I know I'm still a youngin but excitement was out the window for sure this year. 28 really? I'm in my late twenties, what just happened here? I know that the older we get the more experiences we have and more opportunities come up in our lives (i.e. going to Europe). I love telling people that I've been married for almost 6 years but in order to say that and do these things I have to age too. So I guess having a birthday isn't the worst? Good things come with each year, right? So I proudly wear my birthday button to let everyone know its my birfday!!!

well... it was my birfday

HAPPY BIRFDAy! I wish we could have had a double birthday party and invited all of our friends.. and we could even invite some super cute boys and have a pinata and go swimming and i would buy a brand new swimming suit just for the occasion and i would totally get you a friendship necklace in the shape of a heart and you would get half and i would get the other. and we would blow the candles out in unison and we would be the center of attention. i am rambling. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are the cutest little munchkin I've ever seen - love the missing teeth stage in life and your cute white dress with the red bows. Picture days were the best :)

Classic pic!! I hope you had a wonderful day! I tried calling, but I don't think we ever connected and now I cannot remember if I actually wished you a very happy 28. I'm a bad friend. But, Welcome to the club!! Love you!
