Twenty-Nine

September 24, 2013  •  4 Comments

I've arrived. I'm in my last year of my twenties. A few weeks ago, I discovered my first grey hair (or rather, my fiance did); I stayed up until 2 AM two weeks ago, and felt like death the next morning; I would rather stay in most Friday nights than go out, and I would rather have friends over to have a beer around a fire, than go to a bar to have a beer (where, consequently the music is too loud); I wear glasses now when I drive at night; I still get jittery when I drink coffee; I like country music instead of metal and slipknot (though I still like listening to it on occasion just to keep up with my youth!); I get up for work at 5:30 AM so I can miss rush hour traffic; I have learned that I don't need another person to make me whole, but have learned what a great joy it is to have someone who honors and respects me and helps me be the best person I can be without trying to changing who I am or my beliefs; I would still rather spend my money on a trip overseas than a piece of furniture for our house; I have stopped the weekly phone calls with my girlfriends, but we still communicate through email and text and have a stronger bond than ever; I am still best friends with my BFF from 4th grade; I can say with great belief that my 965 girls and I will never miss going to a John Mayer concert together if we can help it; I am getting a mortgage for my birthday this year (seriously. How much more grown up can I be?); I am learning to go after my own dreams and get so excited after every shoot I do because I can see myself growing and being able to bring joy to people through photography is such a great pleasure;  I am remembering even more how I was in high school - where I honestly didn't care what others thought of me and marched to the beat of my own drum. I am trying to bring that side of me out even more and embrace who I am, because being just like everyone else and doing exactly what everyone else is doing - would make for a boring journey;  I look at the sky and enjoy sunsets, sunrises and stars more than I ever have; I read a devotional every night; I am watching friends get married, have babies and go after what they want and it warms my heart to see so much love around me...

                                                           

I am chasing my dreams and envisioning a future so bright I need sunglasses. This is my 29....and it's absolute  perfection. I have never felt more at peace with where I am at in my life and if this is what 29 years of life brings, I can't wait to see what's next to come!  -Abs

How comforting it is as a parent to know that you are happy and content with your life and looking forward to your future! What more could we ask for?! You are a blessing to us and to our family. Keep shining bright, my 29 year old!
