Twenty Nine.

by katelin on April 25, 2013


Every year on my birthday I get “Seasons of Love” stuck in my head. Because really, 525, 600 minutes. A year. It’s all gone. So many moments and memories. And just, I’m a sap. And I love musicals. But that’s besides the point.

This past year I did things. I made changes. I cooked more. I did more scary shit (trapeze anyone? hiking things? cooking chicken?). I wore things I didn’t think I could wear (red lipstick, ridiculous tutus, four inch heels). I read more. I started journalling again. I was a tourist in my hometown. I had lots of girl time. I went to more funerals than weddings. I went to more baby showers than bridal showers. I cried when I got shitty news. But I smiled when I was reminded how lucky I truly am.

It’s weird to think I’m turning 29 today where part of me feels like I’m already 30. So many friends have hit 30 this year and sometimes I slip and say I’m 30 already, but really, just 29. One more year to be considered a twenty something. One more year for what? I don’t even know.

I do know that 29 is being kickstarted with champagne and a move to a bigger apartment, a new beginning, a new chapter, all of the above. I know that this year won’t be the easiest. But I do know I’ve got great friends and family to support me.


So let’s do this 29. I’m quite ready for whatever shenanigans you hold in store for me.



happy everything!
