28 and Counting

11 May

When I woke up this morning, I completely forgot that today is my birthday. Honestly.  I know people say that sometimes when they want to deny that they’re getting older, or just to keep people from feeling bad about forgetting.  But I honestly did not think about it. There have been so many other things going on lately, that it hasn’t been the countdown that it normally is.  And 28 just seems like such a random year.

I had trouble with 27.  It’s not really a landmark year or anything, but in my head it seemed like I was crossing from mid-twenties to late-twenties I guess, and that was hard.  But it has turned out to be a pretty good year overall.

28 seems to be a year of life change for me.  A baby in a few months, a husband starting law school, and who knows what else.  Maybe that is enough on its own.  Seems like it will be.

Since it’s my birthday, and I get to do what I like on my birthday, I thought I’d share with you just a few things I’m loving right now.

1. Toms Shoes – Seriously, these are some great shoes!  Comfortable, cute, and for every pair that is purchased, they give a pair to a kid in need in another country.  Also, that t-shirt totally describes me.  I don’t wear shoes if at all possible… ever!

2. Holly Aiken bags– Holly is a local artist here in Raleigh and has an adorable little shop which I love to look at as I walk or drive by, but have never actually been inside.  Sad, right?  Isn’t her stuff just the cutest?

3. Cameras – I know, big surprise, right?  I have lots of lenses on my want-it list (35mm L series Canon lens), but here are a few (less expensive) different things I’ve been eyeing:

4. Pandora Radio – How I stay sane at work.  My current favorite stations: Keane Radio and Needtobreathe Radio.

So, thanks to everyone who has wished me a happy birthday.  You’ve made my day!  And here’s to a great 28!

    I hope you’ve had a great day today! Yeah for birthdays!
    I’m looking for new shoes and I think I’ll get some Toms based on your recommendation!
    And I also want a 35mm lens (Nikon though) and the Instax (it looks fun)…
