My friends, I am alive! I swear to it!
I’ve just been so incredibly busy in the last week, between travel for work, birthday celebrations, and my obsession with Downton Abbey (I’m almost fully caught up on the current season). I have hardly had two seconds to think about my little CupHalfFull.
Anyway, today is my birthday, and I don’t know what it is about birthdays, but I love them. Getting to indulge a little – treating myself to a donut and a full-fat latte (none of that “skinny vanilla latte” nonsense this morning) and wearing bright red lipstick to work. Just makes the day feel a little more special when you put a little effort into getting ready 🙂
I had a hard time turning 28 last year – don’t ask me why. Perhaps it was the idea of finally entering my “late twenties” but I was in a serious funk. This year, I am excited for 29. It is my last year as a twenty-something, and I feel really content at where I am in my life. I live in a beautiful city, with the love of my life. We have a fabulous apartment in the most gorgeous neighborhood I can imagine. I have a wonderful new job that fulfills me, dear friends who are always there, and the most loving, encouraging family a girl could ask for.
28 ended up being a good year, but 29 is going to be the best year yet – I can just feel it.
Here’s hoping I blow all my birthday candles out tonight!
I promise, I’ll be back in action very soon, and my little blog will not go neglected 🙂
