Thoughts on turning 27...

I turned 27 this past July 16. A milestone in a way because I'm now in my late 20's instead of my mid 20's (as my husband, Jason, so kindly pointed out!!). I'm truly flabbergasted (great word) about this strange occurence lol. The age old question, "Doesn't it seem like just yesterday when?..." seems cliche, but it is soo true! Time really does fly. I honestly feel as if it WAS just yesterday that I was still so carefree and living the good life during college. I don't know where the time went! I do feel older, but not quite so old as my husband probably feels (he is 31 hehe!). Sorry, I like to tease him! At first, I was depressed about turning ripe old 27, but the more I think about it, I'm ok with it. God gives us a certain amount of time on this Earth and the only reason we should feel bad about getting older is if we aren't doing anything good or worthwhile with the time He has given to us. I read a book recently and the author talked about the feelings which come with getting older. She talked about how you aren't just the age you turn on your next birthday...you are also every age that you have already been! I love this way of looking at it. I'm not just 27, but I'm also 2, 10, 18, and 25! All of those ages belong to me and are still a part of me...we are only as old as we choose to feel. Another cliche for ya...you can always remain young at heart. There is nothing stopping you from this...embrace the age that you are and remember where you've been because it will always be a part of you :).

In addition to your thoughts, just remember our lives just keep getting better as we age.
Like I've mentioned before-I can't wait till Scott & I retire!

Just remind Jay that he's closer to 40 than 20 next time he brings up your age. :)
