. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Twenty Eight

November 4, 2012

Twenty Eight


jeans: kohls   boots: dsw (similar)  cardigan: ?   scarf: OmMadeWithLove

Year 28.
Another year older. 

This is where all of you who are over 30 think about how young I really am. 
and all of you who are under 25 think of how old I must be.
And this is where the phrase that I really dislike fits perfectly, "It's all relative."

Too be honest I am pretty much stuck at the age of 24.  
Mostly because I honestly answered that as my age for the three years after I turned 24, on accident.
That and I know I could pass for 19. 
I even got carded for buying Nyquill the other day.
Which makes me feel better after failing to hear one of the higher pitch sounds that "younger people" can hear, on that high frequency sound app after my birthday dinner with my family.  


On a more serious note I have high hopes for the year twenty eight. 

I have hopes for God to continue to work in mine and Chris' marriage. 

Hopes to have a baby sometime this next year. 

and if I don't get pregnant, hope that God continues to poor out his love and wisdom as I go through this journey. 

I have plans to keep learning how to be a better friend. 

and to do a better job at living in the moment and not always wishing for the next thing to happen.  

and plans to remind myself regularly of all the blessings that God has given me.  

So cheers to another year!




p.s. Thanks for making me feel loved with all the birthday wishes on Friday!

28 is a great year! Now, looking back, from the old age of 31 I can say that my twenties were good, but boy was it nice to get into the 30's. There's nothing to fear with getting older because you get wiser as well. Sending baby wishes your way!

Alana Christine said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Yay for another year! I have a feeling it'll be a great year for you! BTW, that shirt is very flattering on you!

Mariel Collins said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Teresa said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Happy Birthday! I have been in my twenties, I can say the thirties are better, unitl I did my thirties and I now can say that, so far, the forties are even better than that. Life is like wine, it gets better with the years. Have a blessed one!!!

Love this post! Cute outfit, as usual. The "high pitch' comment made me laugh! I will be 26 in January and still always want to say 24 too, for some reason. I guess that's the age I decided I wanted to be stuck at lol. Hope you had a great weekend! : )

Denise said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Happy Birthday. So glad you are in the world. Love and blessings to you.

Elsha Bodily said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Happy late birthday girl! And you really could pass for 19...I was confused when you said 28. Young at heart is all that matters :) Love your outfit, especially the boots!

Erika said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Happy Birthday! I didn't want to get any older than 24... but 28 was the year I got pregnant and had my little guy, so it turned out pretty great! Hope you enjoy your day:)

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love the way you belted it :)
I, too, feel like I'm about 23-24. When will that go away? Hopefully not anytime soon!

Kirsten Wiemer said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Jessica said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Happy birthday! Praying that this is a special year for you!! My birthday is just a few days after yours, and I will be 28 as well. It is a weird age, because I feel young and old at the same time, based on who you compare my age to.
Hope your day was wonderful!

Jennifer said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Happy Birthday! I've hated every one of mine after turning 25. In just a couple of months is my 35th :(

Jessica @ Lovely Little Things said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You definitely look younger than you are..which I love because I'll be 23 in January and I look 15...not kidding ;) Everyone always tell me I'll appreciate it later in life...still waiting for that lol

Love the way you knotted that belt, girl!

Well said ma'am :) you look great in your picture. Its always a good reminder to live in the moment and be happy with life as it is... not always having to look forward to the next "thing". Great reminder :) God has big things in store for you, I'm sure.

Happy Birthday! =D
Yes, age is really relative. But, the best thing is you get another year to celebrate. As we get older, hopefully we get wiser and we don't sweat the small stuff.

Here's to hoping the 28th year of life is one of your best years that you can look back on after many, many years! =)
