Today...

Ever since I can remember my mom was "29". At each birthday she would turn 29 (again). I have heard people repeatedly say "Oh, to be 29 again."  Card companies have created hundreds of thousands of  cheesy birthday cards for the whole "29 again" crowd.

All this to say, today I am officially 29. The real 29. And considering this will likely be the year I look back on and yearn for, it's gonna be a good one. No, make that a great one.

I am excited to see how it unfolds, and I am hoping that 29 really does last forever. Because, to state the obvious, next year I will be 30. And that scares the begeebees out of me.

P.S... Considering I have been so super good on my crazy diet, I'm gonna eat one of these:

Happy birthday to me.

Happy (belated) birthday!

Don't worry. Twenty-Ten & Twenty-Eleven aren't bad. I'll be leaving my "Twenty-Elevens very soon.. scary!"

Happy Birthday (I know I'm late) I couldn't wait to turn 30...now that I'm getting closer to 40 it's not so exciting. I still have 3 more years in the 30s though.

April- I am sure I already told you thank you, but thanks again :) You are the only comment that was left that was written before the blogger blackout on thursday/friday that did not get erased! I am not sure what the heck happened to all of them, but you must be special cause yours is still here :)

Julie and Jill- Thank you both :) I would like to think in many ways things are getting better with age (other than my memory :), so I know there is a lot to look forward to! When I think about the number it just gets scary. Graduating from college seems like yesterday, and it was over 7 years ago, so I feel like in just a matter of weeks and I'll be turning 50 or something :)
