Well, it's official: I'm 28... and on the 28th, too! The past few months have been filled with a lot of change and I feel like I've done quite a bit of growing up (or catching up) in a short amount of time. I'm finally starting to feel like I'm supposed to feel at this age, though I realize that there are people who are younger than I am who have accomplished much more. But as I've gotten older, I've stopped trying to compare what other people are doing to the path I'm on. It's not that I don't care that other people are getting married, buying houses, and having babies. I do. It's just that I've come to realize that I'm happy taking things as they come – and I believe that it'll all work out in the end.
So, to sum up, I may not feel 28 (aka two years away from 30 ahhh!!?)... but I just feel content about where I am at this point in my life. I haven't felt that way in a long time. Of course, there are still a lot of things I want to work on – new skills, getting in better shape, working on a side hustle – but all in all, I think 28 is gonna be a good year. I can't wait to see how it pans out.
I wanted to talk about this dress from Hearts and Found for a second. How cute (and appropriate) is this balloon animal print? I really love all the customization options Marjorie offers, and I love the design of this dress. My only qualm is that the shoulder straps are slightly too short for me, but other than that, it's such an adorable piece. Absolutely perfect for a birthday!
