5-25-75


I turn 35 today. I don't feel 35.



Where did the last five years go?

A few weeks after my 29th birthday, I met the man who would become my husband. Two days before I turned 30, my husband proposed to me. On my 30th birthday, we were in Disneyland. A few months after my 31st birthday, I got married. Three months after my 32nd birthday, I got pregnant. One week before my 33rd birthday, I had my baby. One week before my 34th birthday, my baby turned one. And now he is two, I am 35 and I have had six wonderful years with my husband.


Whew.


If I am lucky, I am about halfway through my life right now. I hope I will have many more years to come because there is so much I still want to do and experience. Every day is a blessing.


This August, I will have been blogging for seven years. Thank you for letting me share my life and interests with all of you.

(This is a picture of me wearing a chicken hat at this year's Petaluma Butter and Egg Day Parade. It is a reminder to myself to always keep a sense of humor and whimsy and to always be able to laugh at myself)
