..from 12 to 26 in 10 seconds flat..

I can remember riding in the truck with my dad when I was about 12. And he said to me, "You're going to blink your eyes, and you'll be driving. Then you'll blink again and you'll be graduating high school. A couple more blinks, then comes college and marriage."

At 12 years old, that conversation didn't mean a lot to me. But now, I understand just how much truth there was in his words. It seriously feels like 6 months ago I was still in college, but it's been 4 years. Last month I celebrated my 26th birthday. I know it may not seem like a big deal, but suddenly, I'm in a new bracket. You know when you fill out a questionnaire, and they have those age brackets? I'm no longer in the 18-25 one. I just blew through that!! Life is just funny because you can make plans, and have expectations, and usually everything turns out totally different. I'm not where I thought I would be at 26, but I am very happy where I am. And even though it's been a month, I finally scrapped my pictures of me on my birthday. I may be in a whole new bracket, but I'm excited to see what happens :)


  1. We do grow up fast don't we. I love you LO. :)

  2. I totally know what you mean. I just realize the other day I have been out of HS for 15 years. That is longer than I spent in school, that drug on and on, these 15 flew by! I turned 26 the same month I got married, so insurance rates were cut in half! lol Financially, a good age bracket!

  3. great layout and how true! I wish I was 26 again or 36 or okay enough enough! LOL love the blog!

  4. I think that life has gone very quickly for me too, but the most important thing is never to lose the child inside all us.

    Your blog is great, I will visit it some times.

    I send you regards from México!

  5. Happy Birthday! I totally understand. I just hit 27 in March. It's flying by.
