Today is my last day as a 27 year old (earlier this week, Ella saw the number 37 on something and said, “Hey, that’s how old you are!” I was quick to correct her).
It’s been a great year for me, and I anticipate another good year ahead. I feel really lucky that I’m blessed with a generally happy disposition – life almost always just seems good to me, with many things to look forward to. I can’t wait to see what this next 12 months holds.
Also, I’ve already bought myself a little birthday present (I pretty much consider the entire month of September fair game for buying myself “birthday” gifts). I was at Kohl’s last Saturday buying a bedskirt (guest room now has a bed! Come visit) and I saw a chambray shirt on my way out. On sale. Plus I had a coupon.
I’d already purchased two different chambray shirts in the last four months and returned them both (this one from Old Navy and one from Ross). I put this one on over my t-shirt in the aisle, deemed it good, and brought it home.
And this one I’m not returning. It’d be rude, anyway, to return a birthday gift. I think I’d be very offended if I found out.
P.S. My blog has been an incredible source of happiness to me this year, which is thanks to you lovely readers. If you’re so inclined, I’d love it if you told me a bit about yourself or linked to your blog so I can come check it out. I so appreciate you reading, commenting, and being all-around wonderful. I hope you know how grateful I am.
