Happy Birthday To Me

Yay! I am a birthday girl today! I really wanted to send out my post earlier today but between an important appointment in the morning, mama life, and a wretched cold that just won't go away when I tell it to-I am sending it now. Instead of sharing all the vintage and nerdy things I would love to have-I realized that I already have everything I love in my grasp. These past two weeks have been a slew of mini revelations and whispers to my heart and a-ha moments. I love when those things happen but I have had two weeks of them! I am blessed.

Perhaps it is because I am entering a new stage in my life or simply because I am ready to just "get it" but I do. I can say proudly and happily that I am exactly where I am supposed to be in my life, with the people I am supposed to be with, living the life I always dreamed. Of course sometimes you want some extra sleep (or some sleep) and you really want your baby to be able to change themselves but alas it is what it is. I don't think I have felt more at peace, more in the moment, more in love with my life as it is than I am now-imperfections included.

Today, I turn 38 years old. I have lived through some some incredible decades. I loved being a little girl, I love being a teenager, I love being a young woman, but I couldn't be happier about being 38. I am on the brink of going into my 40s and I am excited about it and feel ready for a whole new decade.

I want to say thank you to all my dedicated readers, fans, and friends who have supported me throughout my vintage journey and who still do. Without you to share this with, it just wouldn't be as much fun. So, thank you!! Stayed tuned this weekend my birthday outfit, birthday gifts, and oodles more.
