Last Post in my Twenties


I got a little braggy about still being in my 20's at the playground today. I was practically skipping around saying, "This is the last time you'll see me in my 20's. La Ti Da!" And here I am doing it again on my blog. And tonight I'll put it on facebook. And then twitter. I love saying I'm still in my 20's. It sounds so young!

Oh, my twenties. How could I describe this decade? I spent most of the past ten years setting up my life. I graduated from college, got married, had all my kids, and settled down in the best city in the world. I'm pretty close to exactly where I wanted to be at this age. And I'm not even a planner! I hate todo lists!

30 years old. What are some things I have to look forward to?

  2. Happy Birthday!! My 30s have been my best years so far. I spent most of my twenties searching for what I wanted, so I was a bit of a nomad, traveling and working places that fit my career goals. When I turned 30, I had a major milestone moment. I quit my job, went back to grad school for my MA, and had the best time of my life. It was the last hurrah of real young adulthood, enjoying the new city I was living in, going out every night, meeting the man of my dreams. When I entered my mid-thirties, I got married, had a baby, and lost someone near and dear to me. It seems that I've lived my life in my 30s and, for me, my 20s were all about setting up the foundation for what I'm living now. I LOVE my 30s. I still feel young, and fortunately, can still pass for being in 20s, so sometimes I feel like I have the wisdom of being older with the luck of looking younger. As I enter my late 30s, I don't even think about age anymore ,although I'll let you know how I feel when I turn 40!

  5. Happy birthday! I so adore your blog but I have to be a bit of a negative Nelly for a moment. There are always so many typos and as a past teacher, it drives me crazy! In this most recent post you happily announced that your graduated from "collage" in your twenties. Ah hem, it's collEge. Sorry to burst your bubble. I just had to make you aware of it. Now that I've gotten that off my chest, I can go back to adoring your blog! :)

  11. I hate to break it to you, but it's all downhill after you turn the big 30. The 20s are fun and exciting.

    Happy birthday!!!!!!!!!

  12. Thanks for this reminder of how much older I am than you. In terms of your body, I think it's pretty much downhill 30 onward, but not everything is downhill... I feel like as a mom your stage in life has more to do with the age of your children than your own age -- you are out of the sleepless nights/ changing diapers/ potty training/ diaper bags/ stroller phase, which I often look forward to.

  18. I just discovered your blog and I'm really enjoying it. This post caught my eye because I'm turning thirty in a few months! I feel like I'm supposed to have some kind of bucket list or transition or something but instead . . . I don't know, time just keeps going by faster and faster. I look forward to reading the rest of your posts!
