My Birthday Happened

I feel like I have entered my next quarter of a century with a case of the needs.

I need several things. Or maybe I want several things? I feel like they are needs more than once, but who knows. I find myself needing or rather wanting new things when I've become tired or bored or whatever with the things I do have.

I always seem to need/want more. They aren't major needs. In fact they seem silly as I think of them writing this post here. I feel I need to pause and take a step back to examine what I truly need.

There are more than material needs. I need to remember that. I need to remember my material needs are temporary. I realized especially this last weekend when I cleaned out/organized some of my closets. I right now need a new handbag, but one day that handbag will be behind other handbags collecting dust due to different material needs. And I'll be cleaning like I am now and take that one out of the mix a couple years later.

Quite honestly I am proud of the person I am becoming but I've still got a bit of work to do. I want to strive everyday to become a better version of myself everyday. No one has their life totally figured out at 25 and actually never have the whole thing completely figured out. 

Enough of the serious. 
I ended up working an odd early morning shift on Friday, leaving the hours people are normally up on Friday, free. Kevin had that Friday off too, so we made a spontaneous trip back to our hometown and hung out with my family and a couple of friends. 

Hanging out with my family was nice. My dad fed me like a queen and took me out for a morning of shooting!

Wasn't ready with my outfit for shooting so I had to tuck in my shirt and cardigan. Gotta rock that hat for sun protection. #wrinklefreeisthewaytobe

I was also spoiled rotten by my amazing husband with a pair of diamond earrings and an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner.

I do love him!
Yay for another year of me! :-)


  1. Oooh, diamond earrings! Sounds like a great birthday--and hurrah for sun protection! I stay pale, but hey, no wrinkles!

  2. Happy Birthday! Totally agree on the hat and wrinkle free business. :)

  3. Happy belated Birthday!! 25 was all about reflection for me too. I'm glad you were able to spend time with friends and family!


Comments make my day!
Thanks for the love <3
