Sleeper Set, Zara Heels (similar)
Today is my 28th birthday… HOW?! I think I’ve been in denial these last few weeks about turning 28 not because of the number but just how quickly time flies. It feels like yesterday I was graduating college, moving to New York, starting my job and now those five years have suddenly disappeared in the blink of an eye.
To be honest, this has been one of my more stressful years. Balancing a full time job, the blog, a social life, fitness routine and sleep has been a huge struggle for me this past year and trying to do it all has been draining. It’s also hard not to compare myself to others at this age. For so many years, we all are constantly doing the same thing and then after college, it’s suddenly up to us to figure out our path. It took me a while to realize that that’s ok we’re not all doing everything together anymore. It’s always more fun to celebrate everyone’s milestones when they happen for them and when we’re all on our own timelines, there’s more moments to celebrate!
One thing I do know more than ever heading into 28, is that I’m so damn lucky. I’ve had a lot of moments this past year that I’ve pinched myself over. No, it’s not the big work events or the incredible trips (which of course I still can’t believe I get to do!), but it’s the people I get to do life with that make me stop and smile. From dancing with my best friends at their weddings to late nights at our favorite bar in the city to cozy holidays at home, it’s the people in my life who are my greatest gift. I’m also more grateful than ever to have this platform to capture and share moments with and have a new group of people I get to have in my circle. I cannot thank you enough for continuing to support this little part of my world.
In the spirit of doing what I want (and when I want), I couldn’t resist throwing on a pair of heels with these outrageous pjs to help celebrate in! Thank you all again for making this year one for the books.
