One Year Older And (maybe) Wiser, Too

Oh dear... I am nearing the point in life where the term "20-something" is becoming irrelevant... Looking back I never imagined I'd be where I am, doing what I am, at this age. I blame it on fairytales little girls are told about "Prince Charming" and "picket fences" (or castles). Yet, here I am - one year older, perhaps a little wiser (although I wouldn't count on it), and yet, I still feel like the baby. There is so much to experience in life and the more I experience the more I realize how much left there is to see and do. The more I learn the more I realize how much more there is to learn.

I decided the other day that rather than letting age take a year away from me, I am going to let it add vivacity. For each year we live, we shouldn't lose life - we should gain it. The experiences - good or bad - only add life to our eyes and broaden our minds. Each year we live, our capacity for wonder should increase - because with each passing day we are shown new ideas and witness moments that we never thought possible.

top - h&m (similar)
shorts - old navy
shoes - sven clogs
necklace - madewell 
bracelets - color by amber
clutch - anthropologie

So here's to my late 20's and the rest of eternity - I've got so much life left to live.
