…on being 27

Last Tuesday, I turned 27. Remember when 27 seemed so old? Let alone 30 or 40?! I really don’t feel 27. I’m not exactly sure what age I do feel, but it’s still tripping me out that I’m 27. (J’s having an extremely hard time with the fact that he’s turning 29 this year, I can’t imagine how he’s going to feel about 30.)
In honor of turning 27, I thought I’d take a minute to reflect…

I am…

…a girl who could spend every day, all day, in jeans and a sweatshirt or preferrably pajama pants and a sweatshirt, but that’s not so cute when out in public.

…a dreamer and an idealist. A true Aquarian. I have all of these amazing plans and grand ideas. My husband is always trying to bring me back down to reality. I’d rather focus on what could be, than what is.
…longing for the midnight sun. It’s that time of year when winter is like a heavy burden, we’re ready to shed. I can’t wait for the feeling of the sun on my face, the river waves splashing against the boat, and the anticipation of a giant fish at the end of my line.
…dying for some brides to get back into their dresses and pose for me. I have so many ideas for styled shoots I want to do, but it’s been so hard finding anyone to pose for me. Come on, it’s a FREE session people!!
…still coming to terms with being married. In a good way of course!! There are days when I look at J and say, “We’re married!! You’re my HUSBAND!!! That’s so weird!!” (to which he rolls his eyes and looks at me like I’m a nut job) but it’s an incredible feeling. I’ve never been happier, felt more secure, and in love. Even after almost 6 years together, he still spoils me, surprises me, and makes me laugh, big, giant belly laughs.
…searching for something more. Whether it’s a career where I can make a difference, pursuing my obsession with passion for photography, starting a family of our own, whatever it may be. I’m searching for something more. I’ll let you know when I find it.
