Twenty Six

Life Twenties

I hate that the years are flying by so quickly, but I’m always thankful when a new year comes around. I can’t tell you where I’m going to celebrate this evening because I actually don’t know! I have a date with my mom and dad to a mystery location. Here’s hoping the night ends with icing.

Although, I’m not sure any cake could top last year’s in terms of the amount of buttercream per square inch.

Does anyone have any advice for my 27th year?

    My 28 year-old self would tell the 26 year-old version of me to: get good sleep, dance like a maniac whenever you get the chance, celebrate good friends (and try your hardest to stay in touch or get back in touch!), enjoy the process, and most importantly — it’s hard to see the connectedness of things looking forward, but looking back, it always makes sense. So exhale, enjoy, and look forward to an amazing year! 🙂 Happy Bday Laura! I’m so glad you’re here.

    Oh geez, I turn 27 next week so if you get some good advice do share. Cake is consoling instead of celebratory to me now! What a bummer I am! Hah.. Anyway, happy birthday!

    Happy birthday! I turned 27 this past June, which felt oddly serious to me (number-wise). My advice would be to not take life too seriously and enjoy the present. There’s a quote about the days being long but the years being short – so true. Soak it all in!

    Happy Birthday!! Enjoy all the little things in life…the bigger things (work, etc.) will work themselves out. With each experience you learn a little bit more about yourself and what you want out of life. Enjoy that journey, it’s an exciting one. 🙂

    Happy birthday!!! I hope you had a wonderful day. I’m younger than you so I feel like I shouldn’t give you advice… one thing I’ve tried to do over the past year is say yes more. I always end up having so much fun going to do something I didn’t really want to do in the first place.
    Don’t apply this rule to your workplace though, or you just end up everyone’s bitch!
