Reflections Of A 25 Year Old...


*Disclaimer: this was written on the eve of my 26th b.day...

So tomorrow I turn 26... I have been struggling all year about what this means exactly and how I feel about it. Funy story about one of hub's granmother's, she started lying about her age so early on that to this day, no one knows how old she really is and refuses to be addressed as grandma! I can totally see this being me in the future. What is it about age that scares me so much? As I inch my way closer to 30 I keep feeling more and more overwhelmed with each birthday! I remember when 30 seemed ancient! So old and adult... the fun ends... and life starts going down hill doesn't it???

The truth is that I don't really feel all that more adult with each passing year... responsible? Who knows... mature? Not sure about that either... ready to call myself a full blown adult??? No way! And I think that what scares me the most about ending my 20's is society's (as well as family and friends) expectancy that we will soon start a family! Getting married was scary enough, although I must admit now nearly half a year into it, it's not bad at all! But I fear raising children is quite different than marriage. Becoming responsible for a whole person... yikes! I used to think that I'ld like to have kids in my mid 20's... that got pushed into my 30's... and now as that nears too, I'm afraid I still won't be ready.

When I started thinking about this year's birthday, I was determined it was a horrible thing and the only options were to either ignore and not celebrate at all (remove from facebook too!) or re-celebrate as 25 and begin my own version of confusion so know one would ever know my true age in the future... Now I know how ridiculous this all sounds, and trust me the hub's was right there to point it out... but what he also pointed out was all the good things that came with age and all the great things I've accomplished in just 25 years of life (he is my own personal cheerleader!).

And so I have re focused my thoughts and put all of my energy and effort into making this a great year! 26 means the first year of life with my husband who I love dearly... living in our first apartment together... the gaining of new family and friends... embarking on the next chapter of my career (hopefully soon!) in a new country... and many more things. I have this list of things I hope to accomplish before I turn 30, and surprisingly I have already crossed off more than I thought! I will be adding it as a separate page on my blog later to share with you all and keep me focused.

Sorry this was such a vent session... I'm sure you can relate with something or other that has scared you right? Alright then, with all this said, I have decided... as my facebook satus now says (so it must be true!) 26 is going to be awesome!!!!! So I off I go to celebrate with friends, family, and love ones with tequila shots! Cause I mean hey I may be facing 26 head on, but I'm still nervous ;)


Work Day...


Today I will be in my own little cocoon working on a project... so that means no time for fun posts or wear it*wednesday, oh boo! But to help keep myself motivated (and make my deadline) I promise to post my project once I'm all done so check back later =)

I've got babies on the brain... and no NOT to have them so relax!!! I'm talking clothing, fashion, and newborns... I am venturing new territory here (with the newborn size range I mean) so no telling how this work out... could be fabulous... or could be something else all together.

I'm off for my morning run...


Work It Out...


Good morning!!! I don't know what is up with this London weather but I am not complaining... pour all the sunshine on me that you will. I apologize for the extra cheery spirit but you'll have to excuse me, I'm from Miami and the sun is like crack to me! All the golden sunshine has kept me motivated to start my running back up along with some nice stretches before and after sooooo.......... I decided to dedicate today's post to my workout regime.... a few of my favorite songs to stretch and then run to. Feel free to add suggestions in the comments since I get bored easily and always need an update.

Kiss Me Forever...


Hello all! Not much to report today... I've been pretty busy and actually got to tick off all of the things on my to-do list today!!! Don't you just LOVE when that happens... yay for me! Some things on my list were pretty domestic... laundry, cleaning the flat, grocery shopping. Others we're more me like running and cooking the hubs a healthy meal =)

Well I'm off to bed... got some more flat viewings for tomorrow and have to finish some work in there as well... not to mention compiling some awesomeness for you all for tue. tunes!!! So I'm leaving you all with this video little K shared with me, claiming the main character is hub's french superstar doppelganger (her words not mine). I love me some pale, skinny European men hu???

Don't worry hubby, your dance moves are way better than his ;)
