It really doesn't seem like it's been a year since my last birthday, but I guess it has. I will take credit for being another year older. As for another year wiser, I am going to wait and see.
Today, I officially turn 34. I'm officially in my mid-30's now.
But, then again, age is only a number. You're only as old as you feel, they say (who this "they" is I'm not quite sure). Some days (esp. those after I've pushed myself in spin class...something I've done all week so I can enjoy birthday cake guilt free tonight), I feel a bit older. Most days, I have a hard time believing I'm really past 30.
Looking back, I had a good run at 33. Some ups, some downs and a lot of pleasant time in the valleys between the peaks.
So, here's looking forward to 34 and seeing what will unfold.
Of course, it wouldn't be a birthday post if I didn't shamlessly fish for happy birthday wishes in the comments. (Too needy and obvious? Yes, but hey--it's my birthday!)
