Twenty-Nine
Twenty-Nine | Freckled Italian

I'm twenty-nine today and feeling so incredibly blessed and lucky and loved.

Rob and I are in Richmond again for a few days after spending the weekend in Virginia Beach with family for a wedding--tonight we're having dinner with some of my best friends and tomorrow we fly back to California to pack up and move into the house that we'll bring our daughter home to in just three months.

Twenty-eight was pretty darn good but I'm really looking forward to all the incredible moments this next year will bring.

Twenty-Seven

Today is my birthday.

26 was a really hard year for me. I didn't share most of it. I was ambiguous and distant online and sometimes even in my personal life, and I think that made things harder. But I will say this:

Even throughout life's troubles, there is still full and deep joy to be had. Life is complex, and that is beautiful.

There is a long and lovely list of things that have brought me joy this year--my wonderful marriage, our sweet and sometimes rowdy puppy, and big successes in my career. I traveled and ate and made new friends and turned an unfamiliar city into a home. I discovered new passions and am learning, slowly but surely, to let go.

So today, like most days, I'm looking forward to what good things the future has in store. Here's to 27.

Happy Birthday, Husband

Today is Rob's birthday! It is so amazing to me that we met when he was just 19, and here we are today. I am so proud of everything he has accomplished in his short 26 years, and even prouder to call him my husband.

Rob, you are the smartest, kindest, funniest person I know and I love you so very much. Thank you for everything you do for me--you are truly my better half and I thank God every day that I get to spend my life with you.
