I love Jesus Christ and devote my life to following Him. I'm madly in love with my husband jon. I'm the mother of the most perfect babies in the world. I'm a Senior Sales Associate at my beloved Anthropologie. I'm a reader, thinker, lover, believer and traveler. I'd trade in the chicago skyline for the pacific coast any day. i love a good vino. i love my books. i'm creative as creativity goes but always wanted to be a painter. i prefer letter writing over emailing. And I always try to be a kinder person.

On Sunday, I celebrated my 27th birthday. In a past post, I discussed a bit of anxiety I was having over becoming a 27 year old.
The update:

I never thought it would feel this good

Its as though overnight, I became an adult. I became sure of myself...sure of the future, no matter how uncertain. I'm happy, optimistic...and that post seems silly in retrospect. 27 seems to have turned over a new leaf for me. I'm making decisions...decisions about what kind of wife I will be, what kind of mother I will be. I'm making decisions about what I do with my time, how I take care of myself. I'm making decisions to be grateful, to be still, to listen. I'm making decisions about being a Godly woman, about surrendering. I'm prioritizing.

I have a great peace, as though someone cut the strings of my past and gave me a blank book to start writing in. As cheesy as it sounds, there is no better way of describing it. Its bliss.
