I had such an awesome birthday weekend spent with the best people I know. We threw a mini party at my sister's house, I was spoilt rotten and then on Sunday the other half took me out for dinner. It couldn't have been a better way to start my twenty-fifth year. 

I'm always reminded by how lucky I am to have the family that I do when we all get together. There is never a dull moment, someone always has a good story to tell or there's an amazing discussion. The room is always filled with love and I'm so thankful to have every one of them be a part of my life.

Anyway, enough with the soppy stuff and on with the questions for today...
What’s the best part of growing older?
Growing older isn't always what it's cracked up to be. There are a lot of responsibilities and financial worries that are easily forgotten about as a child when all you want is the freedom to do whatever you want, whenever you want. or me, the best thing about growing older is also one of the worst: being able to make your own decisions about life. I like being able to make my own choices about how I decorate my house or what to do with my time. By the same token, making big decisions can be tough but with age comes more experience which can only mean I'll get better at decision making in the end. Right?

What’s been on your mind most lately?
This wedding. I can't believe in two weeks time it'll be over and I'll be Mrs T. This marriage has been a long time coming. I met the other half over nine years ago and I don't regret a single day I've spent with him; good and bad. 
What do you think is worth waiting for?
Anything worth having is worth waiting for. Sometimes the timing just isn't right for something to work out and the only way to get what you want is to wait it out. You'll know in your gut if it's worth waiting for.  

What chances do you wish you had taken?
I don't like to live with regrets. Sometimes I wish that I had taken more opportunities to socialise or decided on a different course to study history or childcare. The thing is I didn't do any of that, I didn't make those choices but that's okay. All that given me the life I have today and made me the person that I am. I'm cool with that.

Where else would you like to live? Why?
Honestly, nowhere else. My life and family are routed here and I have no intention of ever leaving them. I'm not one for travelling either so it's not something I would ever consider doing. Props to those that do venture further afield than where they grew up!
How would you answer these questions?

  1. I'm glad you had a lovely birthday!
    The best part of growing older? I think I agree with you! Decisions, decisions, even if they are the bane of my life!

    1. Thanks lovely.
      I think it's possible to love the fact that we have the opportunity to make our own decisions but hate having to make them at the same time. I do like feeling like I'm even just a little bit more in control of my life!

  2. Happy belated birthday! And oh my - 2 weeks until your wedding?! That's come up so quickly! Urrrgh growing old - that's meant working out about buying lawn mowers and mortgages and gas bills and boring old stuff like that haha. Bills are endless. I thought i'd be more worldy, and know more about what I should be doing, or how to do stuff at this age, that hasn't happened, I sometimes wonder if it ever will.

    1. Bills are horrible but necessary things for being a grown up. I don't think I'll ever know what I am "meant" to be doing with my life which, to be honest, is something I thought I'd have figured out by now. No worries. I'm just along for the ride anyway!
