Turning 35 is not so bad

Turning 35 is not so bad

This first outfit is what I decided to wear on my 35th birthday kicking around Amsterdam with the man I love. Which was the perfect way to celebrate a significant milestone for me.   In the months leading up to my birthday I had begun to feel that the focus in our lives was starting to shift. And now there is no denying it, we are taking a turn in an unknown direction which is exciting but also a bit scary for me because I hate not knowing what may lie ahead. Normally I would be in a quiet freakout mode trying to work through this by myself, but I suddenly realized that I am not by myself. In fact I have a man that listens when I talk and makes me feel like together we can tackle anything.  So maybe that is why I wanted to celebrate a new year away from all other constants but one another.  It was a way to reaffirm that we are starting this new chapter together. Others may come and go in our lives, but we will always be one another’s home.

    I can’t believe you’re 35. Anyway, you look beautiful in your outfits! More importantly though (to me), if you ever decide to get rid of that belt I am first in line!

      Thank you Veronica! I actually don’t wear the belt very often so if it does end up in the donate/sell pile I’ll let you know!
